Actor Keanu Reeves, who rightly won a Blockbuster Entertainment Award for his performance as Neo in a little movie called The Matrix, is giving a master class in acting (and waiting around to act) on a rooftop in DUMBO today. Reeves's current project is the sequel to John Wick, a powerful rom-com about a man and his dog. SPOILER: Keanu has a blood stain on his shirt today, which may mean that Wick gets a little dinged up in this sequel.
SPOILER 2: It looks like Reeves is reuniting with his Matrix costar Laurence Fishburne for John Wick 2. There have so far been no reports that Fishburne is involved in the production (he's not on the IMDB cast page either) but it certainly looks like he has a cameo in this as the wise old pigeon racer.
I just walked past Laurence Fishburne and a very severe and tragic-looking Keanu Reeves (I think). Filming a JOHN WICK sequel? (I hope!)

"Fun" fact: John Wick's director is Chad Stahelski, who was Reeves's stunt double on The Matrix. Sad fact: Reeves smokes cigarettes, and has been seen lighting up multiple times while hanging around on set. Are you crazy, Keanu?! You have so much to live for! You're only 51!

John Wick 1 made $76,237,835 in its theatrical release worldwide. With Fishburne in the picture, John Wick 2: Wicked Good is expected to gross $3.9 trillion. As long as Reeves doesn't end up on the cutting room floor, this will be the first time Reeves and Fishburne have worked together since The Matrix Revolutions. Check back later for our EXCLUSIVE photos of them fighting on the roof (if it happens).
