Laurence Fishburne Reunites With Keanu Reeves for ‘John Wick 2’ Cameo

There’s been a “Matrix” reunion in “John Wick 2” — Laurence Fishburne has joined Keanu Reeves for a small role in the film.

Fishburne was photographed this week in Brooklyn by Gothamist on the set of the Lionsgate production. Fishburne’s reps confirmed that the actor was shooting a cameo.

Chad Stahelski, who co-directed the original with David Leitch, is helming the sequel. Thunder Road’s Basil Iwanyk is returning to produce.

Lionsgate began selling foreign markets for the sequel at Cannes. The original movie grossed $43 million domestically and $35 million internationally following its launch a year ago.

“John Wick” also starred Michael Nyqvist, Alfie Allen, Adrianne Palicki, Bridget Moynahan, Dean Winters, Ian McShane, John Leguizamo and Willem Dafoe. Reeves played a retired hitman seeking vengeance for the killing of his puppy, a gift from his late wife.

Moynahan, Leguizamo and McShane are reprising their roles and Derek Kolstad returned to script. Common has joined the cast as the villain along with Peter Stormare. Lionsgate has not yet set a release date for “John Wick 2.”

Reeves and Fishburne starred in all three “Matrix” films as Neo and Morpheus. Stahelski and Leitch played stunt doubles for Reeves in the trilogy.

Fishburne will be seen as Perry White in “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice.”

Fisburne is repped by Paradigm. Kolstad is repped by APA and Circle of Confusion.
