The script for John Wick 3 is currently being written, according to director Chad Stahelski
John Wick: Chapter 2 is now available on Digital HD and will be out on 4K, Blu-ray, and DVD on June 13. Though we knew another film was in the planning stages, we now have some more info on its status. In an interview with Collider, director Chad Stahelski said that the script is currently being written for John Wick 3.
“We’re currently in the middle of writing it right now,” he tells the outlet. “…It’s more of a how fast can we get our sh** together. But I would assume that if not by the end of this year, the beginning of next year.”
In John Wick 2, legendary hitman John Wick (Keanu Reeves) is forced back out of retirement by a former associate plotting to seize control of a shadowy international assassins’ guild. Bound by a blood oath to help him, John travels to Rome where he squares off against some of the world’s deadliest killers. The film also stars Common, Laurence Fishburne, Riccardo Scamarcio, Ruby Rose, Lance Reddick, Bridget Moynahan, Franco Nero, John Leguizamo, and Ian McShane.
So, will Stahelski direct John Wick 3? He told the site he’s “super involved” with the film, but he wouldn’t confirm a directing role.
“Currently I’m acting as prep director,” he explained. “Hopefully everything will work out time wise. Of course — I would love to… If you really watch the first and second one, there’s only one place it can go — so I’ll let you sort that out.”
