‘John Wick’ is well on its way to become a trilogy according to director Chad Stahelski, who has confirmed a third film before the second is even out.
Keanu Reeves’ 2015 cult favourite is already has a sequel in the works, set for release early next year.
Speaking to Collider at New York Comic Con this past weekend, Stahelski said: “The studio has asked us to put our heads together and see if we can come up with something.
“Winston [Ian McShane’s character] is a big part of the next one, so is Lance Reddick[’s character Charon]. We’ve got some ideas.”
The first full trailer for 'John Wick: Chapter 2’ was released over the weekend, and as sequels to action movies starring actors whose best days many assumed were behind them go, it looks very good.
We’re looking at you 'Taken 2’.
Stahelski went on to discuss (quite frankly) the upcoming sequel, saying: "When it came to coming up with a story idea, we had like ten bad ideas, and they we were like, ‘f**k it,’ what would have just happened the next day.
"Once we stopped worrying about ourselves, it was fun. Is it as good as the first one? I don’t know, that’s personal opinion. Did we go better in some ways? Yes. Did we explore the character more? Yes. It’s better, I think, technically. Is the enjoyment better? Yes, it’s there, but it’s completely different.”
'John Wick: Chapter 2’ will be released on 17 February 2017.
