Keanu Reeves is an international man of mystery. His comedy days long behind him, he is known for being a very dark and brooding actor. Yet somehow he can be dark and brooding and still come out with the gem that was the completely insane John Wick. We know have some new images of Reeves in full brooding in the upcoming sequel, John Wick: Chapter 2.
If you missed out on John Wick then you really did miss out. John Wick features Keanu Reeves as the titular John who, stay with me, has his puppy killed by gangster so he proceeds to shoot up nightclubs in a blazing vengeful rampage for the dog. I’m being completely serious, although to be fair I’m OK with Reeves killing puppy-killers.
After wiping out nearly every Russian gangster in New York the first time round, we are now having Reeves return to shoot up even more nightclubs. The images we have here confirm this as we see John Wick in a nightclub but also a very nice shot of him on Brooklyn Bridge with the pitbull dog he adopted in the previous movie all grown up.
The nightclub shot features a lot of the blues and purples we saw in the previous film which isn’t surprising as director Chad Stahelski is returning to the helm. There’s also going to be a few costume changes here too as in the club Reeves is donning a very sharp black suit but then a grimy white shirt in the Brooklyn Bridge shot.
Joining Reeves here will be returning co-stars John Leguizmo, Ian McShane, Bridget Moynahan and Lance Reddick. But we’ll also be seeing the brand new faces of Ruby Rose (Orange is the New Black), Laurence Fishburne (The Matrix) and Common (Suicide Squad). The real question is that of this impressive casting who will walk away alive as very few people did last time. Let’s hope no one is trying to kidnap the pitbull.
John Wick: Chapter 2 is due to shoot it’s way on screens on 17th February 2017.
