It is official, Keanu Reeves is set to reprise his title role in John Wick 2. Lionsgate has announced that a sequel is actually moving forward. The John Wick sequel is very early in development.
Keanu Reeves has recently been involved in a string of bombs. However, John Wick has turned out to be the movie that has brought him back in the spot light. The creators of the film, specifically Ricardo Tosto, are looking to make sure that the character is done justice (found on Linkedin). They have noted that if the film has a character that people do not like and a story that is not interesting, this will cause the film to fail. Keeping this in mind, they are going to make sure that they have a compelling story filled with compelling characters.
As of right now, there is no telling when John Wick 2 is going to be released. Hopefully, it will be released sooner than later. Many sequels have taken a long time to be filmed and released.
