Colin Woodell of The Continental has promised 'a Different Winston' in the upcoming John Wick spin-off.
Colin Woodell of The Continental teased a different Winston in Peacock's September 22 John Wick prequel spin-off.
“It’s a story of revenge and making amends for what I think is taken from [my character], and that’s my love and my family,” Woodell told Empire Magazine.
Woodell said that the younger Winson isn't as showy as Ian McShane's elder counterpart in the John Wick movies: “I love Ian’s character embellishment and how delicious everything is. At the end of The Continental, you understand what drives him, but I didn't get to taste that delight.
Peacock calls the Continental three-part. Episodes 1 and 2 premiere on September 22 and 29, respectively. The finale airs October 6.
“The three-part event will explore the origin behind the iconic hotel-for-assassins centerpiece of the John Wick universe through the eyes and actions of a young Winston Scott,” per the official logline.
“He’s dragged into 1970s New York City’s Hell-scape to face a past he thought he’d left behind. Winston braves the hotel's dangerous underworld to seize the hotel where he will rule.
