    [–] Hey, I'm director Chad Stahelski! Let's talk about John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum - AMA JohnWickMovie 570 points ago in IAmA

    I think what Marvel has achieved with the MCU is the next gen in films. Its the perfect example of a universe creation similar to GOT. To create a crossover series to invest us in so many characters and stories that it becomes operatic in the best of ways - that's through the creation of so many storylines and characters that they've found a unity across a diverse audience that we've found something we can all love and respect across the MCU. That's why there's so much love and why it's done so well. I believe it to be a culmination of the last decade's storytelling.

    Maintaining tone. Second, pacing, how to make an interesting film pace just right - always a directorial challenge for both things, and I'm still learning.

    If you choose to climb the mountain a thousand steps to the hidden shrine, choose to answer the calling.

    Yes, I've always been interested. I took up photography at 14. I also love art, renaissance art specifically. Caravaggio is one of my favorite artists.

    Probably not a B&W film of JW, but I'll do a B&W film with Dan Laustsen - Dan's a jedi master.

    I also am a fan of Raid and Raid 2, thats how I first saw them. I wanted to work with them really badly. Managed to get a hold of their agents and asked them if they wanted to join us on JW3. They were excited for the chance and happy to work with us, especially since they're big JW fans.

    1, I met Mark many years ago when he was doing "Drive", been a huge fan since "Brotherhood of the Wolf" which, little hint, Dan Laustsen was also the cinematographer

    2, Tiger Chen is in the movie. He's a friend of ours from the first Matrix and did us a good favor and doing one of our fight scenes.

    Working with them is incredibly collaborative. I've learned so much from them from the last 3 films. Music is every bit important as set design and lighting when you're trying to create a world. It gives the visual aesthetic of the film an added dimension which helps immerse the audience in the world we're trying to create.

    Prep correctly. Just means that if you don't prep properly (train the cast, rehearse with stuntmen, conceive choreography, find the correct locations, train cameramen, inform your cinematographer, and include your editor in the process) camera angles aren't everything. You need a united front from your entire crew to develop a great action sequence. Action is like pool - you gotta call your shots. You can't just hit the ball and see what happens.

    1, awesome. Makes my job incredibly fun and interesting and easy.

    2, cannon fodder :)

    3, excited to walk my dogs. And hopefully The Continental.

    No, but we just saw Andy (Daisy) recently in NY. A good friend of our animal trainer is now Andy's owner, but still shows up to all our premieres.

    She's always exuded so much charisma and gravitas. If I was going to have someone who was in charge of a large portion of the Wick universe, it would be her.

    These were made for people who'v never seen a JW movie ever. We've tried to make these movies to see something new and fresh. People who like seeing interesting action, different characters, and different processes of storytelling. Fi this sounds interesting to you, you should see John Wick 1, 2 and 3.

    We're all very excited. Now that Parabellum is completed, Keanu and I are excited to dive into the creative process of creating The Continental with Lionsgate.

    Not so much films as filmmakers - but here are a few: all of Sergio Leone's "Man with No Name Series", especially "The Good, The Bad and The Ugly". Steve McQueen's "Bullet". Loved the car chase in the "French Connection". Akira Kurosawa in the "Seven Samurai" & "Yojimbo" and obviously anything by Buster Keaton.

    All of them. Each and every one. I have an amazing stunt team and I'm very appreciative of them all.

    I'm a huge Jackie Chan fan. I would have to say that much of how I choreograph was inspired by him and his stunt team. I have actually sat and discussed several projects with him, and we both share a deep desire to work together. We'll just have to wait and see what the future holds.

    I was Keanu's choice, he was attached before I was. In fact, Keanu inspired us to pitch for John Wick.
