EntertainmentWeekly has revealed some new images and details from the third John Wick movie and reaffirmed the title is indeed simply John Wick: Chapter 3. The third installment opens directly after the events of John Wick: Chapter 2, with John on the run. He’ll eventually run into Halle Berry’s Sofia as the two share a history together that will be revealed in the film which is being considered an origin of sorts for Wick. They’re also promising a hefty body count compared to the previous films, which is saying a lot.
Director and producer Chad Stahelski seems to have backtracked from previous chatter of wrapping things up this upcoming film as he seems open to making John Wick: Chapter 4. I’m sure it’ll depend on the success of this next one and if Keanu Reeves is game for it.
Stahelski reveals that he would happily make a fourth John Wick film if the audience enjoys this movie, but he isn’t counting his chickens yet. “We did the first one and were like, ‘They’re going to laugh at us,’” he says. “This one, I’m already looking for janitorial jobs.”
A fourth movie could fit nicely alongside the spin-off Ballerina, expected to be set up in Wick 3 via set photos featuring ballerinas and a television series on Starz focusing on the Los Angeles branch of The Continental.
John Wick: Chapter 3 is set for release by Lionsgate for May 17th, 2019.
