I’m of mind that John Wick was an awesome revenge flick. I saw it in theaters and loved every minute.
It had such a great mix of humor, high-octane action and mystique. In particular, the dive into the assassin underworld was intriguing. I always wondered if they were going to explore it further, and it turns out they will.
Lionsgate officially announced that work has started on the sequel, John Wick 2. Hell yes!
Who’s Working on the Sequel?
Chad Stahelski and David Leitch, directors from the first film, will be returning for the sequel along with Keanu Reeves and screenwriter Derek Kolstad. The gang’s all here!
Basil Iwanyk — producer of The Town, all three Expendables movies, and John Wick — will be producing the sequel, as well.
Other than that it’s up in the air at this point. There’s no word on whether or not some of the other actors from the first film will reprise their roles. I’d expect to see Ian McShane, Lance Reddick, and John Leguizamo again.
Unfortunately, there’s no word on a release schedule yet.
What did you think of the first film? Did you enjoy it as much as I did? I’m looking forward to diving back into the seedy, assassin underworld.
