One of the surprise movie hits in the last few years was John Wick, which starred Keanu Reeves. It was loved by fans, and it did well enough to get a sequel, which has now finished filming. Keanu talked with IGN and revealed what many can expect from John Wick Chapter 2. Mainly, Reeves said the film will have an increase in intensity.
He stated: “For us it was just what is the next chapter? What is the continuation of this story? Opening up the world – the underground world. The world behind the world in terms of the assassins. Kind of evolving the action – if the first one was a black belt, then this one is third degree black belt. It’s such a fun project and a great character.”
Also in this sequel is a reunion of sorts, as Lawerence Fishburne joins the cast. Reeves talked about his role, and the return of Peter Stomare.
“Laurence has this fantastic role as a character in the Underworld called The Bowery King” Reeves explained. “He plays such a great character in the piece and he brings of course humour, intelligence, charisma and fascination – he’s such an incredible actor and it was a pleasure to work with him again. And Peter Stormare – Stormare has more of a cameo in it but again he brings such fun and mystery and this mixture of groundedness and the surreal.”
John Wick Chapter 2 releases in theaters on February 10th, 2017.
