Success from Experience
"John Wick" marks the duo's debut as directors and is the logical result of a successful journey. For years, David Leitch and Chad Stahelski and their stunt and action design company "87eleven" have been creating fierce stunt choreographies that set new standards. The two Friends of the Brand composed the fast-paced fight scenes in blockbusters such as "Sherlock Holmes" and "The Hunger Games". Now, Stahelski and Leitch show off their gift for nail-biting movie scenes as directors and producers of “John Wick”. The suspense-filled action thriller "John Wick" was filmed with true passion and the determination to break through barriers. The movie enthralls viewers with breathtaking stunts, gripping excitement, and an impressive cast: Swiss actor Daniel Bernhardt appears alongside Keanu Reeves and Willem Dafoe.
The spectacular movie tells the story of former contract killer John Wick, played by Keanu Reeves. When his dark past catches up with him John Wick, driven by feelings of revenge, once again takes up the fight against crime. All three of the Hollywood stars wear timepieces from Carl F. Bucherer on their wrists. While Keanu Reeves wears a Manero AutoDate in classic black for the movie, Willem Dafoe prefers a Manero AutoDate with a light dial for the action-packed, merciless chase through the streets of New York. Daniel Bernhardt wears a striking Patravi ChronoGrade that suits his movie character perfectly.
