John Wick: Chapter 2 is still to hit theaters and yet a third film in the franchise is already in the works.
Director Chad Stahelski confirmed that the John Wick series will be a trilogy. He told Collider at New York Comic Con:
“The studio has asked us to put our heads together and see if we can come up with something.
“Winston [Ian McShane’s character] is a big part of the next one, so is Lance Reddick[’s character Charon]. We’ve got some ideas.”
Stahelski then spoke of the upcoming sequel:
“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.”
John Wick: Chapter 2 is released on 17 February 2017 and you can see the trailer below:
