Oscar winner Common (‘Selma’) has been cast to play the villain opposite Keanu Reeves in ‘John Wick 2,’ reports The Hollywood Reporter.

Production has begun this week with Chad Stahelski directing the film for Lionsgate Films. The first film had a worldwide gross of over $70M.

In the first film, Reeves stars as an ex-hitman who is forced to dole out some retribution when gangsters break into his home, beat him up and kill his dog. He re-enters the tangled underworld of assassins he left behind and shows everyone that’s he’s still not to be trifled with.
