Lionsgate is already moving forward with John Wick Chapter 3, especially since this will be the final chapter in the John Wick trilogy. Read on…
Keanu Reeves stated:
“You know, I had the chance to work with her, I was in two films with her, but had the chance to work with her once, I’m onboard with that. We run into each other once in a while socially out there in the world. She’s a remarkable person and actress, so I’m all aboard with that!”
There is no word as of yet if writer Derek Kolstad is penning a role for the actress, or if she would even be on board with the idea.
If Tilda Swinton agrees to doing the movie, this will be the second star Reeves has brought on to star in the John Wick Franchise. In John Wick Chapter he included his Matrix star Laurence Fishburne. The chemistry was Hollywood gold. Which makes us believe that Keanu is gunning for a repeat with Swinton.
She is the perfect female to be added to the film. It would be great to see Carrie-Anne Moss jumping on the third installment as an one of the main assain alongside Common to kill Wick. Common was perfection in the film and we are hoping they bring him back since they didn’t show him die in Chapter 2.
With this movie already set to be the final chapter of this trilogy, it wouldn’t be surprising if the studio pulled out all the stops to ensure this is an even bigger hit that the first two movies. They’re already taking the first step by giving this a sequel a summer release date.
Expect Lionsgate to take it over the top for John Wick 3 since it will be hitting the big screen on May 17, 2019. May 2019 is a HUGE month since the release of Marvel’s Avengers 4 hits on May 3, 2019, and TriStar’s The Rosie Project drops on May 10. But it’s the movies that follow John Wick Chapter 3 that could be direct competition. See there is two highly-anticipated projects on May 24, 2019, Disney’s live-action Aladdin remake and Warner Bros.’ Minecraft adaptation.
We’ve also heard Samuel L. Jackson may be joining John Wick 3. It’s been a minute since Swinton asked in “mock frustration,” Where is Mr. Keanu Reeves by the way? I would like to see him.”
We’ll keep you posted…
