Posted by: on May 5, 2015 | No Comments

Today has been a busy day for Hollywood. Today Lionsgate Entertainment made it official there will be a John Wick 2 featuring Keanu Reeves. This is definitely great news for all the fans that enjoyed the first John wick movie that was released in 2014. The first John Wick was about a retired hitman seeking vengeance for the killing of his puppy, a gift from his recently deceased wife. I really enjoyed the first John Wick. The first Wick plot was simple and filled with a bunch of really bad guys, and some remarkable practical stunts.This is indeed good news because Keanu Reeves is one of my favorite actors.

I’m curious to see where the original director Chad Stahelski and David Leitch will take the story. Also returning is screen writer Derek Kolstad. The film will be released by Lionsgate’s Summit Entertainment label and will be produced by Thunder Road’s Basil Iwanyk, who produced the first picture. Lionsgate will be selling the film’s international rights at Cannes this week. I hope the sequel can follow the same noir type feel and action. The first John Wick had a thin plotline but it worked because of Reeves and the directors understanding not to take itself too serious. The first Wick had a budget of $20 million and earned more than $78 million at the worldwide box office. The official release date for John Wick 2 is still unknown.
