Keanu Reeves in Dumbo

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?
