Popular podcaster Joe Rogan was amazed by a “crazy” fact revealed during a chat with John Wick director Chad Stahelski.
Stahelski was asked about Keanu Reeves’ impressive gun magazine swapping action on the violent assassin series.
John Wick: Chapter 4, the latest installment in the series, opened in March with a best-of-$73.5 million at the box office.
But movie buff Rogan, 55, had just one burning question to quiz Stahelski with: “Where did the magazine reload flip come from?”
The director and stuntman, 54, replied that Reeves came up with the idea himself.
Reeves plays gunman John Wick in the series.
Stahelski added, “Weird – I give Keanu my full credit… 100 percent.
“He started it and I’m like, ‘What are you doing?’
“He said, ‘I’ll check that (train)’. I give credit to Keanu, I mean, that’s great.”
An impressed Rogan said of the promotion: “It’s great.
“People do stuff like that — you know how crazy that is.”
“An actor for a movie decides to come up with something, and that’s actually a quicker way to churn out a magazine.”
Chapter 4 lasts two hours and 49 minutes and cost at least $100 million to produce.
In the film, Wick uncovers a way to take down the High Table, the organization that rules organized crime around the world.
But before Wick can gain his freedom, he must face a new enemy with powerful alliances across the world and powers that turn old friends into foes.
In March, 58-year-old Reeves told the Press Association news agency at a gala screening in London, Britain: “I think we really just wanted to expand the John Wick universe, but really connect with John and the journey he was on .” I open it up to friendships now too.
“If anything, maybe the action is a little more elaborate and complex.”
