“John Wick 2” Starts Filming This Fall

It looks like a follow up to the solid Keanu Reeves hitman film John Wick will begin filming soon. Frusane spoke with co-director Chad Stahelski, who will be co-directing with David Leitch from a script by Derek Kolstad, and he had this to say about the sequel:

“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. 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.”
Sequels rarely hold a candle to the original, but John Wick was such a good film that even a mediocre sequel would likely be better than a lot of other films to come out.
