We know that Keanu Reeves is returning for ‘John Wick: Chapter 3‘ we also know that director Chad Stahelski will return as well, which means the original core from the first film is still in place. That’s always huge for a franchise.
The first movie in the series made over $85 million at the box office and really took off once it was released online. The second film made over $170 million at the box office against a budget of just $40 million. It’s safe to say the studio’s decision to make a second film was a smart move.
But will the success continue for Chapter 3? We’ll just have to wait and see. It was reported this week that Halle Berry has signed on to star opposite of Reeves in this upcoming third installment.
The details surrounding her character are being kept secret, but insiders say she will not be playing the villain.
“The story picks up after the events of Chapter 2, which finds Wick, a former assassin who tried and failed to live the quiet life, with a $14 million price tag on his head and an army of bounty-hunting killers on his trail. After killing a member of the shadowy international assassin’s guild, the High Table, John Wick is excommunicado,’ but the world’s most ruthless hit men and women await his every turn.”
John Wick: Chapter 3 will hit theaters May 17, 2019.
