John Wick: Chapter Three release date set for 2019
Lionsgate announced today that the John Wick: Chapter Three release date has been set for May 17, 2019. Lionsgate’s Summit Entertainment will distribute the film, again starring Keanu Reeves in the title role. Surprisingly, no other movie has been set for that date yet.
What is no surprise, however, is that a third John Wick film is coming. The first film grossed $88 million worldwide ($43 million domestically and $45.7 million internationally) in 2014, and that was topped by the second film earlier this year with $171.5 million worldwide ($92 million domestically and $79.5 million internationally).
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.
