John Wick has been compared to Nobody since it reached theaters and the film previously starred Bob Odenkirk. Directed by Ilya Naishuller, the film follows Hutch Mansell, a quiet man until his home is burglarized. In his past, he has worked with dangerous men, and in his present, he returns to the violent world he left. A connection between Keanu Reeves’ film and this film exists, as they share the same screenwriter: Derek Kolstad. Furthermore, its plot echoes the Killer franchise. Is it possible that we’ll see a ‘crossover’ between both characters? That question has been answered by the director of Nobody.
The possibility of John Wick and Hutch Mansell meeting in the future is still open. But Naishuller stresses that it is unlikely to happen. “I love it when people ask, ‘Is this the same universe?” Begins the director on IndieWire. The director says, “Okay, I can’t say anything, but you should look at which studio has made which film and then think about the possibility of crossovers. “I mean, everything is possible, but … it’s rare, but … Yes?”
Taking the director’s statement to heart and investigating the film’s studies as a whole, there is an impossibility for the ‘crossover’ to happen. Lionsgate will be responsible for the John Wick saga, while Universal will be responsible for Nobody. The world of cinema is filled with stranger things as well as Naishuller mentioned.
John Wick screenwriter Said
According to Kolstad, the John Wick screenwriter, the ‘crossover’ shouldn’t happen. “I think they are separate things that, if they were to meet at some point, it would be about the two of them walking through an airport and greeting each other,” he explains. “I think that’s much more interesting because, at a certain point when worlds collide, as a person who loves these kinds of movies, he always seems desperate at that moment. And in none of these things do I ever want to find myself in a desperate place. I would prefer it to be a small wink and a greeting to each other and to the public, “he concludes.
Nobody has just one movie coming out. John Wick is already on his third movie, John Wick: Blood Pact and John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum. Two more are in development – John Wick 4 and John Wick 5. The trailer of Nobody gives us a sneak peek at the universe these two characters will share. Are you interested?
