Keanu Reeves is set to reprise his role as hired-gun-turned-puppy-owner in a sequel to this year’s surprise box-office smash John Wick.
It’s been rumoured for a while, with the relatively small budget proving hugely profitable for studio Lionsgate. Strong ticket sales have been boosted by positive word of mouth, the combination of black humour and stylised violence playing to its leading man’s strengths.
At the UK premiere, Reeves said that he would be keen to return for more although that it depended on how the film did commercially. He also confirmed ongoing talks for the third Bill and Ted film, so a timescale for either sequel seems a while off being announced.
Lionsgate also confirmed co-directors David Leitch and Chad Stahelski will return as will screenwriter Derek Kolstad.
No official word yet on the puppy though.
