‘John Wick’ Director Chad Stahelski Hired For Lionsgate’s ‘Arcana’ – Urban Fantasy Penned By ‘Predators’ Screenwriters

Lionsgate is really keen on keeping John Wick franchise director Chad Stahelski at the studio, as Deadline reports they’ve attached to him a direct a spec-script titled Arcana they just picked up from Predators screenwriters Michael Finch and Alex Litvak.

A gritty urban fantasy set in the hidden world of magical clans.

The project seems to be in the director’s wheelhouse as he has been developing a reboot of the sci-fi fantasy action franchise Highlander, which could materialize as either a film or television series.

Stahelski will produce via 87Eleven Entertainment.

Chad will be a little busy for the foreseeable future with Lionsgate hoping to shoot John Wick: Chapter 4 and John Wick: Chapter 5 back-to-back. The fourth installment is expected to begin production once Keanu Reeves completes his work on Matrix 4 possibly in 2021.
