Keanu Reeves talks cool action scenes with Scott Adkins
Keanu Reeves also spoke at the SXSW and was asked about Constantine and the Ballerina spinoff and recently spoke with Collider about putting the cool action sequences together with Scott Adkins where per the above poster, Adkins is put in a fat suit.
“Well, you’re dealing with space and also you’re dealing on the strength of the people who are in the background in the sense of committing to it. Like, they had to keep dancing or be in the moment and kind of just ignore that fight scene that’s going on around you and in front of you. So that kind of cooperation, keeping the moment alive, and feeling authentic. So it’s really just practice, run-throughs, people getting used to the action around them,” said Reeves.
Reeves continued, “Actually, [director ]Chad [Stahelski] had gotten professional dancers and seated them throughout the background, so there [were] people who knew their bodies and movement and spatial relationships. And so these pods, I think, made this tertiary, connective world that I could weave, and Scott Adkins and I could weave through, as well as the other stunt performers. By the way, Scott disappears in that suit. It’s crazy.”
