John Wick 2 Chad Stahelski David Leitch Keanu Reeves Banner

JOHN WICK 2 is set to start production this fall, however David Leitch won't be behind the camera for the sequel. Leitch co-directed the first movie with Chad Stahelski, and Collider has learned that Stahelski will be helming the follow-up on his own, although Leitch is still attached to the film as an executive producer.

The duo have both been approached to direct other movies (earlier this year it was rumored that they were being courted to direct a DC film), so it's possible that Leitch won't be returning for JOHN WICK 2 due to commitments to a different project, especially since the site claims that they've "been hearing a few things." While nothing has been confirmed yet, we'll know for sure if there's an announcement in the near future.

Leitch not coming back probably won't have a negative effect on the quality of the movie, but I do hope that he and Stahelski are planning on directing something together again. What do you think Keanu Reeves' Wick will be up to in the sequel? Maybe he's opened up an animal shelter following the events from the first film, and it gets firebombed when his past catches up with him?

JOHN WICK 2 doesn't have a release date yet, but it will likely open sometime next year.

Considering his relationship with Winston at The Continental, I think it would be cool if a new criminal element threatened the hotel. And bring in a similarly skilled hit-man with a different home base to take on John Wick. Think Jack Palance in "Shane". John worked out his own issues in the first movie, but he also showed a loyalty to Marcus that I'm sure extends to other members of the New York underworld. Any love interest he has needs to be hard won, given how much he loved his wife.

I do hope we get a glimpse of his past life in flashbacks of some sort. Like how and why he got into the business and maybe show some of his training to show how he got as great as he is.

And maybe a new love interest as well.

I'm guessing John Wick moves to a new place and some local town's big shot's son pisses him off. John Wick is now back in action mode once again.
