Thanks to Empire Magazine, we’ve got a look at Mark Dacascos (Brotherhood of the Wolf) as the lead villain Zero, who will be on the hunt for Keanu Reeves’ titular hitman in the upcoming action thriller sequel John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum.
“He’s a huge John Wick fan,” Dacascos tells Empire, revealing that his character Zero has respect and admiration for his fellow assassin. “So you’ll see an essence of, ‘I have to kill you, but you know if I didn’t have to do that, we’d be besties!’”
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 – Parabellum is set for release on May 17th 2019 and reunites Keanu Reeves with director Chad Stahelski and also features returning cast members Ian McShane, Laurence Fishburne, and Lance Reddick alongside newcomers Hiroyuki Sanada (47 Ronin, The Wolverine), Anjelica Huston (Isle of Dogs), Halle Berry (Kingsman: The Golden Circle), Asia Kate Dillon (Billions), Mark Dacascos (Lucky Day), Jerome Flynn (Game of Thrones), Jason Mantzoukas (The House), Tiger Hu Chen (Man of Tai Chi), Robin Lord Taylor (Gotham) and The Raid’s Yayan Ruhian and Cecep Arif Rahman.
