On Set Of 'John Wick' With Keanu Reeves

By ET CANADA

ET Canada got a behind-the-scenes look at Keanu Reeves' new film "John Wick" in New York City.

The Canadian actor plays John Wick, a former hit man who goes back to his old life after his late wife's dog is taken away.

Directed by David Leitch and Chad Stahelski, the film is in good hands. Both are former stuntmen, who are no strangers to the fast-paced world of action flicks. With experience on The Hunger Games, Iron Man 2 and 300, they aren't cutting any slack for Keanu and the rest of the cast, which includes Daniel Bernhardt and  Zero Hour's Michael Nyqvist.

"Because they've come from this action world, they really understand that and can do other things with it," says Keanu.

The directors are focusing on giving the fans something different, says David: "There's a lot of fighting, a lot of gun play. But we tried to sort of create a new style of martial arts and guns together.”
