John Wick was not only a surprise hit in 2014, but the film served as one of the best Keanu Reeves movies in years. For fans of those John Wick quotes, today is a good day.
Lionsgate has announced that they have officially given the green light to John Wick 2 and that all principals are returning to the film that gave us the most unique of takes on the action flick/assassin movie genre in some time.
Reeves will be back in the title role in the sequel. Also returning are directors David Leitch and Chad Stahelski, and the original film’s screenwriter, Derek Kolstad, is also on board for the follow-up.
“With such tremendous fan and critical support for John Wick, we knew that there was still so much more of this story to tell,” said Jason Constantine, President of Acquisitions and Co-Productions for Lionsgate.
“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.”
Stay tuned as more on this story develops, including a release date.
