The dog, Daisy, was the final gift from his recently-deceased wife, Helen ( Bridget Moynahan).  The film's development began in 2012. In May 2013, Reeves was cast as the titular character. Principal photography began September 25, 2013 and wrapped on December 20, 2013. John Wick: Chapter 2 (2017) Edit Forced to honor a debt from his past life, John Wick is sent to assassinate a target he has no wish to kill, then faces betrayal at the hands of his sponsor. The film was announced in February 2015, with principal photography beginning October 26, 2015. John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum (2019) Edit John Wick is on the run, being hunted with a $14 million (increased to $15 million later) open contract on his life for breaking a foundational rule: taking a life on Continental Hotel grounds. The victim, Santino D'Antonio ( Riccardo Scamarcio) was a member of the High Table - the organization then ordered the open contract. John should have already been executed but the Continental's manager, Winston ( Ian McShane), has given him a one-hour grace period before he is "excommunicado" –having his membership revoked, being banned from all services and cut off from other members. John uses favors and contacts accrued in his former life to stay alive as he fights his way out of New York City. In October 2016, Stahelski announced the development of the third film. The film began production in early 2018. Future Edit John Wick: Chapter 4 (2021) Edit In May 2019, prior to the release of John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum, Chad Stahelski confirmed on a Reddit "Ask Me Anything" thread that there has been a discussion for another film and that he would be involved with the project should the sequel be successful.  Keanu Reeves stated that he would continue making sequels, as long as the films are successful.  Lionsgate officially announced the film during John Wick 3 ' s opening week, with a scheduled release date of May 21, 2021.  Ballerina (TBA) Edit In July 2017, Lionsgate announced the development of a spin-off film titled Ballerina, with the intent to expand the franchise within the same fictional world. The story — written by Shay Hatten, Writer's Assistant for Team Downey — involves a young woman who is raised to be an assassin, pursuing revenge on the hit men who killed her family. Basil Iwanyk will serve as producer under his Thunder Road Films banner, along with Erica Lee.  In October 2019, Len Wiseman signed onto the project as director, with Keanu Reeves and Chad Stahelski serving as a producer and executive producer, respectively. The film will follow the same ballerina previously portrayed by Unity Phelan in John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum.   Television Edit The Continental (TBA) Edit In June 2017, it was announced that Chad Stahelski and writer Derek Kolstad were developing a television series for Lionsgate based on the characters and setting of the John Wick films, titled The Continental.  The series reportedly focuses on the hotel safe-haven for hit men and assassins, which features in the films. Later that year it was reported that Reeves would reprise his role as John Wick for the TV show.   That same month, it was announced that the series would be a prequel to the film series.  In January 2018, the series was ordered and will premiere on the Starz network. Chris Collins will serve as executive writer and showrunner for the series, while David Leitch, Keanu Reeves, and Chad Stahelski will produce the series. Stahelski will also direct the pilot episode.  COO of Starz (now President and CEO), Jeffrey Hirsch, later confirmed that the television series will be a prequel that takes place years before the films.

After one month of work, he had completed the first draft of the screenplay. After addressing several issues he pitched the script to various clients, garnering at least three offers.  When he first began to think about writing the script, Kolstad was influenced by film-noir classics, and the themes of revenge and the antihero. Kolstad explained that he tried to, "explore what would happen if the worst man in existence found salvation [... and] when the source of his salvation is ripped from him, what happens? Do the gates of Hades open? "  On December 3, 2012, it was announced that Thunder Road Pictures had bought the script with discretionary funds, with Kolstad agreeing due to Thunder Road's plan to make the film straight away.  When Basil Iwanyk, head of Thunder Road Pictures, had first read Kolstad's original screenplay, he was immediately drawn to the main character of Wick, stating, "The tone of the script was subversive and really fun. " He also admired the emotional weight and action elements of the piece. After Thunder Road had optioned the script, Kolstad spent additional months rewriting the script with them. In the original script, the character of John Wick was written with "a man in his mid-sixties" to play the role, given the title character's fabled reputation as a revered and respected assassin. However, Iwanyk believed that this was irrelevant and bent the original vision ever so slightly, stating, "Instead, we decided to look for someone who is not literally older, but who has a seasoned history in the film world. "  On May 7, 2013, it was announced that Keanu Reeves had begun negotiations to star in the piece in April. He was later confirmed as the film's male lead. After Iwanyk and Peter Lawson of Thunder Road showed him the script, he thought it to be full of potential and stated, "I love the role but you want the whole story, the whole ensemble to come to life. "  Reeves and Kolstad worked closely together on further developing the screenplay and the story,   with the screenwriter stating, "We spent as much time developing the other characters as we did his. [Keanu] recognizes that the strength of the storyline lies in even the smallest details. "  The title of the film was later changed from Scorn to John Wick, as according to Kolstad, "Keanu liked the name so much, that Reeves kept telling everyone that he was making a film called 'John Wick ' ", and the producers agreed, changing the title. During story discussions for John Wick, Reeves contacted Chad Stahelski and David Leitch, who he originally met on the set of The Matrix,  to see if they were interested in choreographing or directing the action of the piece.  