Keanu Reeves shares grisliest John Wick 4 set accidents

The John Wick movies have the best stunt teams on the planet creating their action movie chaos, but Keanu Reeves says things still go wrong sometimes.

Keanu Reeves as John Wick

In the world of the John Wick movies, every sequence of action movie carnage is very serious business indeed. These thriller movies live on the destruction perpetrated by leading man Keanu Reeves and the rest of the John Wick cast.

The new movie in the franchise, John Wick 4, is now in cinemas and pits the titular assassin against the Marquis de Gramontmovie villain extraordinaire and highest-ranking member of criminal council the High Table.

As we explained in our John Wick 4 review, this movie ups the ante when it comes to the action, all the way up to the John Wick 4 ending. The franchise has some of the most gifted stunt people on the planet at its disposal, but accidents can still happen.

In a new interview with ComicBook, Reeves explained some of the accidents that took place while filming John Wick 4, including one he still feels guilty about.

He said: “Well I mean everyone is pretty tired – but it’s the best kind of tired. It’s like you climbed a mountain and now you’re resting; like you finished the game and you won. So in terms of accidents: I made a mistake once – I cut a gentleman’s head open. So that really fucking sucked, excuse my language. But other than that – oh, one guy got hit by a car. He was in the car, so he had to go to the hospital, but he was okay.”
