Officially that Keanu Reeves will reprise Doreen who made him famousHe created around him the aura of legend that earned him worldwide recognition as an actor. On the one hand, the name John Wick, the homonym for the protagonist in the film franchise, and on the other hand the name of Constantine, and even in this case no further explanations are needed.
Let’s start with the first project, which also seems to be the most advanced if we look at the development times. Keanu Reeves is currently in Prague to begin filming and is about to reprise the role of John Wick In the episodic movie, dancerWhich will witness the participation of actress Ana de Armas. The film will also see Ian McShane return to the franchise as Winston, the manager of the Continental Hotel. It’s still unclear if Reeves’ presence will be framed in a simple cameo or if he will have a more significant role in the overall plot, but it’s still good news.
Since the first movie of John Wick It hit theaters in 2014, and the Chad Stahelsky-directed franchise has grown exponentially, with three additional films, including the highly anticipated John Wick 4 that continues to delay its release in theaters. There are also two spin-off projects, one of them dancer which is currently going on with its first shoot in Prague, but on the horizon there is also a prequel series by John Wick, which is Continentalwhich will focus on the hotel and Winston’s early life.
At the moment, it is not known whether the film dancer It will be set before the events of John Wick or if it can be placed near the fourth movie in the franchise.
And we conclude with the second surespecifically the presence of Keanu Reeves in the future sequel to Constantine. In this case, the timing is more ambiguous and depends on a statement from the director. During a recent interview with the comic book, Frances Lawrence explained that although Keanu Reeves is really related to the character of Constantine, a sequel to the 2005 film will be produced but the script has yet to be written. Here are his words.
We don’t have a script, but Keanu, me, and Akiva [Goldsman], who all worked together in the first episode, we’ve all tried over the years to start another episode. It was difficult because of the DC/Vertigo universe and who owns the character and who controls the characters, trying to get the right people to move on. We have now and now we need the story. We all like to do that.
A confirmation of this, which nevertheless shows how the timing was expanded due to bureaucratic problems, rights and agreements, which were the bottleneck preventing the start of production work. However, it looks like a box has been reached but we will know more in the coming months.
