BREAKING: ‘John Wick 2’ Taps Common as it’s Villain

It appears John Wick 2 has its main villain, as Common has been tapped to play the baddie antagonist opposite Keanu Reeves.

According to the report in The Hollywood Reporter, Common has joined to play the head of a security team for a female crime lord, as yet to be cast. Very few details about the plot of John Wick 2 have been disclosed. Reeves did speak to Collider a few weeks back regarding the details of the story:

“I think we have a really good premise, and it’s an organic premise. It’s basically — to me there’s John Wick and then there’s John. You know, John is the married guy whose wife just died, and that five years of his life. Then there’s John Wick, who’s the mythical assassin. In this, John Wick’s past comes and infiltrates John’s life and John Wick, in a way, has to fight for John.”

Common, rapper turned actor, has been in his fair share of films over the last few years, including most recently Selma, Entourage, and Run All Night. He is also in the upcoming Suicide Squad film, out in August of 2016.
