Yes it's true, this highly underrated action film from last year has a sequel in development according to the filmmakers. In an interview with movies.com, directors Chad Stahelski and David Leitch said:
“We have ideas for days and without blinking twice we know we can outdo the action from the original,” Stahelski said. “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.”
Deadline is also now reporting that they are looking to turn John Wick into a franchise.
Wow guys... this is pretty awesome, especially for action fans, and there are numerous directions that these films could travel toward. They could continue the story of John Wick after the events of the last one, or explore the history of The Continental Hotel or explore this world of assassins and this secret society, for lack of a better word.
The first John Wick had a surprising amount of world building for an action flick, and I would assume that they would continue building this world in the sequel. This is really exciting.
