“I went into the training at least five months before. The physicality of the martial arts, and then the weapon work, all the time that I’ve put in I’m better at it,” Reeves says in the video. “It really was some of the hardest training I’ve done, because there’s a lot more action in Parabellum than there is in the other two films.”
First Experience for Halle Berry
Reeves has worked on his John Wick moves since years now, but it was the very first time out for Halle Berry. However, she met the challenge head-on.
“Some people say they want to do John Wick training, and then it starts, and they’re like ‘OH. This is John Wick training,'” he jokes. “Halle said she wanted to do that, [director] Chad [Stahelski] said, ‘Here you go.’ And Halle said, ‘Thank you sir, can I please have some more?'”
“The hardest six or seven months I think I’ve experienced in my professional life. I kept going because I just would not quit,” Berry adds. “I had to learn to fight one like Keanu, and I had to learn to fight with him in very close proximity. We’re very much a team. This is just hard as shit, but it’s also a lot of fun and I have a great team of people that are teaching me and training me.”
