LOS ANGELES: Keanu Reeves did not need much persuasion to reprise his role as a retired hit-man whose path to revenge sees him killing dozens more, in the upcoming sequel John Wick: Chapter 2.

"I love John Wick," the actor admitted, ahead of the film's opening in theatres on Friday. "We had great ideas. We opened up the world making a darn good action movie."

After the death of his puppy and the theft of his car led the hit-man on a bloody rampage in 2014's hit action thriller John Wick, the sequel delves into the character's murky past. It includes the emergence of a rival assassin and a nefarious Italian playboy who destroys Wick's home, the only reminder of his once-happy life and sets a bounty on Wick's head, causing the hit-man to go back underground.
