The 1969 Mustang from the “John Wick” films is headed to Lambeau Field — Keanu Reeves not included.

The car his cold-blooded assassin drove in the first two installments of the franchise will be parked outside the South Gate of the stadium from 8 a.m. to noon Sunday for the Packers home opener against the Minnesota Vikings. Fans will be able to take photos with it. 

It’s part of the John Wick Road Trip visiting 10 cities in September. Fans will also be able escape an army of assassins with a “John Wick” motorcycle green screen, check out props from the action thriller and have a chance to win “John Wick” swag.

No word if Aaron Rodgers was a factor in the event making a stop at Lambeau, but the Packers quarterback has said he's a huge fan of the franchise. In an interview in April with Jason Wilde, Packers offensive tackle David Bakhtiari dropped Wick's name when asked what he was expecting from Rodgers this season.

There's even a 2017 episode of "Gridiron Heights," the animated YouTube series from Bleacher Report, that has Rodgers starring in a "John Wick" parody.

The Lambeau visit coincides with the release of “John Wick: Chapter 3 — Parabellum” on DVD, Blu-ray, 4K UHD and On Demand on Tuesday. The fourth film in the franchise is scheduled for theatrical release on May 21, 2021.
