Looks like action sequel ‘John Wick Chapter 2’ will pay homage to one of the most memorable sequences from one of the greatest action movies ever made.
Empire have a new interview with star Keanu Reeves and director Chad Stahelski, along with two new stills from the upcoming film, one of which is in a setting not unlike that of the final showdown in Bruce Lee classic ‘Enter the Dragon.’
We see a hall of mirrors, in which new villains Riccardo Scamarcio and Ruby Rose stroll down a staircase in sharp suits with guns drawn… which, let’s face it, probably means Reeves’ titular hitman is likely to shoot them both without breaking a sweat (but who knows?)
Nor is the similarity to Bruce Lee’s 1973 hit in any way an accident, as Reeves explains:
“The mirror room was Chad’s idea. 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.”
Reeves also offers up an intriguing culinary description of how ‘John Wick Chapter 2’ will compare to the action-packed 2014 original: “It’s like going back to your favourite restaurant but this time, instead of getting to the fillet, you’re getting the porterhouse.”
No doubt most of us will happily settle for a bucket of popcorn when ‘John Wick Chapter 2’ hits UK cinemas on 17 February 2017.
