Chad Stahelski interview

The summer movie season will remain abuzz after the triumphant arrival of John Wick: Chapter Three – Parabellum. If ever a movie could be a mic drop, it’s the latest chapter of everybody’s new favorite killing machine and dog enthusiast, John Wick. The sequel has it all, starting with another performance from Keanu Reeves that leaves a big fat mark on pop culture.

Director Chad Stahelski attributes the success of the franchise to Reeves, whom he’s been working with ever since The Matrix. When Stahelski says the actor is giving every frame his all in this movie, nobody could ever question that. Reeves brings a believability to the poetic and ridiculous action, a sincerity to the drama, and a powerful presence and sense of ownership to the role. In another actor’s hands, John Wick, as we’ve come to know and love him, wouldn’t be John Wick.

During our wide-ranging interview with Stahelski following the franchise’s biggest opening at the box-office yet, he told us why audiences connect with Reeves as Wick, how he always goes for beauty in his movies, how he shoots action, and more.

john wick 3 cats

The titular assassin of the upcoming John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum is a force of nature. Through the past two movies, he’s plowed through all manner of low-level thugs, assassins, and bosses of assassins. But there’s one thing that can stop John Wick in his tracks: cats. It’s well known that Keanu Reeves’ John Wick is a dog lover — the loss of his adorable puppy is what set him off on this three-film spanning blood-soaked path. But in John Wick 3 cats are what get the best of him, in an action sequence that was nearly derailed by stray cats, director Chad Stahelski revealed.

In the John Wick universe, the law of diminishing returns does not exist. Somehow, each new entry in the action franchise only ups its game, going bigger, bolder, and crazier.

the matrix reboot

Update: A representative for Chad Stahelski has reached out and let us know that the initial report was inaccurate.

When Warner Bros. announced that a reboot of The Matrix was in early stages of development, fans of the game-changing sci-fi action movie awoke from their stupor — only for excitement to abate when it was reported that the Wachowskis would not be involved. But The Matrix reboot may have gotten the filmmakers on board after all, according to John Wick 3 director and former Matrix stunt coordinator Chad Stahelski.

John Wick 3 Motorcycle Chase Featurette

John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum is only a couple short weeks away. And even though the final battle in Avengers: Endgame was truly something special to behold, we’re betting the Keanu Reeves sequel is going offer up something even more impressive in the action department.

A new John Wick 3 featurette takes a closer look at the promising motorcycle chase sequence in which our titular assassin is speeding away from some dangerous, armed killers across the Verrazzano Bridge that connects the New York City boroughs of Staten Island and Brooklyn. Making this chase even more interesting is that the killers chasing John Wick have swords. But it’s all good, because John Wick has at least one gun. Read More »

john wick chapter 3 dogs

One of the most entertaining moments of the kick-ass John Wick Chapter 3 – Parabellum trailer involves the dogs owned by Halle Berry‘s character getting in on the action. Dogs have always been a big part of this franchise, but this looks like the first entry in the series that allows the dogs to participate in some fighting. These aren’t your typical movie stunt-dogs, though. As director Chad Stahelski explains, the production created their own special breed of puppers by training them to have fun…attacking people.
