The directing team is a bit different from the previous team as it is one member short. In the first movie, both Chad Stahelski and David Leitch saw to the completion of it. However, the entire task was left for Chad Stahelski in the second part of the movie since David Leitch is also involved in the filming of 'Coldest City' starring Charlize Theron and James McAvoy as the lead actors.
