First Look: Keanu Reeves in Action as Vengeful Hitman 'John Wick'
It's been awhile since Keanu Reeves has really done anything worth paying attention to, but maybe a new shot of him getting back into action, and not in some weird medieval fantasy world, will help him get his groove back. John Wick is a new action thriller coming this fall, and while the title doesn't sound like anything special, the first look image of Reeves in the film is pretty bad ass, showing the star of The Matrix franchise armed and dangerous, complete with some longer hair and a beard. The film sees Reeves as the titular character, an ex-hitman who is out for vengeance. Sounds generic, but we're still hoping for the best.
Here's the first look at David Leitch & Chad Stahelski's John Wick, originally from Yahoo:
John Wick is directed by David Leitch & Chad Stahelski and written by Derek Kolstad (The Package, One in the Chamber). Keanu Reeves plays the title character, an ex-hitman on an adrenaline-fueled path to revenge and redemption when he is forced back into action by a sadistic young thug and must hunt down his adversaries with the skill and ruthlessness that made him an underworld legend. Bridget Moynahan, Michael Nyqvist, Jason Isaacs, Willem Dafoe, Lance Reddick, Alfie Allen, Adrianne Palicki and Dean Winters also star in the film which is slated to hit theaters this fall on October 24th. Anyone interested?
