Keanu Reeves revealed 'John Wick 2’ movie details; Production starts by fall in New York City
While people say that "John Wick" movie does not need a sequel, then the Summit Entertainment announced a sequel movie for the franchise. Reports say the movie won't be about killing another dog again and at this point, the plot and other movie details of the future movie have been unveiled.
During an interview with the Collider, Keanu Reeves (John Wick, Bogeyman, Hitman) revealed that the new installment will be a lot more challenging than the first one. Chad Stahelski has talked to him concerning on what he will do next in "John Wick 2". "I think we have a really good premise and it's an organic premise and it's basically, to me there's John Wick and then there's John," he said.
He also differentiated how his character as John and John Wick distinct with each other. With this, he revealed that his titular character role will greatly affect the storyline of the second film. "You know, John is the married guy whose wife has died and that five years of his life; and then there's John Wick who's the mythical assassin. And in this, John Wick's past comes and infiltrates John's life, and John Wick, in a way, has to fight for John," he said.
With all the speculations that the movie will be actually a prequel of the first box office hit movie, Cinema Blend suggested that it will be more appropriate to the story if it will be a prequel. It might as well be a flashback story.
However, Reeves indicated that the second installment won't propel all the emotional drama out of the movie. But, Slash Film noted that Reeves and the production team have had planned how the movie will be a catch to the moviegoers.
Reeves also claimed that they have a good idea fitted for the emotional hook of the movie. In the first film, there was a scene involving the killer-friendly Continental Hotel which he confirmed that "John Wick 2" will include the influence of the Continental world. With this, fans could get to see more of it.
When asked about the schedule of the filming, he said the production targets a schedule by the end of the month. "John Wick 2" will again be set in New York City.
