With a third John Wick picture currently in development, we’ve finally got our first solid plot details for the threequel.
As revealed by Collider, the early synopsis for John Wick: Chapter 3 reads 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.
With Keanu Reeves once again kicking all kinds of ass as the titular Wick, John Wick: Chapter 3 is currently booked in for a May 17th, 2019 release, with Laurence Fishburne, Ruby Rose and Common all expected to be back in action. On the villain front, The Wolverine’s Hiroyuki Sanada is reportedly playing the ‘big bad’.
