Hollywood actor Keanu Reeves is no stranger to working hard when it comes to his film roles. For his hit fiction-action The Matrix films, he went to months of martial arts training to be equipped for the extensive stunt work. This time, the Canadian actor went through extensive gun training for the movie John Wick 2.
The former Men’s Fitness cover star practiced working on tactical gun range using actual weapons. His driving skills were also put to test with the film’s many driving stunts. Plus, a lot of time was spent with the stunt coordinator for the fight scenes.
Reeves is likely to be doing similar extensive training or more soon for the third installment of John Wick. Director Chad Stahelski says the story is in the works. Derek Kolstad, writer for the first two films, is confirmed to be writing for the third one.
“We’re going to put in something about where John comes from, and where he wants to go. I don’t want to say too much more, but it will be a nice completion to Mr. Wick’s journey,” Stahelski said.
Does this mean that John Wick 3 will be the last of the film series? Nothing is confirmed as of this time. The only thing we’re certain is we’re seeing intense action scenes from Keanu Reeves for John Wick 2.
