What’s up with the sequel to the manliest movie of 2014? Well it’s happening, which is probably the most important thing. The first movie kind of gave Keanu Reeves‘ career a fresh kick start. Keanu Reeves has been talking about the movie this week.
“We have ideas for days and without blinking twice we know we can outdo the action from the original,” Stahelski told Movies.com.
“It’s the matter of story and how much you like the character. That’s always the most important,” he added, and explained that they want to come up first with a story that will make the viewers love the character more. After that, they’ll “dress [the film]” with the action sequences that Stahelski said people will definitely find “awesome.”
The Wrap reported that Lionsgate’s Jason Constantine is excited over the reunion of Keannu Reeves, and the two directors for the sequel.
“[W]e 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,” the Lionsgate President for Acquisitions and Co-Productions announced.
The first John Wick film was the story of a former assassin who sought revenge after his former employers assaulted him and killed his dog, his only companion after his wife was killed by disease.
