One of the most surprising movies of 2014 was Keanu Reeves' stylish and action packed "JOHN WICK", a movie that really came out of nowhere and shocked audiences with how goddamn entertaining it was!
Fans of the action film have been begging for a sequel and that wish has just come true. Reeves will be back as the character along with directors David Leitch and Chad Stahelski plus screenwriter Derek Kolstad.
There are no details on what the film will be about (as long as John Wick kills some bad guys.....I don't care), but the directors admitted that they have plenty of ideas of where to take this character.
“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.”
“With such tremendous fan and critical support for John Wick, we knew that there was still so much more of this story to tell,” says Lionsgate's Jason Constantine. “We are thrilled that Keanu, David and Chad have reteamed with us and promise to bring audiences even more excitement the second time around.”
John Wick was an action film that was predictable and ridiculous as hell, but it blew me away! The music, the visuals of the adrenaline pumping action left me wanting more and more whilst still being fully satisfied with what I had just witnessed. A lot of the films greatness must be owed to Keanu Reeves who just knocks it out of the park in this movie and I honestly wouldn't be interested in a second film is Reeves wasn't involved. John Wick is one of my favorite action films in years!
The movie is confirmed to be a sequel and I'm so glad, I want the backstory of Wick to be a bit vague and mysterious, but I want to explore the world around him more. The Hitman Hotel; "The Continental" was fascinating!
