Lionsgate has finally given us a good look at the third film in the John Wick franchise titled John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum as they’ve dropped the first trailer today.
The cast consists of Keanu Reeves, Halle Berry, Laurence Fishburne, Mark Dacascos, Asia Kate Dillion, Lance Reddick, Anjelica Huston, Said Taghmaoui, Jerome Flynn, Jason Mantzoukas, Tobias Segal, Robin Lord Taylor, Yayan Ruhian, Tiger Hu Chen, Cecep Arif Rahman, and Randall Duk Kim.
Its script was penned by creator Derek Kolstad along with Shay Hatten, Chris Collins, and Marc Abrams.
In this third installment of the adrenaline-fueled action franchise, super-assassin John Wick (Keanu Reeves) returns with a $14 million price tag on his head and an army of bounty-hunting killers on his trail. After killing a member of the shadowy international assassin’s guild, the High Table, John Wick is excommuincado, but the world’s most ruthless hit men and women await his every turn.
While it’s expected we’ll see spin-offs like Ballerina and the series The Continental, it’s unknown at this point if we will see more John Wick installments, despite director Chad Stahelski suggesting if Chapter 3 is successful he’ll “happily” keep making them.
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.”
Stahelski is currently mulling over his next project which includes a reboot of the Highlander franchise at Lionsgate.
John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum is set for release on May 17th.
