There’s just no retirement for ex-hitman John Wick. The much-anticipated John Wick: Chapter 2 is already set to hit theaters in a few months, but that probably won’t be the last time we see Keanu Reeves‘ title character back in action.
At New York Comic Con, director Chad Stahelski told Collider that he’s already been approached about coming up with a story for John Wick 3. “The studio has asked us to put our heads together and see if we can come up with something. Winston’s (Ian McShane) a big part of the next one, so is Lance Reddick. We’ve got some ideas.”
Considering that Winston is the owner of the Continental Hotel, and Reddick’s Charon is his concierge, we’re thinking that the Continental could be the major setting of John Wick 3. Or perhaps circumstances will force Winston and Charon out of the Continental, and even deeper into the world of Wick himself.
Stahelski also teased a bit of information about John Wick: Chapter 2, and indicated that it’ll pick up shortly after the events of the first film. “When it came to coming up with a story idea, we had like ten bad ideas, and they we were like…What would have happened the next day,” recalled Stahelski. “Once we stopped worrying about ourselves, it was fun…It’s better…but it’s completely different.”
John Wick: Chapter 2 will reunite Reeves with his Matrix co-star Laurence Fishburne, as they appear opposite, Common, Bridget Moynahan, John Leguizamo, and Ruby Rose. The mayhem begins again on Friday, February 10, 2017.
