Keanu Reeves, Directors David Leitch & Chad Stahelski return for John Wick 2

05.04.2015

It's official: JOHN WICK is coming back...again! Lionsgate has made it official and announced that Keanu Reeves will reprise his role as the hitman avenging his wife and dog in last year's surprise hit action film. JOHN WICK 2 will also see the return of directors David Leitch and Chad Stahelski who have been in high demand since the first film was released to massive buzz. No additional cast or release date news was announced.

Lionsgate President of Acquisitions Jason Constantine released this statement about the sequel.

“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.”

Stahelski and Leitch have been rumored to take on directing duties for the Chris Pratt vehicle COWBOY NINJA VIKING and are attached to direct Valiant Comics movie adaptation of BLOODSHOT. It is unclear when they will find time to make JOHN WICK 2, but with the first film budgeted at just $20 million and filming over three months, maybe they could squeeze it in before either of those two projects.

While we don't know the plot for JOHN WICK 2, the directors already have some ideas. Either way, JOHN WICK is back, baby!

There were a few matters about the first John Wick that could have been improved (a little more investment of time and money and a better ending would have elevated it to all-time classic status), but there were some excellent action / gunplay scenes and it created a cool little world that could easily be revisited in a sequel, so I'd be interested to see more. If they kill his dog again I fear for their wellbeing.

Yeah I'm thinking I'm back...again!

Great news. Love to see him on the job now instead of seeking revenge.

It's so fortunate that Keanu influenced the directors to change the movie title from SCORNED to JOHN WICK. With the latter you can pretty much go anywhere with the character, while a SCORNED 2 movie would just feel like a rehash of the first one, kind of like the TAKEN series where Bryan Mills must repeatedly have his family members taken from him in every sequel.

Seem to recall a Skinemax movie called Scorned & I believe they made 2 or 3 sequels or so I heard somewhere.

yeah John Wick is a better title than Scorned. It sounds so generic.

Hells Yeah!!!

I loved the first one, and am thrilled they're all coming back for the sequel. They created such a rich, textured criminal underworld for the first one, and I can't wait to see what they do with this one.

And I am happy that Reeves finally has a character that both allows him to show some of his acting talent, as well as kicks ass... Usually he only gets parts where he can do one or the other.

Easily my favorite action film of last year. Just such a good, refreshing, smart, and stylish action film with a kick ass career relevant performance from Reeves.

Hope they some fresh new ideas this time around to make it stand out again like the original did.

OK... just not as much crappy club music, please

I'm all for a good revenge action movie. I just had to turn the volume down a lot because of the shitty techno-ripoff music.

We get more Equalizer and John Wick, awesome. The two action movies last year that were surprise hit. While I'm not sure if Equalizer can match the original, with these directors back for the John Wick sequel, I'm sure it'll be good

I was surprised how much I liked this movie. I thought I'd been burned out on revenge movies, but between the directors and Keanu Reeves (and a badass supporting cast) this was some of the most fun I had at the theater last year. Everything was so tight, from the fights, to explaining why the cops don't show up with all the gunfire going on (they're just as afraid of him as the Russians are). When a movie comes out and blindsides me like this one, the question I have for a sequel is, do they

When a movie comes out and blindsides me like this one, the question I have for a sequel is, do they have anywhere to go that isn't just a retread of the last movie. I believe they do. Just the Continental alone could yield two or three good movies. Bring it!

Great news

I loved every minute of John Wick, started off so somber,but it showed you first hand why he went off the way he did, they killed the dog his dead wife gave him. After that, this film had some of the best fight & action scenes we have seen since well The Matrix. I hope they make tons of these movies as John Wick seems like an interesting character. Nice to see Keanu Reeves get his own franchise now.

Do it quickly and make a big deal. The original film was mentioned in passing a bunch on this site and others, pointing out it had been filmed many many months before a somewhat minimalist marketing campaign. The film succeeded on word of mouth. Hopefully it's written, shot, locked and promoted within the next 12 months.
