Part of what made John Wick so awesome beyond its kick-ass fight sequences was the courage within its plot. Not many films have the b*lls to kill a dog onscreen, making audiences feel uncomfortable, but also invested in the main character’s quest for revenge.
The sequel, titled John Wick: Chapter 2, will be directed once again by Chad Stahelski. Both him and writer Derek Kolstad are more than aware that killing another dog onscreen wouldn’t work once again. Instead, they will focus on the best part about John Wick and that’s seeing the character kick-ass. Except this time, John will be facing assassins with skills a little more par with his.
I’m hoping for this film to be just as fun and badass as the first. Keanu Reeves returns as John and is reunited with John Leguizamo, Lance Reddick,Bridget Moynahan, and Ian McShane. Also joining the sequel is Laurence Fishburne, Ruby Rose,Common, Peter Stormare, and Riccardo Scamarcio. Check out the synopsis for John Wick: Chapter 2 below.
Keanu Reeves returns in the sequel to the 2014 hit as legendary hitman John Wick who is forced to back out of retirement by a former associate plotting to seize control of a shadowy international assassins’ guild. Bound by a blood oath to help him, John travels to Rome where he squares off against some of the world’s deadliest killers. Lionsgate’s “John Wick: Chapter 2” arriving in theaters on February 10, 2017.
