Find out how Laurence Fishburne character will help the franchise live longer on the flip…
Well dreams do come true, it is Hollywood!
Thanks to directors Chad Stahelski and David Leitch, who brought you the first John Wick, and striking gold for their $20 million dollar budget by quadrupelling its cost, which in turn greenlit a sequel.
This time around the sequel will be bringing more to the table and Lawrence Fishbourne, who you can see in the upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice this week revealed how his character will add another level and expansion possibilities for a third film.
Lawrence weighed in by saying this about his upcoming role in John Wick: Chapter 2:
“I’m not part of the Continental world, no, but I’m a part of another world that exists inside the world of John Wick. That wasn’t something that was clear in the first movie. It’s like a part of his world that exists but you wouldn’t know about it, and it won’t really be revealed until the second movie.”
CelebNMovies247.com got the inside track on Fishburne’s reference via CinemaBlend who revealed:
The Continental world that Laurence Fishburne is referring to is the name of the hotel that John Wick seeks refuge in during his bout with Michael Nyvqvist’s Viggo Tarasov. This is a hotel that exclusively caters to assassins and criminals, however, killing is completely outlawed on the premises. Ian McShane will once again play the hotel’s owner in the sequel.
But Laurence Fishburne’s comments suggest that John Wick: Chapter 2 will explore an entirely different world to the original, which should then see a whole new cast of assassins and devious individuals causing mayhem. So far Common, Peter Stormare, Riccardo Scamarcio, and Ruby Rose have joined Laurence Fisburne as the newest additions to the franchise.
For now watch the trailer for John Wick:
And like we said earlier, it is the tantalising prospect of the old Matrix pals Laurence Fishburne and Keanu Reeves reuniting that really makes John Wick: Chapter 2 so appealing.