Reeves admired Stahelski and Leitch's work performing, choreographing and coordinating, stating that, "When I got the script... I immediately thought of Chad and Dave for the action design, but I was secretly hoping they'd want to direct it. "  He then added, "I knew that they would love the genre and I knew that they would love John Wick. And I thought the worlds that get created – the real world and then this underworld – would be attractive to them, and it was. "  After reading Kolstad's script, Stahelski and Leitch told Reeves they wanted to tell the story of John Wick, as they both had a desire to get involved with a project as directors. Impressed with Reeves' enthusiasm and the quality of the script, Stahelski and Leitch, told him that they wished to direct the film and later presented him with their version of the story which was based on "[... ] the idea of [Wick] as an urban legend, a thriller assassin movie with a realistic vibe and an otherworldly setting. " Impressed with their concept, Reeves supported the pair, and Stahelski and Leitch pitched the idea to the studio, who hired them to direct, contrary to their initial request of directing the film's second unit. On May 7, 2013, it was announced that Stahelski and Leitch were to direct the film together as a team,   though it was later ruled by the Directors Guild of America that only Stahelski would be given the director credit. Leitch was credited as a producer.  Principal photography for the first film was confirmed to have begun in New York City with an original shooting schedule meant to have occurred from September 25 to December 5, 2013 with the filming process scheduled to continue in and around New York City and greater New York area.     In February 2015, directors Stahelski and Leitch stated that a John Wick sequel had begun development, which was later titled John Wick: Chapter 2.   The same month Jon Feltheimer, CEO of Lionsgate, stated during a conference call, "We see John Wick as a multiple-title action franchise. "  Additionally, it was reported that Kolstad would return to write the screenplay.  In May 2015, it was confirmed that a sequel was green-lit, and Lionsgate would be selling the film at the Cannes Film Festival. Principal photography on the film began on October 26, 2015, in New York City.  It would later move to Rome and eventually resumed in Montreal, Canada on October 27, 2016. In October 2016, Stahelski stated a third film was in development.  In June 2017, it was reported that Kolstad would return to write the screenplay for the third film.  In September 2017, Lionsgate announced a release date of May 17, 2019.  In January 2018, it was reported that Chad Stahelski was returning to direct the film and Common, Laurence Fishburne, and Ruby Rose were set to reprise their roles from the second film. Additionally, it was announced that Hiroyuki Sanada had been cast as the film's antagonist. The film began production in early 2018.  On May 21, 2018, it was reported that Halle Berry, Asia Kate Dillon, Anjelica Huston, Mark Dacascos and Jason Mantzoukas had joined the cast. Inspiration for the film series Edit Director Chad Stahelski cited The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (1966), Point Blank (1967), Le Cercle Rouge (1970), and The Killer (1989) as influences for John Wick.  About The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, Stahelski said, "Look at Clint Eastwood in [the film] – there is so much back-story unsaid there. We're big fans of leaving it to your imagination. We just give you some gold coins, and then it's, 'Where do the gold coins come from? ' We'll get to that eventually. Have your imagination do some work there. " He also said Point Blank influenced John Wick: "One of the biggest inspirations for the film was Point Blank. We watched it on a loop in our office, and there are a couple of homages to that [in John Wick]. "  Park Chan-wook 's The Vengeance Trilogy (2002–2005) and Lee Jeong-beom 's The Man from Nowhere (2010) influenced the film due to "[their] minimalist composition and graphic nature. "  Alistair MacLean and Stephen King were huge influences in the creation of the story of John Wick in terms of characterization and world-building, with screenwriter Derek Kolstad stating, "MacLean could build a world, and King could surprise you by what the main character truly was capable of. "  Outside of films, Stahelski and Leitch drew inspiration from the visual stylings of the '60s and '70s as well as cinematic influences, including Sergio Leone, Akira Kurosawa, Steve McQueen, Lee Marvin, William Friedkin and Sam Peckinpah. Stahelski himself said, "All the way back to Kurosawa up to Sergio Leone. We like the spaghetti western sensibility there, some of the composition. " About inspiration and emulation from the noir film genre, Stahelski added that "Noir maybe was sort of less impact for us than the other sort of westerns and Kurosawa and things like that. I think we wanted to make this hard-boiled character. "    Reception Edit Box office performance Edit Each film is linked to the "Box office" section of its article.

