John Wick: Keanu Reeves in a stunt 'cut a man’s head open'

In an action scene gone bad while filming one of the John Wick    movies, Keanu Reeves once cut open a man's head, the actor admitted.

Speaking to the Speed star said: "Well I mean everyone is pretty tired – but it’s the best kind of tired."

"It’s like you climbed a mountain now you’re resting; like you finished the game and you won."

"So in terms of accidents: I made a mistake once – I cut a gentleman’s head open," Reeves continued.

"So that really fucking sucked – excuse my language. But other than that…oh, one guy got hit by a car. He was in the car, so he had to go to the hospital, but he was okay. All of this to say that you do have to take care. But it’s great that everyone [on set] is watching out for each other."

"There’s some bruising and aches and pains, but [imitates official PSA announcement] 'No humans were harmed in the filming of this motion picture!'"

The most recent installment of the series is John Wick: Chapter 4. In addition to Donnie Yen, Bill Skarsgrd, Laurence Fishburne, Hiroyuki Sanada, Shamier Anderson, Lance Reddick (in one of his final performances), Rina Sawayama, Scott Adkins, and Ian McShane, the film also stars Keanu Reeves as the title character.
