Lionsgate Planning ‘John Wick’ Sequel

Lionsgate is planning a sequel to Keanu Reeves’ action-thriller “John Wick.”

CEO Jon Feltheimer made the announcement Friday during a conference call with analysts to discuss the studio’s earnings for the third quarter ended Dec. 31.

“We see ‘John Wick’ as a multiple-title action franchise,” Feltheimer said.

The movie grossed $43 million domestically and $35 million internationally following its October launch. Feltheimer noted that the title had performed well in ancillary markets.

“John Wick,” written by Derek Kolstad, and directed by Chad Stahelski and David Leitch, also starred Michael Nyqvist, Alfie Allen, Adrianne Palicki, Bridget Moynahan, Dean Winters, Ian McShane, John Leguizamo, and Willem Dafoe. In the action pic, Reeves plays a retired hitman seeking vengeance for the killing of his puppy, a gift from his late wife.

The film was produced by Basil Iwanyk of Thunder Road Pictures, Leitch, Eva Longoria and Michael Witherill. Stahelski and Leitch previously worked with Reeves as stunt doubles on The Matrix trilogy.

Kolstad is writing the sequel. He’s repped by APA, Circle of Confusion and Behr Abramson Levy LLP.

Movies.com first reported that Stahelski and Leitch were developing a sequel.
