In little under a year’s time, Keanu Reeves’ sharp-suited assassin will return to the fray for John Wick 2, Chad Stahelski’s follow-up to 2014’s action-packed sleeper hit.

Promising “next-level action” and a grander scope, story details have remained firmly under lock and key – stored safely in a vault next to John Wick’s precious stash of gold coins. Then again, there have been murmurings that Stahelski’s sequel will shift the clandestine action to mainland Europe, and while there are plenty of questions still to be answered, an official synopsis for John Wick 2 has emerged today shedding light on Reeves’ next adventure.


Welcoming back the likes of John Leguizamo, Lance Reddick, Bridget Moynahan and Game of Thrones star Ian McShane, the logline tees up a “shadowy international assassins’ guild” and, as reported, a trip to the Italian capital.

Keanu Reeves returns in the sequel to the 2014 hit as legendary hitman John Wick who is forced to back out of retirement by a former associate plotting to seize control of a shadowy international assassins’ guild. Bound by a blood oath to help him, John travels to Rome where he squares off against some of the world’s deadliest killers. Lionsgate’s “John Wick: Chapter 2” arriving in theaters on February 10, 2017.

Among the newcomers joining Keanu Reeves in the action-thriller are Orange is the New Black alum Ruby Rose, Common, Peter Stormare, Riccardo Scamarcio and Laurence Fishburne, with Reeves’ Matrix co-star recently teasing a “really cool” and minor role.

John Wick 2 will unleash Keanu Reeves’ force of nature on February 10, 2017.
