Last year Keanu Reeves was thrust back into our lives as a legitimately compelling action star in John Wick. The movie came out of nowhere to kick ass and reestablish names, and now we're already anticipating the sequel. In an interview with Movies.com directors Chad Stahelski and David Leitch said John Wick 2 is currently in development.
Neither Stahelski or Leitch revealed if Reeves would return, but Stahelski did admit, "If we could work with Keanu Reeves for 10 movies you’d have a really cool career."
However, the two did reveal the challenges of making second film:
“We have ideas for days and without blinking twice we know we can outdo the action from the original,” Stahelski said. “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.”
“You gotta go on a journey with the guy and have to like the guy,” Leitch added.
If Reeves does return we do have a suggestion for the plot, which the directors were mum about. John Wick could protect his house against swarms of people, including a naked woman, trying to break into his house to harm his dog.
