To play a character rumored to have once killed three men in a bar with a pencil, Keanu Reeves went through three months of John Wick boot camp: intensive training in martial arts, gun work, fight choreography and stunt driving. Action propels the story in John Wick: Chapter 2, in theatres February 17, with Reeves reprising his role as the title character: an unflappable and inventive assassin reluctantly drawn into an international criminal underworld. Returning director Chad Stahelski knows his star and material well: Stahelski is a former stunt coordinator who doubled for Reeves in The Matrix movies. There are more guns in Chapter 2, so the actor spent countless hours drawing, shooting and reloading various firearms. It was really a little heart-wrenching to see it. Reeves was John Wick before any of his stunt training began. I love the depth of his feeling. I like his honour. I like how he fights for his life. I like his sense of humour.
