The studio didn’t comment on whether Reeves will reprise his titular role.
Also starring Laurence Fishburne, Ian McShane, Lance Reddick and Halle Berry, the Chad Stahelski-directed John Wick 3 starts off with Wick having a $14 million price tag on his head and an army of bounty-hunting killers on his trail. After killing a member of the shadowy international assassin’s guild the High Table, Wick is excommunicado, but the world’s most ruthless hit men and women await his every turn.
