John Wick Directors Worked On Action Scenes In Captain America: Civil War

Cap Wick

The Russo Brothers seem to have a huge hit on their hands with the upcoming Captain America: Civil War, but they also aren't afraid to ask for help every now and again.

That's what happened when they enlisted the services of Chad Stahelski and David Leitch, the directors of the much loved John Wick. In an interview with Collider, the duo spoke about the process of getting them on board.

"They did us a huge favor. They're friends of ours, and obviously, they're now off enjoying very successful directing careers, and just as friends we called them and asked them if they'd help us execute some of the action sequences. Along with Spiro Razatos, who is generally regarded as the top guy along with Chad and David, so we literally had an all-star team of second unit directors working on this movie with us, because we cared so much about the action, the quality of the action, and we knew we had to work really hard to up our game from Winter Solider, so we wanted to bring in the best people in the business to help us do that."

From early reports of the Airport scene, it looks like all that work paid off in spades.


Captain America: Civil War launches on May 6th.
