Chad Stahelski Hopes to Film ‘John Wick 3’ This Year
Because John Wick is terrible at retiring (and because Chapter 2 left him in quite a sticky situation that whole worldwide bounty thing and all), director Chad Stahelski is already working on the script for a third movie, and he’s very excited about all the possibilities. Wick is not part of a franchise, so all the series really depends on is Keanu Reeves’ availability and the ability of the writers and director to come up with another idea.

In 2014, a pair of veteran stunt coordinators introduced the world to John Wick, a former assassin who rages out of retirement to seek revenge on the man who killed his puppy and stole his car. With action as sharp and seemingly seamless as the impeccable suits worn by its eponymous protagonist, John Wick reinvigorated a genre bloated with CGI and dominated by implausibly acrobatic vehicles. In 2017, Keanu Reeves is back with John Wick: Chapter 2, a righteous follow-up that’s bigger and maybe not better, but just as good as its predecessor.

When actors move behind the camera, they bring a new perspective to the directing process, one that’s often more character-driven; more verbose than visual. In 2014, we experienced what happens when a stunt coordinator moves behind the camera, and the result was a glorious action film as sharp as its titular protagonist. Chad Stahelski and David Leitch pumped decades of stunt experience into John Wick, which cast the immortal Keanu Reeves as a would-be retired assassin out for revenge. Two years later, Stahelski took on the second chapter of John Wick’s journey on his own, delivering a fitting follow-up that’s just as lit as its predecessor.

There are action movies, and there are action movies. And then there are movies that take car chase setpieces and fighting choreography to an entirely new level, creating wild, incredible scenarios that are even more astounding for their realism. That’s John Wick, and in a new featurette, Keanu Reeves explains how he and his stunt coordinators created their special brand of “gun-fu” for the upcoming John Wick: Chapter 2.

John Wick directing duo Chad Stahelski and David Leitch are gradually taking over Hollywood’s action films, becoming two of the most wanted names in the industry. When Tim Miller vacated the director’s chair on Deadpool 2, there was only one correct solution: Hire one of the John Wick guys. Leitch landed that gig, which leaves Stahelski free to take on another potential blockbuster — the long-long-long-developing Highlander reboot.

Ever since Chad Stahelski and David Leitch made their directorial debut with John Wick, the stunt coordinators have become two of Hollywood’s most exciting new action filmmakers. After delivering their breakout hit in 2013, the duo decided to divide and conquer, with Stahelski on John Wick: Chapter 2 and Leitch on the upcoming Charlize Theron thriller The Coldest City. While Leitch is in the running to direct Deadpool 2, Stahelski is lining up another project, uniting three of the most badass martial arts actors on the planet for one sure-to-be-epic action flick.

The much-anticipated follow-up to Keanu Reeves’ action-packed John Wick, John Wick: Chapter 2 has some big shoes to fill. The first John Wick was a welcome surprise: an action-thriller with some masterful stuntwork and gun handling directed by an actual stuntman, about a former assassin who goes on a killing rampage to avenge his dog was a delicious stew of an action movie. The sequel picks up just a short time after the first leaves off, and we see Wick heading to Rome and ready to take out some more bad guys. Although sequels are always chancy prospects, director Chad Stahelski is optimistic about the next chapter living up to the first.
