in the franchise John Wick There is a cast established in international cinema. In large part, this helped the film become a worldwide box office success. In addition to the stunning action sequences, performances by Keanu Reeves, Ian McShane, Hiroyuki Sanada, Willem Dafoe, Bill Skarsgård, Rina Sawayama, Halle Berry and Donnie Yen also captivated several viewers.
That’s why the films’ director, Chad Stahelski, has revealed that he wants to continue this trend of dream casts for future installments set in the universe of the dog-loving anti-hero.
In an interview with , the filmmaker answered the question about his ideal cast The Direct. Stahelski said there is a “huge list” of people he would like to work with. Notably, many of the names on this list have appeared in the credits of action movies.
The first thing that came to mind was Cillian Murphy. I’m a huge Peaky Blinders fan. You know, I think Cillian would be a perfect fit. Colin Farell it’s awesome. Charlize Theron, when she was doing Atomic, I saw her and I was like, ‘My God, I have to work with this woman. Is fantastic’. Work with yes years ago in a commercial and I’ve been dying for it ever since [volver a] work with her. I’m a huge fan.”

But the director mentioned not only names of performers who appeared on tapes of a single genre and format. As well as talking about people who have been in action movies and the big screen, the idea of collaborating with people who have made superhero movies and worked on small screen productions also came up. These were his words:
“Interestingly, after the release of Lovecraft Country, jurnee smollett [quien también apareció en Aves de presa] he was one of those people. They are people who fit into the world for some reason [de John Wick]. And that’s always good.”
To this he added:
“There’s so many, I mean, there’s so many great people out there man. Yes Robert Downey Sit here in my chair, I would find a way [de involucrarlo]. Peter DinkelI was a big fan of his in Game of Thrones. [También soy fan de] sean bean. Some of these guys look magical to me. I would die to have a chance with any of them.”

When one of these actresses or actors becomes part of the cast of the saga John Wick, it would be interesting to see, but it would be even more meaningful if, like Oscar winner Halle Berry, they were included in the project. This is what Stahelski related:
“I got a call from Halle Berry. I was just told, ‘Halle Berry wants to be in John Wick. He’ll see you.’ asked [a Halle]: ‘If? And she said, ‘Today.’ And I said, ‘Okay.’ And Halle literally banged on the door and said, ‘I’m going to be in your movie. And I said to him, ‘I still don’t have a script.’ She said, ‘Write the script that I’m in.’ And I said, ‘Sure. That’s great’. And the next thing I knew, I had Halle Berry, which is great.”
There will be John Wick 5 or something else spin off? That’s what the producers say.
