We May Soon Find Ourselves In JOHN WICK Movie Heaven

Sure, why not turn this into a franchise? Awesome things are awesome.

John Wick is about as good as modern action movies get. And as a modern action movie fan, I can’t help but hope they make more. It wasn’t something I thought about much, however, because I assumed the film’s reach did not extend beyond movie nerds and action fans.

Looks like I was wrong. According to Variety, Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer had this to say during a studio earnings call, which I missed because I was in the bathroom:

We see ‘John Wick’ as a multiple-title action franchise.

Those are lovely words. But, of course, they are just words. Nevertheless, I love watching Keanu Reeves shoot fools in the head just as much as I love the weird assassin culture the first film built. I have no problem with the idea of spending more time at the Continental.

Feltheimer isn’t the only one who wants to see this happen either. Earlier this week, Meredith posted a story in which Chad Stahelski and David Leitch discussed their plans for a sequel. Stahelski had this to say:

We have ideas for days and without blinking twice we know we can outdo the action from the original. 

He actually said a bit more, but that’s the super-duper exciting part. So how many John Wick movies would you like to see? How many pets can this guy go through in one lifetime?
