John Wick

Yeah, I'm thinkin' I'm back…again. Last year, plenty of people found a lot to love about the locked and loaded action thriller John Wick starring Keanu Reeves. The action was slick, the story was cool, and Reeves was perfect in the role. Now it sounds like we might get Wicked all over again as Chad Stahelski & David Leitch spoke with Movies.com, and they revealed that John Wick 2 is in development right now. However, saying that the sequel is in development doesn't mean it will definitely happen, but at least the duo has been having some kind of discussion about it, though we're not sure if that includes the studio yet.

Some of this talk could just be chalked up to the fact that John Wick hits Blu-Ray and DVD today, so talk of a sequel would help move some units probably. But Stahelski and Leitch elaborated a little bit about how they're approaching the idea of a sequel:

"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. 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."

We're just glad that the directing duo is smart enough to not just pump up the action, and they want to stay true to the character and story. As for whether or not Reeves is up for another outing as John Wick, Stahelski says, "If we could work with Keanu Reeves for ten movies you’d have a really cool career." Considering how much people loved John Wick, we're betting Reeves would be down for more action, but that's only if the script is up to par. Remember, Reeves didn't want anything to do with Speed 2: Cruise Control, which was probably a pretty smart decision. Stay tuned to see if John Wick 2 ends up happening.

    I have a question for the editors on the site, why hasn't the teaser trailer for the Marvel Netflix Daredevil series been posted on here? I know this site mainly focuses on movie news and movie trailers but am often seeing many short films and documentaries apart from that. I know the series is being shown on Netflix but I think it is quite relevant enough to be on here. I am kind of disappointed since this is my favorite site to go on for this type of news and I had to browse through multiple other sites just to know it was online.

      Like you said, it's not a movie. Follow The writers on Twitter if you want their opinions on tv.

        Thank you for being very arrogant and entirely missing the point of what am saying, by the way Netflix is not TV. It's a digital medium of entertainment meaning it expands beyond TV. Daredevil being in production as a Netflix original series substantially counts as being a movie completely even though it is broken into different episodes like a television series which it is not. And what about like I said, it's not movie because I don't only see movie news or movie trailers being posted onto this website. Something like a Netflix original series should definitely count as something being relevant on here.
