New York fans of Bill & Ted, Point Break, and The Matrix have been reporting Keanu Reeves sightings across the city since October, when production began on the sequel to the action star’s surprise hit John Wick. A classic revenge pic with a healthy dose of Hong Kong-style “gun fu,” John Wick was popular with moviegoers and critics alike, and was a comeback of sorts for the 51-year-old Reeves.
Today Gothamist reported that Reeves was filming on a rooftop in Dumbo, along with Matrix co-star Lawrence Fishburne. No word yet on why Wick is seeking out revenge this time — we hope his replacement dog makes it through the film all right — but Fishburne appears to be playing some sort of pigeon hobbyist. Maybe Wick needs some pigeons to fly in the background during a slow-motion, John Woo–style fight?
Fiming in Dumbo Brooklyn on Thursday, December 5, 2013 is Taxi Brooklyn, a TV series to be released in 2014.
Also filming in Dumbo on Friday and Saturday, December 6-7, 2013 will be Power, a TV drama series on Starz to be released in 2014. The plot, according to IMBD: “A wealthy New York night club owner catering for the city’s elite and dreaming big lives a double life as a drug kingpin.”
Filming in Dumbo Brooklyn on Tuesday, September 24 and Wednesday, September 25, 2013 is a CBS TV series Elementary. This drama/crime/mystery series is “A modern take on the cases of Sherlock Holmes, with the detective now living in New York City.” The show stars Jonny Lee Miller, Lucy Liu, Aidan Quinn, and Jon Michael Hill.
