“John Wick 2” plot details were revealed by actor Ian McShane, hinting at his more significant role in the upcoming film.
Ian McShane played the role of Winston in “John Wick 2” in 2014, International Business Times reported.
He was the owner of the Continental Hotel, which was a boutique hotel providing services to the assassins.
However, at that time, he didn’t have a significant role as he was seen with minimal screen time in the previous movie. His role as Winston does not create much impact in the story.
In the sequel in 2017, he said he will have more appearances in the film as his role became bigger, thus hinting at his more extensive involvement with John Wick’s character played by Keannu Reeves.
He said in an interview with Entertainment Weekly, “We’ll, I’m kind of the only one left from the first one. This is the same kind of premise. It’s not like two years later, but pretty soon after the first one.”
“They got this terrific Italian kid, Riccardo Scamarcio, who plays the chief villain. He’s excellent, and we have a lot of stuff together.”
“ And the guy who directs it, Chat Stahelski, is really smart. He’s been Keannu’s stunt guy for [nearly] 20 years and he’s studied muay thai,” he added.
He also mentioned that Keannu Reeves as his co-actor is a great guy, and got stuntmen for the “John Wick” film.
“He’s got every stunt man who’s available for [this film]. The action looks like it was done by somebody out of Hong Kong instead of Hollywood, which I always think is a great sight,” McShane said.
What the fans could expect from “John Wick 2” is a better film than the first one. The general plot was also revealed during the interview.
He explained, “Keannu gets a new dog. But yes, it’s about what comes after that. It’s all about the assassin’s code, if you like.”
“He’s killed a Russian gangster and now there’s a contract out on him, so it’s a continuation. I loved the first one. This could be even better than the first,” he added.
“John Wick 2” will be in cinemas in February 16, 2017 under Thunder Road Pictures.
