With filming now underway on John Wick: Chapter 3, Lionsgate has announced several new additions to the cast of the third instalment in the hit action series.
Set to star alongside the returning Keanu Reeves are Anjelica Huston (Isle of Dogs), Halle Berry (Kingsman: The Golden Circle), Asia Kate Dillon (Billions), Mark Dacascos (Lucky Day), Jason Mantzoukas (The House), Tiger Hu Chen (Man of Tai Chi) and The Raid’s Yayan Ruhian and Cecep Arif Rahman.
Huston is set to play The Director, with Berry as Sofia, Dillon as The Adjudicator, Dacascos and Mantzoukas as assassins Zero and Tick Tock Man. Tiger Hu Chen, Yayan Ruhian and Cecep Arif Rahman will also play professional hitman who Reeves’ Wick finds himself going up against.
John Wick: Chapter 3 reunites Reeves with director Chad Stahelski and screenwriter Derek Kolstad. Also returning to the cast are Ian McShane (Winston), Common (Cassian), Laurence Fishburne (The Bowery King) and Lance Reddick (Charon), with Hiroyuki Sanada (47 Ronin, The Wolverine) as a new villain.
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.
John Wick: Chapter 3 is set for release on May 17th 2019.
