John Wick 2 to Film this Fall


It looks like Keanu Reeves may be returning as badass John Wick as early as next year as filming for the sequel is set to begin soon.

Coming Soon reports that Lionsgate President of Acquisitions Jason Constantine said:

‘With such tremendous fan and critical support for JOHN WICK, we 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.’




According to JoBlo Director Chad Stahelski had previously revealed that Leitch and he have no shortage of ideas to draw from for a sequel, it’s just a matter of combining great action with great character:

‘We have ideas for days and without blinking twice we know we can outdo the action from the original. 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.’

Hopefully this hits theatres next year which is looking likely. More news when it happens…

I grew up watching JCVD, Sly and Arnold destroy bad guys, blow things up and spew one-liners like it's a fashion statement. Action is everything I go to the movies for and the reason I came up with this site is to share my love for the genre with everyone. We also want to help promote new talent whether you're making blockbusters, low-budget Indie movies or fan films; if it's action, it's awesome.
