Just yesterday we revealed our John Wick DVD review and proclaimed it a must-see as one of the best action flicks we’ve seen in a while and one of the best turns by Keanu Reeves in years.
Now news arrives today that filmmakers Chad Stahelski and David Leitch have been working on a sequel. We thought Reeves might have a new franchise on his hands!
“We have ideas for days and without blinking twice we know we can outdo the action from the original. It’s the matter of story and how much you like the character. That’s always the most important. If there’s great action but you have a character that no one likes and doesn’t have charisma you’re not going to watch it,” Stahelski told Movies.com.
“Look at any great action star, whether it’s Harrison Ford or Liam Neeson or Robert Downey Jr., pick a name, you love the guy first. Good action, bad action, you just love them in action. So we want to make sure we have a story and a character that everybody loves and then we’ll dress it with action that we promise will be awesome.”
There is no word as to whether Reeves would return, but we cannot think of any reason in the universe why he wouldn’t return to a role that firmly put him back on the A-list and gave him those priceless John Wick quotes.
