John Wick was a movie that for me had a simple concept but it managed to keep itself awesome. It’s one of my favorite movies of 2014, just a great action film. The directors Chad Stahelski and David Leitch, who also coordinated stunts for the Matrix, The Hunger Games and more, told to Movies.com that they have some ideas for a sequel and they’re writing a screenplay. Here’s what they told to the site:
“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.”
People write scripts all the time, there’s no word of Keanu Reeves returning so this could mean nothing. However, John Wick was a great movie that is pretty much liked by everyone. It’s fun. Fun is good. I really hope they can pull this off and deliver another amazing action flick just like the original John Wick.
