The official synopsis for Chapter 3 is as follows:
John Wick 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.
Lionsgate also announced that Laurence Fishburne, Ian McShane and Lance Reddick will be reprising their roles and The Hollywood Reporter has added in their report on this casting announcement that Tiger Hu Chen, Yayan Ruhian and Cecep Arif Rahman will also be appearing in Chapter Three as professional killers that John Wick has to face off against. Character details for the cast are being kept under wraps, though we know the names of whom they’ll be playing. Halle Berry (whose recent credits include Kidnap and Kingsman: The Golden Circle) will be playing the role of Sofia, Asia Kate Dillon (whose credits include Orange Is The New Black and Billions) will be playing the role of The Adjudicator of the High Table, Anjelica Huston (whose credits include Transparent and Isle of Dogs) will be playing the role of The Director of the High Table, Mark Dacascos (whose credits include Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D and Lucifier) will be playing the role of a assassin named Zero and Jason Mantzoukas (whose credits include The House and The Big Mouth) will be playing the role of Tick Tock Man.
John Wick: Chapter 3 is written by Derek Kolstad, Chris Collins, Marc Abrams and Shay Hatten, with Chad Stahelski returning once again to direct. Principal Photography has already begun in New York and production will move to Morocco later in the year.
John Wick: Chapter 3 is scheduled for cinematic release on the 17th May 2019.
