Keanu Reeves Gives Details About John Wick Sequel

While taking to Collider about his upcoming film Knock Knock, Keanu Reeves gave some details about the John Wick sequel:

“Chad Stahelski, the director, spoke about how there’s one challenge of the first film, but then the second one it’s like the second record, it’s like the “What do you do now?” So yeah, there’s a big concern and we don’t want it to fucking suck. I think we have a really good premise, and it’s an organic premise. It’s basically — to me there’s John Wick and then there’s John. John is the married guy whose wife just died, and that five years of his life. Then there’s John Wick, who’s the mythical assassin. In this, John Wick’s past comes and infiltrates John’s life and John Wick, in a way, has to fight for John.”

Reeves talked a bit about what to expect out of the action:

“I started training a couple of months ago. We’re gonna do the same kind of thing in the sense of — what are the guiding principles? So it’s longer takes, know where you are on the space, who’s doing what, action with consequence. And then going to other levels of what the gun-Fu was, which was Jujitsu and Judo mixed with weapons and different styles of weapon training. So we’ve been opening up, I’ve been learning some other tools and different styles of that, and trying to develop some more techniques in terms of Judo and Jujitsu and bring those elements into the work. And then we have some other things that might be a little different.”

Production is set to begin pretty darn soon:

We’re scheduled to start at the end of October, maybe. Right now that’s kind of the target date but we’ll see.

If the sequel is half as good as the original, we’ll be pretty damn happy.
