“John Wick” Starring Keanu Reeves Casting Call for Russians in New York City

Project Casting

Casting directors for “John Wick” starring Keanu Reeves are currently seeking background talent for the upcoming feature film, currently filming in New York City.

John Wick is centered on a hitman who gets upset when a car thief steals his 1969 Ford Mustang  and kills the dog given to him by his beloved late wife.

JohnWick ends up tracking down the little thug down, only to discover that the thug’s daddy is a crime boss and Wick now has a bounty on his head.

According to Wegotthis, “John Wick will be directed by a pair, David Leitch and Chad Stahelski, both of whom have stunt/second unit credits on The Hunger GamesThe Expendables and After Earth. Leitch is also a stunt coordinator on the Wachowskis’ Jupiter Ascending. While I’m a little unnerved by the notion of not one but two stuntmen taking on directing duties, that at least means that the action is bound to be good.”
