I’ve been taking it for granted that John Wick 2 would just be called John Wick 2. This doesn’t seem like the kind of franchise that needs any fancy title business. Let’s just get to the head-shooting.
But I was wrong. According to Exhibitor Relations, John Wick 2 will actually go by the title John Wick: Chapter Two, probably because he’s such a big reader of books on how to shoot people in the head. Furthermore, the film will come out February 10, 2017. That means we’ll be watching Keanu Reeves kicking ass all over the place in less than a year.
And I do mean all over the place. While pretty much every character from John Wick is returning, a lot of the movie will take place in Europe. New characters will be played by Laurence Fishburne, Peter Stormare, Ruby Rose, and Common. We’ll be entering a much bigger assassin world, and I cannot wait to see how it all goes down.
