It has been reported that Oscar-winner Halle Berry is now an official member of the John Wick: Chapter 3 cast.

The third film in the series is now in production, for a 2019 release, with Keanu Reeves returning in the titular role, and Chad Stahelski back at the helm. Other returning cast members are said to include Laurence Fishburne as the Bowery King, Ian McShane as The Continental’s Winston, Common as Cassian, and Ruby Rose as Ares.

Chapter 3 (or John Wick 3: Parabellum, as it is titled on IMDb) will take place directly after the events of the second film, as a synopsis for the upcoming film puts John on the run in New York – where he was when Chapter 2 ended:

“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.”

With every assassin in the city out for the hefty bounty on John’s head, he will need all the help he can get – and fortunately for him, it’s rumoured that Berry’s character will be an ally.

A month ago, it was rumoured that Berry was circling the John Wick: Chapter 3, but the actress has finally made it official through a post on her Instagram account:

The Hollywood Reporter has also claimed that Berry will not be playing the part of the film’s villain, which aligns with earlier reports of her potential role. Not much is currently known about the character, however it has been speculated that she is a middle-aged mother with a small child.

John Wick: Chapter 3 is set for release on May 17th, 2019.
