On working together with Fishburne again, Reeves said, "It was so cool to have a chance to work with Laurence Fishburne again, with the history that we have professionally and personally. I ran into him, and he was saying that he was a fan of the first film, and was there anything in the second film. I said, 'As a matter of fact there is!' So, we sent him the project and he responded to the role."

Fishburne is not the only one from "The Matrix" who is involved in "John Wick: Chapter 2".
