The thriller – John Wick – will stage a face-off between two friends who find themselves getting back into the murder business.
Keanu Reeves will play the title character in John Wick, a former hitman whose killing instincts are reawakened when a thug steals his 1969 Mustang and kills his dog, which was given to him by his late wife.
In the process of tracking down his aggressor, John discovers that he is up against a well-connected man, whose crime boss father places a price on John’s head.
When the gangster chooses Marcus (Willem Dafoe) to take out John Wick, things get complicated: The two men were once colleagues and close friends, and Marcus supported John through the death of his wife.
The feature film will be the directorial debut of two experienced Hollywood stunt coordinators, David Leitch and Chad Stahelski.
Both men have each choreographed and performed stunts in several dozens of films, including The Hunger Games, The Expendables, The Wolverine and Parker. — AFP Relaxnews
