I have so much respect for #KeanuReeves and this franchise, it’s been my honor to be apart of it! Thank you @chadstahelski, our fearless director - I had the extreme pleasure of working along side your most amazingly talented @87elevenaction stunt crew, lead by @heidimoneymaker! She is hands down the BEST stunt woman working in the business today. They’ve all pushed me to new levels and forced me to work physically harder than I have ever before. This film reinforces that AGE is nothing but an insignificant number! My deepest respect and heartfelt thanks to the ENTIRE stunt team. I miss you already! And finally, a huge thank you to #BasilIwanyk and #ThunderRoadFilms, @lionsgate & the entire Moroccan film crew and a special thank you to #AndrewSimpson, @instinctwolves, all the dog trainers and #TaranButler @tarantactical, Jade and the gals...the pleasure was all mine and I’ll remember it always !❤️ @theicecreamgiant @mattberberi @jspider @bruceleeconcepcion @khalidghajji @danielgraham85 @eb_method @neeshnation @saratess @jacendaburkett @gsahyena
During a recent chat with Collider, Chad Stahelski, the director of John Wick 3: Parabellum, summed up the story with a few choice words: "Horses, dogs, cats, a raven, a bunch of pigeons, a motorcycle chase, car chase, Halle Berry, Laurence Fishburne, Ian McShane, Lance Reddick, shotguns and ninjas".
The full synopsis of the film is: "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 movie is set to be released on 16 May 2019.
