The first image of Keanu Reeves as ex-hitman John Wick

Aug. 22, 2014by:

There has been little talk about the Keanu Reeves action thriller JOHN WICK since we last brought up it in September of last year. Now Lionsgate has seemingly given it a release date, reminding us this movie still exists. Reeves stars as a former hitman who goes back to work; do they ever really retire though? We have your first look at very professional looking Reeves below.

First here’s the official logline:

An ex-hitman comes out of retirement to track down the gangsters that took everything from him. With New York City as his bullet-riddled playground, JOHN WICK (Keanu Reeves) is a fresh and stylized take on the “assassin genre”.

This is David Leitch and Chad Stahelski’s (two former stuntmen) first feature and I’ll admit it’s usually not a good sign that a movie with a nice leading star is given a sudden release with next to no marketing. Perhaps it will find another life on VOD. The movie also stars Michael Nyqvist,Dean Winters, Bridget Moynahan, Ian McShane, John Leguizamo and Willem Dafoe.

JOHN WICK is set for sudden release on October 24, 2014.

I didn’t forget, Adrianne Palicki also stars; and boom goes the dynamite:

He's still the one!

Ill be up for seeing this. I think Keanu gets a lot of unwarranted criticism for his roles, but I like the guy and can still really enjoy a movie with him in. Plus he gives credits to the VFX industry it deserves. Id be stoked to see him in this kind of role.

Why So Negative?

Strange to be sooooo negative about a film based solely on one image. Not even a teaser is out yet. The cast alone deserves some respect. McShane, Leguizamo, and WILLEM DAFOE! Come on. If Dafoe signed on, it must at least be interesting.

Keanu has fallen on hard times, it seems

After THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL reboot, and 47 RONIN, it looks like he's taking any role that will have him.

Couldn't be further from the truth. Dude hardly accepts any roles. He doesn't give a fuck.

@Preston. You're right. He doesn't give a f@#k how the movie turns outs. Nothing but shit, and this is coming from someone who's favorite movie is The Matrix.
