Keanu Reeves, Hollywood’s beloved time-travelling stoner turned-incognito FBI agent surfer, is ready to reprise his role as the dapper yet furious assassin in the third installment of the ‘John Wick’ franchise.


Defined by it’s stylized violence, visceral mayhem, and a veritable arsenal of sleek firearms, the breakout success of the first ‘John Wick’ was followed by the far more ridiculous ‘John Wick: Chapter 2,’ which debuted earlier this year.

‘Chapter 2’ director Chad Stahelski told Collider that while the script is still in development, filming could start as early as this year — or the beginning of next year. Really, it just depends on “how fast can we get our shit together,” Stahelski said during the May 24 interview.

Stahelski is currently on hand as a prep director, but there’s a good chance that he’ll be holding the reins of the next film to feature the suit-sporting, gun-dancing, killing machine that is John Wick. It’s unclear what the third Wick film will entail, but according to the interview with Stahelski we’ll see more of the mysterious world of super assassins and murderers-for-hire paid in gold doubloons like M4-rocking buccaneers. Personally, I hope John Wick’s dog features prominently in the third installment.

Of course, Reeves will headline as the film’s namesake. The 52-year-old actor — yeah, he’s in his fucking 50’s — has gone to incredible lengths to train for the role, from martial arts, to running three-gun drills on the daily. By now, he’s probably as lethal as the hitman he plays on screen.

If you’re in need of a refresher for what ‘John Wick’ is all about, get your fix with the trailer for ‘John Wick: Chapter 2.’

Despite what you may have heard, the Army has not declared war on mustaches.

The Army W.T.F! Moments Facebook page on Monday posted a memo written by a 3rd Infantry Division company commander telling his soldiers that only the fittest among them will be allowed to sprout facial hair under their warrior nostrils.

"During my tenure at Battle Company, I have noticed a direct correlation between mustaches and a lack of physical fitness," the memo says. "In an effort to increase the physical fitness of Battle Company, mustaches will not be authorized for any soldier earning less than a 300 on the APFT [Army Physical Fitness Test]."
