The hype train for John Wick: Chapter 2 is collecting up steam after the end of the week introduced the appearance of the 1st official trailer for the upcoming action follow up. Establishing Keanu Reeves‘ cutthroat assassin against newcomers like Common (who will play another expert killer-for-hire), Ruby Rose and Laurence Fishburne along with coming back cast like Ian McShane, so far, John Wick 2 looks to be shaping up rather swimmingly. Director Chad Stahelski, who previously worked with Fishburne and Reeves on the Matrix trilogy as a stunt coordinator, is no unfamiliar to sequels, but with normally high expectations and an intense connection to the original film, he no doubt is committed to making the follow up as high-octane as the first.

“The studio has asked us to put our heads together and see if we can come up with something. Winston’s [McShane] is a big part of the next one, so is Lance Reddick. We’ve got some ideas.”

Reddick and McShane, both stylish, consisting men of the Continental, have yet to get in on any serious action in the series, as they have stayed mostly on the sidelines. “Winston is busy running the hotel!” McShane described with a good laugh during this weekend’s New York Comic-Con board.

But before John Wick 3 takes off, we have got John Wick 2 on the horizon. So what can we anticipate from the upcoming sequel? Just because it is been a while since we have seen John Wick does not mean much time has passed in the world of the killer with a heart of gold.
“When it came to coming up with a story idea, we had like ten bad ideas, and they we were like, ‘f**k it,’ what would have just happened the next day. Once we stopped worrying about ourselves, it was fun. Is it as good as the first one? I don’t know, that’s personal opinion. Did we go better in some ways? Yes. Did we explore the character more? Yes. It’s better, I think, technically. Is the enjoyment better? Yes, it’s there, but it’s completely different.”
Ruby Rose, who had the Internet buzzing after her appearance on Orange is the New Black last year, has quickly converted to action, set to appear in xXx: The Return of Xander Cage, Resident Evil: The Final Chapter and John Wick: Chapter 2 all in the coming year. Discussing on her personality, Stahelski revealed:
“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.”
