Yes, you have read that right. After John Wick became a big hit last year, it was only a matter of time before news of a sequel would come out.
Co-directors Chad Stahelski and David Leitch have confirmed that it’s true, but it is still in early development, Stahelski stated: “There’s great action but if you have a character that no one likes and doesn’t have charisma, you’re not going to watch it. 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.”
Considering John Wick was met with mostly positive reviews and has made back triple of its budget worldwide, it would be safe to say that audiences would return. Even if it is just out of curiosity.
No news yet on whether Eva Longoria will return as a producer and Keanu Reeves has yet to agree to return, but something tells us he won’t oppose it once the studio green lights the sequel.
