Keanu Reeves has had a resurgence as an action movie star thanks to his role as John Wick in the John Wick film franchise. The third film in this series is going to be released this year and, in an interview with a small group of journalists, Keanu Reeves had the chance to discuss John Wick 3.

Keanu Reeves had this to say on how the skills he has learnt playing the part of John Wick have helped him in acting and real life:
“It’s been really fun to be on a street and be in a store that people like, and sometimes love. That’s really nice. I love the character and I love the world. I don’t often times get to contribute to the story as much as I do with this project. Learning how to do that – learning how to collaborate with the writers, and with Chad, that’s been fun to explore. It’s great to have the voice to be able to do that.”
Keanu Reeves also discussed what he is most proud about when it comes to the John Wick franchise:
“I would say it’s the blend of elements that it has. I think the way the action is and the world that’s created. I think the cinema of the series is really strong – you know, the framing, the the camera movement. I think the set design is really great. So, I think the film is really easy to watch. It’s beautiful.”
“There’s a character that we root for, hopefully. He’s fighting for his life. They’re not insulting. The films are fun, but they’re smart. There’s humor, and action. Comedy. It has a unique tone, I think. So, you can tell I’m a fan. So, I would say those are the elements.”
