Every Keanu Reeves story is a good story.
Keanu Reeves is a national treasure.
And to further prove that to everyone, today I present the most Keanu Reeves news of 2020: John Wick is called John Wick because Keanu Reeves kept saying the wrong movie title.
Basically, in an interview with Comicbook.com, John Wick co-creator Derek Kolstad explained that the movie was originally titled Scorn but Keanu kept incorrectly calling it John Wick, so the name stuck.
“The only reason it’s called John Wick is that Keanu kept referring to it as John Wick … Marketing was like, ‘Dude, that’s four to five million dollars in free advertising so far, so it’s John Wick instead of Scorn.’ I can’t imagine it being Scorn now.”
And there you have it: the title John Wick was willed into existence by the one and only Keanu Reeves.
Long live Keanu and every amazing story about him.
