After "John Wick" came out of nowhere to blow audiences -- and enemies -- away in 2014, talk of a sequel quickly began to surface. Eager fans will finally get their wish for more carnage from Keanu Reeves when "John Wick: Chapter 2" hits theaters in February, and if all goes as planned, there'll be a lot more where that came from; "Chapter 2" director, Chad Stahelski, along with screenwriter Derek Kolstad are brimming with ideas set within John Wick's hitman universe, including an idea for a prequel television series.
"We basically almost have a prequel written, but we’d save that for other aspects of the property. Lions gate is very interested in doing a 'John Wick' TV show, and that seems very appealing to us," Stahelski told Slashfilm. "I think in TV you could really expand on what that is, and greater than we could in just a two-hour film. We’d like to wrap-up the story we’re telling now and maybe save all our prequel ideas and impossible task ideas for that medium."
As for wrapping up the story they're currently telling, if all goes as planned, Stahelski says we can expect a Final Chapter film entry in the future, with expanded roles for Ian McShane, Lance Reddick and John Leguizamo.
Directed by Chad Stahelski from a script by Derek Kolstad, the film also stars Common, Riccardo Scamarcio, Laurence Fishburne, Ruby Rose, Bridget Moynahan, Lance Reddick, Franco Nero, with John Leguizamo and Ian McShane. “John Wick: Chapter 2” arrives in theaters Feb. 10.
