Reeves’ John Rain: “Unseen Level Of Action For TV”


Keanu Reeves is making a foray into television with “Rain”, an hourlong series from Slingshot Global Media, based on the best-selling book series by Barry Eisler.  Now “John Wick” directors Chad Stahelski and David Leitch, who will act as producers alongside Reeves himself, have spoken about delivering on action, for a TV show…

“No one’s done the action to the level that I think we can do it.  And it’ll be hard because you’re gonna fit it in a box on TV that you don’t have to fit it in a box in cinema, you have a little more resources.  That would be the challenge for Rain, how do you make compelling action as well that’s worthy of the big screen but living on the small screen?”
John Rain centres on a half-Japanese, half-American contract assassin who specializes in taking out his targets by making it look like death by natural causes.  Good to see Reeves returning full bore to the action genre!
