LIONSGATE RELOADS “JOHN WICK 2”
Keanu Reeves, Directors David Leitch and Chad Stahelski Return

SANTA MONICA, Calif, May 4, 2015 – Lionsgate (NYSE: LGF) has confirmed plans to produce a sequel to 2014’s critically-acclaimed breakout hit ‘JOHN WICK’, it was announced today by Rob Friedman and Patrick Wachsberger, Co-Chairmen of the Theatrical Motion Pictures Group. Keanu Reeves along with directors David Leitch and Chad Stahelski as well as screenwriter, Derek Kolstad are set to return for the sequel. The film will be released through Lionsgate’s Summit Entertainment and will be produced by Thunder Road’s Basil Iwanyk, who produced the first film.
In the follow up to last year’s adrenaline-fueled revenge and redemption thriller, legendary hit man ‘John Wick’ is back. In today’s press release Jason Constantine, President of Acquisitions and Co-Productions had this to say about the project.

“With such tremendous fan and critical support for ‘John Wick,’ we knew that there was still so much more of this story to tell… 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.”

As of now were not sure who will be distributing highly anticipated action-thriller or when exactly it will be hitting the theaters. What we do know is that do the Lionsgate International will be selling the picture internationally at the upcoming Cannes Film Market. Jason Constantine and Eda Kowan at Lionsgate will oversee the project on behalf of the studio.

Although we don’t have a lot of details at the moment, I think it’s pretty fair to say everyone here at Ageofthenerd is pretty pumped to find out that ‘John Wick’ confirmed for sequel and will be back in theaters kicking @ss sooner than we thought. Are you as excited as I am right now? Let us know how you feel in the comments below!
