Premise[edit]

Still on the run following his assassination of Santino D'Antonio in The Continental, and with a $14 million global contract on him, John Wick (Keanu Reeves) is banned from every Continental service, which forces him to fight his way out of New York City with the help of a hitwoman (Halle Berry) who still trusts him.

Cast[edit]

Saïd Taghmaoui, Jerome Flynn and Tobias Segal have been cast in unspecified roles, and Boban Marjanović, Arjon Bashiri, Yayan Ruhian, Cecep Arif Rahman, Tiger Chen, Vladimir and Vlado Mihailov, Danish Bhatt, and Candace M. Smith have been cast as assassins.

In January 2018, it was reported that Stahelski would return to direct with Hiroyuki Sanada in talks to join the cast.[3] Later, it was revealed that Ian McShane, Laurence Fishburne, and Lance Reddick would reprise their roles from previous John Wick films.[4] In May 2018, Halle Berry, Anjelica Huston, Asia Kate Dillon, Mark Dacascos, Jason Mantzoukas, Yayan Ruhian, Cecep Arif Rahman and Tiger Chen joined the cast.[5][6][7] In November 2018, Said Taghmaoui confirmed his involvement in the film.[8]

Filming began in May 2018 in New York City and Montreal, along with the additional filming locations of Russia, Morocco, and Spain.[4][9][10]