I swear if somehow someone ends up killing that dog then at the end of the film we'll only get to see John wick alone in a post apocalyptic world. 17:37 when you need more loot. Winston: Jonathan, what have you done? John Wick: Just making a bullet hole to use for sharpening my pencil! 😂. John Wick only kill 2 man with a pencil at john wick 2 AND he kill with book at john wick 3. I hope he kill the entire assasin that wanted to kill him on library at john wick 4.

The parents' guide to what's in this movie. Your past may catch up with you, but that doesn't mean you have to let yourself get caught up in it. Positive Role Models & Representations Despite being an assassin, John Wick is principled: He only hurts those who hurt others. Still, his "field" isn't exactly one that inspires admiration, at least from outsiders. Brutal: It feels like two-thirds of the film is made up of killings, and much of the violence is presented in a stylized, semi-glamorized way. Characters are shot, maimed, stabbed, beaten, threatened, killed with firearms at close range, blown to bits in an explosion, strangled with bare hands, and more. There's blood everywhere. In one of the most disturbing scenes, a man clubs a puppy to death; a trail of blood is shown leading to its carcass. In another extended scene filled with mayhem, the body count exceeds three dozen. Couples are shown kissing. Frequent language includes "f--k, " "s--t, " "goddamn, " and more. Several products/brands are seen, including Apple, Chevrolet, Mustang, Acura, and Peligroso liquor. Drinking, Drugs & Smoking Characters drink, usually hard liquor. Partiers at a bar are shown swilling champagne. One guy smokes marijuana. Stay up to date on new reviews.

Continue reading What's the story? JOHN WICK ( Keanu Reeves) is a retired assassin who was once the best in the business. But after a long illness that leads to the death of his beloved wife ( Bridget Moynihan), he's pulled back into a world that he left long ago for love. A chance encounter with the entitled, violent son of an old associate ends up with John bloodied in his own home and the dog his wife left him as a parting gift slaughtered. For John, there's now no other recourse but revenge. Is it any good? Few films in this genre are known for their intricate, layered dialogue or depth of feeling, and this doesn't exactly break these conventions. (Its most entertaining line may actually be "Oh. ") But there's no denying the artistry that went into its filming. The frames are well-crafted, the pace quick and effortless, the fight scenes choreographed like a ballet. It looks fantastic. And although it's an action thriller, it has a streak of humor that confidently runs through it, making it even more entertaining. Reeves' impermeable face and economic acting work well in this context because he plays a mystery man who remains mysterious throughout. And the rest of the cast -- especially Willem Dafoe and Michael Nyqvist -- is great, too. But there's no doubt that John Wick is deeply violent. It starts out quiet, and the first attack comes as a shock, which works well for the story. But after a while, all the fights begin to numb; although they're beautifully filmed, they lose their potency, since they come fast and furious without much room to breathe or process what's happening. And parents will want to know that the fighting is so ferocious that it borders on barbarous, making the movie best left for mature teens and adults. Talk to your kids about... Families can talk about why John Wick gets back in the "business. " Are his reasons, in this messed-up world, at all reasonable? Is he a sympathetic character, despite his line of work? Why or why not? John Wick is a violent movie. Does it glamorize the violence? If so, how? Does all the violence serve the story, or does it go too far? John is strongly motivated by revenge. Is that understandable? Is revenge ever an acceptable excuse for violence? Our editors recommend Clooney and Lopez sizzle in gun-happy heist flick. Hit man movie is violent, profane, and provocative. Quirky mix of laughs, romance, strong violence. Darker than usual Bond; too violent for tweens.
