Keanu Reeves (The Matrix franchise) returns with director Chad Stahelski (John Wick) and writer Derek Kolstad (John Wick) in this globe-trotting, action-packed thriller. Reeves stars alongside an all-star cast including Bridget Moynahan (TV’s “Blue Bloods”), Ian McShane (TV’s upcoming “American Gods”), John Leguizamo (American Ultra), Common (Selma), Peter Stormare (TV’s upcoming “American Gods”), and, reuniting with Reeves for the first time since The Matrix films, Laurence Fishburne (TV’s “Hannibal”).
Legendary hit man John Wick is forced out of retirement again 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.
