After the success of their first outing, John Wick, the two stuntmen turned directors Chad Stahelski and David Leitch are in demand with talk of Cowboy Ninja Viking being their next project… but the directors told Movies.com that they are already working on a sequel to their stylistic revenge flick.
“We’re in development right now,” Stahelski said. “We have ideas for days and without blinking twice we know we can outdo the action from the original. It’s the matter of story and how much you like the character. That’s always the most important. If there’s great action but you have a character that no one likes and doesn’t have charisma you’re not going to watch it. Look at any great action star, whether it’s Harrison Ford or Liam Neeson or Robert Downey Jr., pick a name, you love the guy first. Good action, bad action, you just love them in action. So we want to make sure we have a story and a character that everybody loves and then we’ll dress it with action that we promise will be awesome.”
They didn’t say if Keanu Reeves would return for the sequel but they would like him to.
John Wick is available now on Bluray / DVD.
