The upcoming action sequel John Wick: Chapter 3 is currently in production, and last week the first teaser was released to celebrate its arrival in a year’s time. Keanu Reeves is obviously returning as the reluctant assassin, and now various members of the supporting cast have been revealed by the movie’s official Twitter account.
Three of the announcements will be no surprise to fans of the previous two movies. Ian McShane, Lance Reddick, and Laurence Fishburne are set to reprise their roles as Winston, Charon, and the Bowery King respectively. McShane and Reddick have been in the series since 2014’s John Wick, while Fishburne joined for John Wick: Chapter 2 in 2017.
There are also five new names in the cast. Halle Berry (Catwoman, X-Men) will play a character called Sofia, with Asia Kate Dillon (Orange is the New Black) as The Adjudicator, Mark Dacascos (Cradle 2 the Grave) as Zero, Jason Mantzoukas (Brooklyn Nine-Nine, The Good Place) as Tick Tock Man, and Angelica Huston (Isle of Dogs) as The Director. We don’t know exactly who these new characters are, but let’s face it, they all have seriously cool names.
John Wick: Chapter 3 is directed by Chad Stahelski, who helmed Chapter 2 and co-directed the first movie. Last year, Stahelski spoke about his plans for John Wick: Chapter 3. “We want, not so much to go bigger on the third one, but to show you more of the intricacies of the world,” he said. “I feel like there are all these different subtleties that I skipped over in part 2, that I’d like to go back to [with part 3] and show you the inner workings of different parts of New York.”
Development of the long-rumored John Wick TV spin-off The Continental was also confirmed by Starz in January. The channel’s president Chris Albrecht said that the show will “include the thunderous fight sequences and intensely staged shootouts between professional assassins and their targets that fans have come to expect in the John Wick movie franchise as well as introducing some new, darkly compelling characters who inhabit this underground world.” The Continental does not yet have a premiere date.
