John Wick: Chapter 2 will open in cinemas worldwide starting today. The actor is already looking forward to playing the role of the titular assassin for the third time. Here is what he has to say.
John Wick 3 Updates
As early as now, John Wick: Chapter 2 is already earning praises from movie critics. When it opens this weekend, it is also expected to be a box office success. That said, a third movie is already guaranteed.
“I love the character and the world,” Reeves told EW. Ever so humble, the 52-year-old talked about the franchise. According to him, making a follow-up will still depend on the audience’s reaction to the second movie. He added, “[i]f they enjoy what we did – and hopefully they do, fingers-crossed, I really dig it – but if they do enjoy it, then I’ll have the chance to continue the story of the character and the world.”
Reeves is not the only one who is set to making John Wick 3. Back in October 2016, director Chad Stahelski shared some hints at the New York Comic-Con. According to Collider, the studio behind the movie already asked him to come up with an idea for the follow-up. He teased fans that Winston (Ian McShane) and Lance Reddick (Hotel Manager Charon) will be a big part of the next movie. “We’ve got some ideas,” he stated.
