John Wick sequel has a title and release date!
In October 2014, the world was introduced to retired hitman John Wick. He wasn't just any hitman. He was the hitman you send to kill the Boogeyman. Now, that is one man you don't want to run into. Wick proved to be a highly efficient killer with dogged determination.
Genre fans liked what they saw and the film went on to gross $86 million at the world wide box office and became a huge hit on the home video market. When a film such as this achieves a certain level of success a sequel seems like a logical step in the right direction.
Fans can rest easy knowing that a sequel was green lit and that Lionsgate will be releasing the sequel, titled John Wick - Chapter Two, in theatres on February 10, 2017.
Besides Reeves, returning cast members include Ian McShane, John Leguizamo, Lance Reddick, Tom Sadowski and Bridget Moynahan. Stepping into WIck's path for the sequel are Laurence Fishburne, Ruby Rose, Riccardo Scamarcio, Peter Stormare and Common appears as the villain. Yup, Morpheus and Neo are together again. Whoa!
John Wick: Chapter Two is being directed by Chad Stahelski, who co-directed the first film. Screenwriter Derek Kolstad has penned the sequel which appears to take place in Rome, Italy.
