Hardcore action film, John Wick was one of the surprise hits of 2014 and it certainly re-established Keanu Reeves as an action star. Now, following the formula that Taken provided for Liam Neeson, John Wick is set to be turned into a franchise vehicle or Reeves.
That seems to be the plan directors Chad Stahelski and David Leitch have as they’re reportedly working on John Wick 2. “We’re in development right now. 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,” said the duo in a recent interview with movies.com.
Although John Wick 2 is currently just in an ideas phase, there’s no denying that there’s a market for the film and the hardcore action genre judging by how well the film did at the box-office. However, it remains to be seen if Reeves would be interested in portraying the character again.
The actor has been keeping busy with a number of films in development and he’s also rumoured to reprise the role that established him as a movie star in another Bill & Ted sequel. Would you rather see Reeves as Theodore Logan or John Wick?
