While actor Keanu Reeves is an excellent shooter as shown in previous training videos, he still has to be trained tactically on how to hold weapons like a professional would, penetrate/clear rooms, and look the part during the action sequence.
Some of this tactical training for John Wick: Chapter 3 was recently posted by Vigilance Elite on their YouTube channel that he was getting from Navy SEAL Shawn Ryan and you can see what happens behind the scenes to make Keanu look badass on screen.
Also, for a blast from the past here is the shooting video that went viral during the prep for John Wick: Chapter 2.
The cast consists of Keanu Reeves, Halle Berry, Laurence Fishburne, Mark Dacascos, Asia Kate Dillion, Lance Reddick, Anjelica Huston, Said Taghmaoui, Jerome Flynn, Jason Mantzoukas, Tobias Segal, Robin Lord Taylor, Yayan Ruhian, Tiger Hu Chen, Cecep Arif Rahman, and Randall Duk Kim.
In this third installment of the adrenaline-fueled action franchise, super-assassin John Wick (Keanu Reeves) returns with a $14 million price tag on his head and an army of bounty-hunting killers on his trail. After killing a member of the shadowy international assassin’s guild, the High Table, John Wick is excommuincado, but the world’s most ruthless hit men and women await his every turn.
Lionsgate has set the release of John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum for May 17th.
