It’s been a while since The Matrix trilogy was in theaters and on the big screen! Well, Keanu Reeves and Laurence Fishburne are reliving those days, in part, because Fishburne has joined Reeves for John Wick 2, set to be released close to Valentine’s Day next year.
Reeves spoke on the excitement about hitting the big screen with Fishburne once again:
“It was so cool to have a chance to work with Laurence Fishburne again, with the history that we have professionally and personally. I ran into him, and he was saying that he was a fan of the first film, and was there anything in the second film. I said, “As a matter of fact there is!” So, we sent him the project and he responded to the role. Lawrence is playing a character called the Bowery King. He is a leader of this underworld in New York City. He knows everything about everything and he helps John in his mission. It was cool to act with him again and hopefully people will enjoying seeing us reunited.”
