John Wick was one of 2014’s best surprises. Little did I know that star Keanu Reeves could carry such a bad-ass action film, loaded with style and substance.
Directors David Leitch and Chad Stahelski crafted a brilliant action flick, with extremely well choreographed fight sequences and first class camerawork that elevated Derek Kolstad‘s script to instant classic status.
Today, Lionsgate has confirmed that both directors, the screenwriter and the film’s star are all returning for a sequel, which is easily the best news that I’ve heard in weeks.
John Wick 2 is hopefully going to top the already amazing work that was delivered in John Wick and maybe even give us a new franchise character to really get behind.
No word on when the film will be hitting theaters, but we’ll keep you posted whenever we find out more details.
If you haven’t seen the film yet, be sure to read my official review right here and go out and rent or buy the flick as soon as possible.
Here’s the official word from Lionsgate:
“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.”
