#JohnWick2 Begins Filming This Fall

We already knew it was happening, but now we have a timescale. Following up the stonking original with some alacrity, John Wick 2 will rage into production in the autumn of this year. Keanu Reeves, directors David Leitch and Chad Stahelski, and producer Basil Iwanyck are all returning for more mayhem. “We have ideas for days and without blinking twice we know we can outdo the action from the original,” Stahelski said a couple of months ago. “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

John Wick Sequel Could Happen

The first film hasn’t even made it over here yet, but John Wick directors Chad Stahelski and David Leitch are already mulling over ideas for a sequel to the action thriller, which is in development. John Wick finds Keanu Reeves as the titular tough guy, who has given up bullet slinging for a quiet life after his wife dies. But, because he’s a cinematic assassin, his life can never quite be that easy or calm. On a random errand, he runs afoul of some gangsters who take a shine to his car. Rebuffed, they track him down and take everything, even killing his beloved dog. Enraged, Wick picks up the tools of his trade once more and soon no one is safe... Stuntmen-turned-directors Stahelski and Leitch (the latter isn’t credited but definitely worked on calling the shots) made something that US audiences have embraced as a cult hit and has helped boost Reeves’ career. While there are no specifics on the sequel’s story or even if the star will return, the filmmakers know their focus, as th

John Wick Review: Face-Shootings are Apparently In

John Wick combines slick action, perfectly-placed humor, and a puppy. Go figure. In John Wick , Keanu Reeves plays a cold-blooded hitman whose world is turned upside down when a trio of Russian mobsters destroy the one connection to his deceased wife. The action flick - directed by stuntmen Chad Stahelski and David Leitch - takes Wick on a vicious killing spree, as he systematically eliminates his enemies all the way to the top dog Viggo Tarasov, played by Michael Nyqvist.

Having zero expectations, I found Wick to be completely enjoyable. The action is fluid, the car stunts well-conceived, the humor perfectly placed. For two guys who never sat in the center chair o
