The 2021 sequel to Nobody, Bob Odenkirk's John Wick, is well on its way according to producer and filmmaker David Leitch.< /strong>
While Keanu Reeves will soon be back kicking ass in John Wick: Chapter 4 and the hitman's female counterparts are on the rise ( Atomic Blonde, Kate, Bloody Milkshake), his other first cousin, Hutch Mansell played by Bob Odenkirk (Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul), could also return to hand out mandalas after the friendly Nobody. The two titles bear no relationship narratively, but the style, choreography and credits of screenwriter Derek Kolstad and producer David Leitch compel comparison.
From crooked lawyer to action hero
Since the release of the film in June 2021, the idea of a sequel has been raised several times, notably by the main actor and a few cast members like Connie Nielsen. Even if the end of the first part lends itself to it, Universal has not yet given the green light, which should only be a matter of time according to its producer.
During an interview with Collider for the release of their new movie Bullet Train, David Leitch gave an update on Nobody 2 which is apparently progressing at a good pace:
“I think everyone is really excited about it. We're writing the script and I think we had a lot of fun doing it. Kelly [editor's note: producer Kelly McCormick] and I had a blast, the actors too, the studio loved the result and it's happening. I think it's happening as fast as we can make it […] We all want to go back and play in that universe, and we want to see Bob bring that character back to life.“
There is no age limit for emptying loaders
If the project materializes,director Ilya Naishuller, who canned the first Nobody, could come back for the sequel, as can screenwriter Derek Kolstad, who is no longer attached to the franchise John Wick. For its part, John Wick 4 will be released in French theaters on March 22, 2023 before returning in a fifth and final installment.
