In a press release for the forthcoming adaptation of Outlaws Inc., it seems as though Fundamental Films inadvertently revealed when John Wick 2 will start filming.
“Thunder Road’s upcoming releases include Sicario directed by Denis Villeneuve starring Benicio Del Toro, Emily Blunt, and Josh Brolin, and the tent pole film Gods of Egypt for Summit/Lionsgate directed by Alex Proyas. Also upcoming is a sequel to the hit actioner John Wick starring Keanu Reeves which begins shooting this Fall,” says a press release.
John Wick starred Keanu Reeves, directed by David Leitch and Chad Stahelski and written by Derek Kolstad, all of whom will return for the sequel.
John Wick stars Reeves as the titular hitman, looking for revenge and redemption.
“With such tremendous fan and critical support for ‘John Wick,’ we knew that there was still so much more of this story to tell,” said Jason Constantine, President of Acquisitions and Co-Productions in a press release. “We are thrilled that Keanu, David and Chad have re-teamed with us and promise to bring audiences even more excitement the second time around.”
Jason Constantine and Eda Kowan will oversee the project on behalf of Lionsgate. Lionsgate International will be selling the picture internationally at the upcoming Cannes Film Market.
