The man. The myth. The legend. John Wick is back -- because, as Laurence Fishburne tells Keanu Reeves in the "John Wick: Chapter 2" trailer, he's not very good at retiring. Reeves's assassin has a lot of work ahead of him, not only in the 2017 sequel but in "John Wick: Chapter 3," which is already in the works.
Director Chad Stahelski talked to Collider at New York Comic Con, revealing some details about what's ahead in this movie and the third. "Orange Is the New Black" star Ruby Rose is part of the new cast, and you can see her battling Wick in the trailer. Apparently she will be more seen than heard in Chapter 2.
"I don't know if she was expecting 'Wick' to be as kooky as it really is, but she's mute in the movie, she does the whole thing in sign language. She was nervous for the first couple days, and then she just went for it."
Sounds like everyone went for it enough for Lionsgate to start planning a third film. As Stahelski told Collider:
"The studio has asked us to put our heads together and see if we can come up with something. Winston [played by Ian McShane] is a big part of the next one, so is Lance Reddick [who plays Charon]. We've got some ideas."
Winston is the owner of the Continental Hotel, showcased in the original film, with Charon as the concierge. We'd never say no to more screen time for McShane and Reddick, who are both billed as returning in Chapter 2. The sequel's plot forces Wick out of retirement (and over to Rome) to help a former associate seize control of a shadowy international assassins's guild.
Check out the new trailer:
"John Wick: Chapter 2" is scheduled for release February 10, 2017.
