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.’

Russian President Vladimir Putin warned Wednesday that Russia will target the U.S. with new weapons should Washington decide to deploy intermediate-range ballistic missiles (ICBMs) to Europe following the recent death of a Cold War-era arms control agreement, according to multiple reports.
He threatened to target not only the host countries where U.S. missiles might be stationed but also decision-making centers in the U.S.
