Halle Berry, Anjelica Huston, Asia Kate Dillon Join ‘John Wick: Chapter 3’
Somehow, John Wick: Chapter 3 just got even better. Sure, Keanu Reeves returning for a third round of tailored suits and blazing guns is exciting, but the rest of the cast is so good, they may just upstage him.
Reeves will be joined by Halle Berry, set to play the female lead in the third chapter of the assassin franchise. Berry will play a woman named Sofia, according to The Hollywood Reporter, and while there’s no further details yet, she’s not expected to be the villain. (That role is rumored to be filled by The Wolverine’s Hiroyuki Sanada.) Yes, friends, this means we’ll get to see Berry and Reeves slaughter bad dudes side-by-side. That’s not all, though.
THR also broke the news of the supporting cast. The third John Wick will feature Anjelica Huston as a character known as The Director, Billions star Asia Kate Dillon as The Adjudicator of the High Table, Jason Mantazoukas as the Tick Tock Man, and Mark Dacascos (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) as an assassin named Zero. As far as the baddies Reeves will face-off against, martial artists and actors Yayan Ruhian and Cecep Arif Rahman from The Raid films will play trained killers, alongside Man of Tai Chi‘ Tiger Hu Chen.
John Wick: Chapter 3 picks up where the second installment left off with John Wick on the run. Here’s the official synopsis:
John Wick (Keanu 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.
The sequel, which will be directed by Chad Stahelski, will also feature the return of characters played by Laurence Fishburne, Ian McShane, Common, Ruby Rose, and Lance Reddick. Prepare for assassin chaos when John Wick: Chapter 3 hits theaters May 17, 2019.
