John Wick is back! And the blockbuster Hollywood franchise is not only growing bigger, but it’s also getting better! John Wick 3 – the much-awaited third installment of the franchise – promises to take audience deeper into John Wick’s origins. And while the story demanded a more technically-evolved Wick, for the franchise’s star Keanu Reeves, the film was flat out the biggest physical test of his career!

Talking about it, Keanu Reeves says, “The vision for this film was so ambitious that I went into serious training four months before.” The Hollywood superstar adds, “There are so many different kinds of action sequences — not only more styles of martial arts and more gunplay, but also motorcycles, horses and dogs, so the training was intense. But honestly, I love it. I love this character and I love the John Wick universe we’ve created.”

Keanu Reeves knew that each time he dons the refined John Wick suit, it will demand an increasingly intensive, and exhausting, prep phase. He continues to drive himself, body and soul, to redefine his own limits. At his age, he admits the training is not getting any easier, but his resolve to bring out the best in Wick is as high as ever. “Sometimes I would think that maybe the training for this film was hard because of my age, but then I realised no, this one would be hard even if I wasn’t 54 because there’s so much action in John Wick: Chapter 3 Parabellum,” Keanu laughs, adding, “It’s demanding but I like it that way.”

“For me action has always been about that connection between the audience and the character. If that connection is there, the action has an emotional impact and you can feel the stakes,” Keanu Reeves concludes.

In this third installment of the adrenaline-fuelled action franchise, super-assassin John Wick (Keanu Reeves) returns with a $14 million price tag on his head and an army of bounty-hunting killers on his trail. John Wick – Chapter 3 is brought to India by PVR Pictures and is slated to hit the Indian screens on May 17. Directed by Chad Stahelski, the film also stars Oscar-winner Halle Berry.
