It’s Official: Keanu Reeves to Return for John Wick 2!
Lionsgate has officially confirmed today that it plans to produce a sequel to 2014’s critically-acclaimed revenge thriller John Wick. Keanu Reeves will return as Wick along with directors David Leitch and Chad Stahelski and screenwriter, Derek Kolstad. John Wick 2 will be released through Lionsgate’s Summit Entertainment and will be produced by Thunder Road’s Basil Iwanyk, who produced the first film.
“With such tremendous fan and critical support for ‘John Wick,’ we knew that there was still so much more of this story to tell,” says Jason Constantine, President of Acquisitions and Co-Productions. “We are thrilled that Keanu, David and Chad have re-teamed with us and promise to bring audiences even more excitement the second time around.”
Produced on a modest $20 million budget, John Wick earned more than $78 million at the worldwide box office.
“In the follow up to last year’s adrenaline-fueled revenge and redemption thriller,” reads the sequel’s temporarily minimal plot synopsis, “legendary hit man John Wick is back.”
Jason Constantine and Eda Kowan at Lionsgate will oversee the project on behalf of the studio. Lionsgate International will be selling the picture internationally at the upcoming Cannes Film Market.
Last year, ComingSoon.net had the opportunity to visit Leitch and Stahelski at their 87Eleven Action Design studio. Check out our full report right here, including a choreographed John Wick stunt video.
Welcome to the answer to “What happens after Ultraduck?”.
I will be posting short stories in my Tumblr hopefully every 2 or 3 weeks, leading up to what will be my next book. As you guessed, it’s about the people that got inspired by Ultraduck, and decided to go out and become superheroes themselves.
He knocks on the door and it’s thrown open a moment later. Ellie stands there, hands on her hips as she looks up at him with thunder in her eyes, all beautiful fury. He should be used to it by now, but he’s not.

These are the top-grossing films of 2014. At No. 16, Interstellar is the only film on that list that isn’t a sequel, remake, or adaptation. … While we’ve been embracing sequels and remakes since the days of Ben-Hur, anyone who has been sentient for the last two decades has seen this slow trickle turn into a Biblical splooge of eternal storytelling. So, how do we fix Hollywood? As an Associate of Science who majored in film studies before spending a decade bitterly watching and criticizing the work of others, I’ve decided to take on the task. My solution isn’t to abolish sequels, remakes, and adaptations – but rather to assert a set of rules for them that would, in time, bring us back to the good ol’ heyday of the 1980s. You know, when we got real sequels.
