‘John Wick 2’ Stunt Coordinator Says Keanu Reeves Is The Best Driver In Showbiz

It is no secret that Keanu Reeves is a huge motorcycle fan and actually owns his very own bike company. As it turns out, he is also quite handy behind the wheel of a car.

Throughout filming of his latest action flick ‘John Wick: Chapter 2’, Reeves jumped behind the wheel of a selection of pretty cool cars and, according to the stunt coordinator for the film, the Canadian actor is actually the best in the business when it comes to stunt driving.

In the clip below, filmed for Vanity Fair, Darrin Prescott describes the epic opening car chase in the film which sees Reeves, playing John Wick, retrieve his stolen Ford Mustang and, in the process, take out a number of assassins attempting to kill him.

Beyond explaining how capable Reeves is behind the wheel, the clip provides a fascinating insight into how car chases are filmed in Hollywood.

      What did you think of 1 and 2?

      • KidRed

        Awesome. 2 is even better. Keanu is just so badass, trained until he was a gun toting beast so all of the action is full frame and long shots. No tight editing, cropping, all wide frame, so beautiful to watch.
