Fans have been given a glimpse of what to expect from John Wick 3, the third and final chapter in Keanu Reeves’ gun-totting action movie revenge saga.
Details on the film’s plot and some of the characters set to return have emerged online and could end up raising a fair few eyebrows among fans of the franchise.
According to an exclusive report from ThatHashtageShow.com, John Wick 3 will see the titular hero going up against a Japanese crime syndicate headed up by actor Hiroyuki Sanada, whose previous credits include The Wolverine and Avengers 4.
The report also indicates that a young female assassin is set to be cast alongside Reeves.
Tilda Swinton is thought to be Reeves’ first choice for the role, though there is no official word on that particular bit of casting.
What has reportedly been confirmed, however, is that Laurence Fishburne will return as the Bowery King along with Common’s character, Cassian, and Ruby Rose’s character Ares.
That’s arguably the biggest surprise given that – SPOILER ALERT – both Cassian and Ares appeared to die in John Wick: Chapter 2.
Both are likely to be gunning for revenge against Wick in what most fans are expecting to be the third and final instalment in the John Wick movie franchise.
That won’t be the end of John Wick though, with plans already in place for the introduction of a John Wick TV series.
John Wick 3 will be directed by Chad Stahelski. loaded previously spoke to the director about his work on John Wick 2, smashing up old cars and whether or not the film is a spiritual sequel of sorts to The Matrix. You might be surprised by his answer to that one.
Due to arrive in cinemas on May 17, 2019, John Wick 3 is fast shaping up to be the perfect way to cap-off a fine action movie franchise.
