Keanu Reeves Is Back In 'John Wick 2', As Filming Begins Later This Fall!!

By Matt O'Bryant

What's up guys and gals,

Last year, Keanu Reeves returned to being a badass action star in the hit film John Wick.  The film was widely praised as being one of the the best action films of the decade and perhaps of all time. The film also set up an amazing character in John Wick and a unique world that felt truly realized by the writer and the directors of the film.  John Wick 2 will hit theaters sometime next year with filming set to begin later this fall.  Directors David Leitch and Chad Stahelski along with screenwriter Derek Kolstad are all returning for the sequel.

Lionsgate President of Acquisitions Jason Constantine said:

With such tremendous fan and critical support for JOHN WICK, we knew that there was still so much more of this story to tell. We are thrilled that Keanu, David and Chad have re-teamed with us and promise to bring audiences even more excitement the second time around.
— Jason Constantine

Director Chad stahelski and David Leitch talking about all the ideas they have for continuing the story of John Wick and this badass world they have set up:

We have ideas for days and without blinking twice we know we can outdo the action from the original. It’s the matter of story and how much you like the character. That’s always the most important. If there’s great action but you have a character that no one likes and doesn’t have charisma you’re not going to watch it. Look at any great action star, whether it’s Harrison Ford or Liam Neeson or Robert Downey Jr., pick a name, you love the guy first. Good action, bad action, you just love them in action. So we want to make sure we have a story and a character that everybody loves and then we’ll dress it with action that we promise will be awesome.
— Chad Stahelski

No release date has been set for this film.
