The Russo Brothers seem to have hit the jackpot with Captain America: Civil War, but that's not to say that in the process, they didn't have to ask for a little help from their friends in the business.
In fact, to choreograph the insanely awesome action scenes for their latest superhero flick, they enlisted in the services of Chad Stehelsi and David Leitch. That is, the talented guys who directed shoot-out blockbuster John Wick, starring our beloved Keanu Reeves. Re-watch the trailer below:
In an insightful interview with Collider, the Russo Brothers revealed:
"They did us a huge favor. They're friends of ours, and obviously, they're now off enjoying very successful directing careers, and just as friends we called them and asked them if they'd help us execute some of the action sequences."
"Along with Spiro Razatos, who is generally regarded as the top guy along with Chad and David, so we literally had an all-star team of second unit directors working on this movie with us, because we cared so much about the action, the quality of the action, and we knew we had to work really hard to up our game from Winter Solider, so we wanted to bring in the best people in the business to help us do that."
And that they did! Nice work, guys.
