Yayan Ruhian and Cecep Arif Rahman (The Raid film franchise) will be bringing even more action as professional killers that Wick has to fend off. Tiger Hu Chen (Man of Tai Chi) is also on board and set to exchange blows with Wick.
In Chapter 3:
‘John Wick (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.’
Laurence Fishburne, Ian McShane and Lance Reddick are reprising their roles from the previous films. Carrying on from their work on the previous John Wick films, the new instalment is written by Derek Kolstad, with Chad Stahelski directing.
John Wick: Chapter 3 is coming to theatres May 17, 2019.
