surprise box-office hit John Wick, which he co-directed with Chad Stahelski and
which starred Keanu Reeves. His second film as director was the neon-noir

Prior to becoming a director, Leitch spent a decade in the stunt business and
doubled actors including Matt Damon and Brad Pitt on such films as The Bourne
Ultimatum, Fight Club and Mr. & Mrs. Smith. He was also a fight choreographer,
stunt coordinator and 2nd unit director on multiple films including The
