Common Talks John Wick: Chapter 2

Last week the official synopsis was revealed for John Wick: Chapter 2 and you can read it below.

Plot: 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.

Now that you’re up the speed Common will be playing a rival hitman in the movie, which sounds pretty much like the same charatcer he played in Run All Night (an underrated movie if you ask me).

Anyway, Common chatted with Collider about his role in the follow-up; “My character is less a villain than he is a rival to John Wick. They’re cut from the same cloth. They’re the same type of warriors. But it’s time for battle, at a certain point. It’s a lot of fun to get to be in this movie. We shot in some great places. I just love that world and I’m excited to see what comes from it.”

John Wick did an amazing job setting up its world, and it’s clear that Common is looking forward to becoming a part of it; “The sequel is taking the world of John Wick – and I love the world of John Wick – and elevating it and taking it higher, but you’ve got the essence of what John Wick is. It’s not the same story repeated. It’s heightened in the environment, the action and the struggle for John Wick. The action and the fighting is just growing and getting better. It’s next level.”
