JOHN WICK 3 Details Have Emerged
Splashers, it is with great pleasure that I can tell you Keanu Reeves and the rest of the John Wick family will begin principal photography for John Wick 3 on March 1, 2018. And, Chad Stahelski, who co-directed the first film before going solo on the second, is now officially on board for the third film. Here’s what That Hashtag Show was able to find out regarding the next exciting chapter for Mr. Wick:
John Wick 3 will feature a few familiar faces with Cassian (Common) and the Bowery King (Laurence Fishburne) and Ares (Ruby Rose) set to return but the film is going to introduce some new faces as well, and we know who one of them will be. The film’s main antagonist, said to be the head of a Japanese crime syndicate, will be played Hiroyuki Sanada (The Wolverine, Avengers 4). John Wick 3 will represent a reunion for Reeves and Sanada as the pair starred together in the 2013 film 47 Ronin.
We’ve also been told that there is a yet to be cast female role opposite Reeves. The studio is searching for an actress in her late 20s to early 40s and is open to diverse casting. While we’ve heard that Reeves is keen to bring actress Tilda Swinton into the John Wick franchise, this may NOT be that role.
John Wick 3 is set to debut in theaters May 17, 2019, which means we’ve got a good year filled with photos, trailers and everything else to salivate over. Who’s excited for 2019?!
