I was the first to reveal on OmegaUnderground that John Wick 3 would spend a bunch of time during the film in the country of Morocco. This was confirmed by cast members Halle Berry and Said Taghmaoui, who have been shooting scenes there over the last couple of weeks.
Berry, who plays fellow assassin Sofia announced on Instagram a week ago that she has wrapped filming and penned a thank you message to everyone involved with the production.

It’s a wrap…CHEERS! A huge thank you to all the beautiful people of Morocco! Thank you for opening your hearts to me and making me feel so at home. #JohnWick3 has been a truly memorable experience! I have so much respect for #KeanuReeves and this franchise, it’s been my honor to be apart of it! Thank you @chadstahelski, our fearless director – I had the extreme pleasure of working along side your most amazingly talented @87elevenaction stunt crew, lead by @heidimoneymaker! She is hands down the BEST stunt woman working in the business today. They’ve all pushed me to new levels and forced me to work physically harder than I have ever before. This film reinforces that AGE is nothing but an insignificant number! My deepest respect and heartfelt thanks to the ENTIRE stunt team. I miss you already! And finally, a huge thank you to #BasilIwanyk and #ThunderRoadFilms, @lionsgate & the entire Moroccan film crew and a special thank you to #AndrewSimpson, @instinctwolves, all the dog trainers and #TaranButler @tarantactical, Jade and the gals…the pleasure was all mine and I’ll remember it always !❤️ @theicecreamgiant @mattberberi @jspider @bruceleeconcepcion @khalidghajji @danielgraham85 @eb_method @neeshnation @saratess @jacendaburkett @gsahyena
It should be noted that Parabellum was only the working title during the filming, I’ve seen plenty of sites incorrectly using the title John Wick 3: Parabellum for the sequel. It’s officially John Wick: Chapter 3 at the moment as this title was used on a recent teaser poster from the studio and it’s also being used on the film’s the official Twitter account.
The rest of the cast consists of Lance Reddick, Ian McShane, Anjelica Huston, Laurence Fishburne, Asia Kate Dillon, Mark Dacascos, Jason Mantzoukas, Yayan Ruhian, Cecep Arif Rahman, Tiger Hu Chen, Robin Lord Taylor, and possibly Hiroyuki Sanada (unconfirmed).
Common recently revealed that his character Cassian would not be returning.
John Wick (Keanu Reeves) is on the run for two reasons … he’s being hunted for a global $14 million dollar open contract on his life, and for breaking a central rule: Taking a life on Continental Hotel grounds. The victim was a member of the High Table who ordered the open contract. John should have already been executed, except the Continental’s manager, Winston, has given him a one-hour grace period before he’s “excommunicado” – membership revoked, banned from all services, and cut off from other members. John uses the service industry to stay alive as he fights and kills his way out of New York City.
Lionsgate has set the release date for John Wick: Chapter 3 for May 17th, 2019.
