John Wick: Chapter 3 plot details revealed!
Keanu Reeves’ latest action icon is set to return very soon with the in-development John Wick: Chapter 3 coming in 2019. Ahead of the Lionsgate panel at CinemaCon later today, Collider has the first details on the plot for the upcoming film, which reads as follows:
“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 to arrive May 17, 2019 with director Chad Stahelski set to return behind the camera. Common, Laurence Fishburne, and Ruby Rose are expected to reprise their roles in the sequel with Hiroyuki Sanada (The Wolverine) reportedly playing the villain.
The world of John Wick will continue to expand as well beyond the third film with the spin-off TV series The Continental in the works at STARZ with acclaimed writer/producer Chris Collins (Sons of Anarchy, The Wire) executive producing; and with the spin-off feature film Ballerina which follows a child assassin in the world of John Wick.
