Opening up the world… the underground world. The world behind the world in terms of the assassins. Kind of evolving the action… if the first one was a black belt, then this one is third degree black belt. It’s such a fun project and a great character.” We then asked about the video going viral of the gun training: Keanu: “I take my characters very serious and want to learn all aspects of any part I play. I had a ton of weapons training for The Matrix series of movies but nothing compares to the amount of work I am putting in for “Chapter Two”, you will be very happy with the results, I promise you.
