This video by SMG Celeb is a compilation of some exciting behind-the-scenes footage of Keanu Reeves rehearsing a few action takes for the movie John Wick: Chapter 2.
Reeves has a lot of experience doing action sequences, having been in the Hollywood business for more than three decades. This Canadian actor, producer, director, and musician has earned critical acclaim for his work. He is probably best known for his starring role as Neo in The Matrix Trilogy. His acting has garnered several awards including a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. According to The New York Times, he is a versatile actor who displays considerable discipline and range.
In the BTS footage, we can see that the veteran actor is back to fighting basics, rehearsing his moves with the other actors, and coordinating his takedown of some “thugs”. And once he has all the moves down, the 51-year-old star will prove that he still has some speed in him. It’s also cool to see the steamy streets of Chinatown in Manhattan, even if it’s clear that the gunshot effects will be added in post-production.
Fans of the original John Wick should know that there will be a lot more killing in the sequel to the 2014 film John Wick. The premise of the movies is that a legendary hitman named John Wick is forced to return from retirement by a former associate plotting to seize control of an international assassins’ guild. Because he is bound by a blood oath to help him, John travels to Rome, where he squares off against some of the world’s deadliest killers.
John Wick: Chapter 2 is an upcoming American action thriller film directed by Chad Stahelski and written by Derek Kolstad. Aside from Keanu Reeves, the film stars Ruby Rose, Bridget Moynahan, Ian McShane, and John Leguizamo. The movie is set to be released on February 10, 2017.
