Keanu Reeves Will Return for JOHN WICK 2
Lionsgate confirmed this week that they plan to produce a sequel to 2014’s critically-acclaimed breakout hit action flick, John Wick. Keanu Reeves along with directors David Leitch and Chad Stahelski, as well as screenwriter, Derek Kolstad, are set to return for the sequel.
“With such tremendous fan and critical support for John Wick, we knew that there was still so much more of this story to tell,” said Jason Constantine, President of Acquisitions and Co-Productions. “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.”
The film will be released through Lionsgate’s Summit Entertainment and will be produced by Thunder Road’s Basil Iwanyk, who produced the first film.
If you haven’t seen John Wick yet, do yourself a favor and watch it now. This revitalized my faith in Keanu Reeves’ abilities as a great actor — kind of like how Tom Cruise fell out of our graces for a while, and redeemed himself in Tropic Thunder. The action sequences are spectacular, the fight scenes are something to behold, and the execution of the story is told in such a way that it doesn’t lose its momentum. And Keanu. Oh man, Keanu. He’s back, baby!
