Katie McGrath is among the latest names to join the cast of John Wick spin-off series The Continental.
The series, based on the Keanu Reeves action franchise, will explore the origin behind the hotel-for-assassins through the eyes and actions of a young Winston Scott who is dragged into the Hell-scape of a 1975 New York City to face a past he thought he’d left behind. Winston charts a deadly course through New York’s mysterious underworld in a harrowing attempt to seize the iconic hotel, which serves as the meeting point for the world’s most dangerous criminals.

Executive producer Albert Hughes (The Good Lord Bird, The Book of Eli) will direct Night One and Night Three, while executive producing all three.
