Lionsgate has debuted new images from John Wick 2 featuring Keanu Reeves and more. Take a look at all the images and the recent trailer below.
“The mirror room was Chad’s idea,” Keanu Reeves told Empire. “It’s his homage to Bruce Lee at the end of Enter The Dragon. The whole installation is a maze of mirrors where guys can pop out and disappear. It’s very cool and a lot of fun to fight in.”
“You go watch any of the great Hong Kong guys,” director Chad Stahelsk said about the martial arts action in the film. “[You’re watching] wider shots; you’re watching an extremely talented individual. If you’re using fast editing to hide things, I call bullshit. That’s cheating. Luckily, we have a cast member that can do it. Keanu’s been doing martial arts for 25 years. He’s been trained by us, he’s been trained by Yuen Wo Ping. He’s been trained by Chen Yen.”
“It’s like going back to your favourite restaurant but this time, instead of getting to the fillet, you’re getting the porterhouse,” Reeves added about John Wick 2.
John Wick: Chapter Two has a February 10, 2017 release directed by Chad Stahelski also starring Laurence Fishburne, Ian McShane, Lance Reddick, John Leguizamo, Common, Peter Stormare, Ruby Rose, Bridget Moynahan and David Patrick Kelly.
Keanu Reeves returns in the sequel to the 2014 hit as legendary hitman John Wick who is forced to back out of retirement by a former associate plotting to seize control of a shadowy international assassins’ guild. Bound by a blood oath to help him, John travels to Rome where he squares off against some of the world’s deadliest killers. Lionsgate’s “John Wick: Chapter 2” arriving in theaters on February 10, 2017.
