The third chapter in the John Wick franchise has been confirmed. Start the clock: there’s 20 months to go until we get more Keanu Reeves on-screen shredding.
International distributor Lionsgate has confirmed to the Hollywood Reporter that the third movie will be the first to get a US summer release, a time usually reserved for big-budget flicks expected to make bank.
Collider makes the point that that the third Wick flick will come a fortnight after the new Avengers and a week before Minecraft and Aladdin — all quite different films, but all ones we’re excited to see. Director Chad Stahelski said back in May that John Wick 3 was in the middle of writing, but hadn’t been greenlit for production by a studio yet; it isn’t clear who’ll be directing just yet.
John Wick 3 will be out on May 17, 2019 internationally. There’s no word just yet on an Australian release date; we’ll keep our cards close to our chest on that one after John Wick 2. [Hollywood Reporter]
