The 2014 thriller John Wick was one of the most enjoyable action movies of recent years, and its upcoming sequel is much anticipated. Now a new video of star Keanu Reeves preparing for the gun-toting lead role in John Wick: Chapter Two has been released--check it below:

The first movie featured Reeves as a vengeful ex-hitman who takes on the Russian mob. It also starred Willem Dafoe, Bridget Moynahan, Ian McShane, and John Leguizamo.

Reeves spoke recently to IGN about the follow-up, and how this second dose of high-octane action would differ from the first movie. "For us it was just, what is the next chapter? What is the continuation of this story?" he said. "Opening up the world--the underground world. The world behind the world in terms of the assassins. Kind of evolving the action.

"If the first one was a black belt, then this one is third degree black belt. It's such a fun project and a great character."

John Wick: Chapter Two will also see Reeves reunite with Lawrence Fishburne, his co-star from the sci-fi blockbuster The Matrix, and its sequels. "He plays such a great character in the piece," Reeves explained. "He brings humour, intelligence, charisma, and fascination--he's such an incredible actor and it was a pleasure to work with him again."

John Wick: Chapter Two is set to hit cinemas in February 2017.
