'John Wick 2' director Chad Stahelski talks about making the action real
Chad Stahelski and David Leitch have been pals since the days they both worked as stuntmen on "The Matrix" series. But being on those -- and many other -- sets, got them interested in directing. They started working toward that by landing gigs as second unit directors, but kept waiting for the right project to come by that would make them take the leap to the directing chair. They ended up doing that first one together, co-directing the offbeat action film "John Wick" in 2014. Then the offers began rolling in. So many of them that they decided to head out on separate directing careers. Leitch is currently finishing up his first solo project, "The Coldest City," and Stahelski made "John Wick: Chapter 2" (which both guys also coproduced). Stahelski spoke about continuing on with the character and story of Wick, the newest action anti-hero played by Keanu Reeves. Q: How does someone who's doing stunts manage to learn how to be a director?
