Reeves described some of the car stunts he puts on display in the film.
“There’s 180s, forward-into-reverse 180s, reverse-into-forward 270s, drifting. … So it was really fun to get a chance to learn those skills, and to play,” Reeves said to People.
The adrenaline junkie described how much he enjoyed the various aspects of his legendary role as the hitman in the action-hero franchise.
“I love the challenges of John Wick, it’s super intense,” he said. “It’s playful. I get to do different things — driving, you know? [I get to use] nunchucks and do movie Judo, movie jujitsu. So I really enjoy that.”
The famous actor said it took him months to prepare for this particular role.
“John Wick: Chapter 4 was the hardest physical role I’ve ever had in my career so far,” he said in a previous interview with Total Film, according to People.
“I enjoy the challenges and the intensity and the noise,” he said. “So I’m not looking to hang out on the beach.”
“They really trained me up to be able to have what we call the toolbox,” Reeves said.(RELATED: Keanu Reeves Literally Took The Red Pill From ‘The Matrix’ Set)
