Below, Stahelski shares some new details on the John Wick TV show.

John Wick and its sequel, John Wick: Chapter 2 were unexpected critical and box office hits, so naturally, people keep asking director Chad Stahelski if we’re going back to the wild and violent world of John Wick. And Stahelski confirms, yeah, he’s thinking we’ll go back. (Don’t hate me, I know the joke is bad.)

The stuntman-turned-director gave an update on the status of the third movie in what he hopes will be a trilogy, John Wick: Chapter 3, as well as the possibility of expanding the underground assassin world seen in the movies through a television series.

Keanu Reeves in John Wick Chapter 2

John Wick: Chapter 2 didn’t disappoint. It was pretty much everything one could want and more from the sequel, which grossed almost double what the first movie made at the worldwide box-office. Following the all-around huge success, Keanu Reeves will be back as the dog-friendly assassin. If you’re wondering exactly when Reeves will return as the character, according to director Chad Stahelski, says that cameras could begin rolling later this year or early next year.

Below, check out Stahelski’s latest comments on the sequel.

John Wick 3

After the success of John Wick: Chapter Two, it’s fair to say more than a few people are already anticipating John Wick: Chapter 3. Director Chad Stahelski, writer Derek Kolstad, and Keanu Reeves have expressed the desire to return their glossy and violent world of assassins. They’ve shared ideas for where they’d like to see Mr. Wick go next, including Tokyo, Jerusalem, or some other part of the world.

Reeves recently spitballed a few more ideas for John Wick 3. Below, read Keanu Reeves’ John Wick 3 idea and learn where he wants to take the action franchise.

John Wick and John Wick: Chapter 2 aren’t just good action movies – they’re perfect action movies. And they’re more than that – they’re great movies, filled with character and humor and detail that rewards careful consideration and thought. They also feature Keanu Reeves shooting so many people in the face, but that’s just the appetizer. Come for the violence (and there’s plenty of that), but linger for two of the most magical and beautifully realized genre movies of all time.

So let’s take a deep dive into these movies and dissect them. Let’s figure out what makes these movies so good and how they utilize Reeves so well, and explore their debt to everything from silent comedies to ancient mythology. Because the John Wick movies aren’t just a ton of fun – they’re art.

Spoilers for both movies lie ahead.

‘John Wick 3’: Everything We Know So Far

John Wick 2 Shoot Date

Like many of you, John Wick kicked my ass when it was released in 2014. I went into John Wick: Chapter 2 expecting to be amazed with the fight scenes (which I was), but I has not anticipated that I would walk out of the theater talking about the worldbuilding of this new film. John Wick 3 is already in development, and I’m very excited to see more chapters in this world.

Lets take a look at what may await us in John Wick: Chapter 3, pieced together from interview comments from director Chad Stahelski, screenwriter Derek Kolstad, actor Keanu Reeves, and more.

John Wick 2 Super Bowl Spot

I’m certain J.J. Perry can kill me. Not just because he’s an intense, athletic man who worked as the stunt coordinator on John Wick: Chapter 2, a movie that is all about Keanu Reeves killing every single bad guy unfortunate enough to stand in the way of his fists and bullets. I know this because during the course of our interview, he tells me exactly how he’d kill me, using the objects in the room, if necessary.

I’m also certain that director Chad Stahelksi could kill me, but he’s a bit too polite, a bit too mild-mannered, to give me the gory details. After all, he was a stunt performer and stunt coordinator before he helmed both John Wick movies. He even worked as Keanu Reeves’ stunt double on The Matrix, laying the groundwork for their current collaboration.

John Wick: Chapter 2 is everything you want in a John Wick sequel: it’s crazier, funnier, bloodier, and more packed with bizarre, wonderful little details. And because we planned for this interview with Stahelski and Perry to go up after the film’s release, we were able to delve into all kinds of spoilers.

After seeing John Wick: Chapter 2 twice, I’ve settled on the opinion that director Chad Stahelski should be allowed to whatever hell we wants next (provided that he also find time for John Wick: Chapter 3, of course). Both John Wick movies are among the freshest, funniest, and most unique American action films to come around in quite sometime – I’m pretty much in awe of them. So when Stahelski talks about dreaming of making a James Bond movie, I find myself snapping to attention and asking which mountain I can help move to make that happen.

Chad Stahelski interview

John Wick: Chapter 2 isn’t a sequel that delivers more of the same. There are familiarities, but it’s more like the same engine in a slightly bigger, more stylish, and more aggressive car. The simplicity of the first movie remains, but the titular character finds himself in a larger and more dangerous world this time. The world, which takes a few ideas from Arthurian mythology, grows along with John Wick in the sequel.

Director Chad Stahelski, who co-directed the first movie with the uncredited David Leitch (Deadpool 2), shows audiences a different side of the character, while also delivering on the quality action sequences audiences now expect from a John Wick film. The director ups the stakes and increases the scale in the sequel without ever abandoning the titular character’s arc during all the beautifully orchestrated madness.

We recently spoke with the 87eleven co-founder at the press day for the sequel. We discussed finding the right story to tell, the film’s opening and closing action scenes, the influence of Buster Keaton, workshopping scenes with Keanu Reeves, and more with the filmmaker. Below, read our Chad Stahelski interview.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

the batman director

Yesterday, Ben Affleck stepped down from directing The Batman. One day, someone is going to write a book explaining exactly what was going on behind-the-scenes at Warner Bros. that led to this revolving door of filmmakers on all of their projects. We’ll surely know someday. But not today.

So today is a day of speculation. As Matt Reeves and Mat Ross emerge as apparent frontrunners, it’s time to do that thing where we make a list of people who should direct the next Batman movie. Some of these names are totally plausible. Some are wishful thinking. Others are here just because the thought of them directing a big-budget superhero movie makes me giggle uncontrollably. Most of all, this an excuse for us to just goof off and daydream while Warner Bros. figures everything out.
