With John Wick: Chapter 3 currently in production, more actors are being secured for roles in the film. Not only are regulars like Keanu Reeves, Ian McShane, and Lance Reddick are coming back for the next entry in this series, there will also be several new cast members that will be introduced. Among the new cast members are Halle Berry, Anjelica Huston, Jason Mantzoukas, Mark Dacascos, and Orange is the New Black star Asia Kate Dillon.
Berry will be playing the character of Sofia, who will be the female lead for the film. In addition, Huston will be playing a mysterious figure known as The Director and Dillon will be playing The Adjudicator of the High Table. Furthermore, Mantzoukas will be the Tick Tock Man and Dacascos will be an assassin named Zero.
The movie will be a direct continuation of Chapter 2 as John Wick now has a group of bounty-hunters after him with $14 million on his head. This is because the ending of that movie sees him as “excommunicato” from the High Table, which serves as the guild for assassins like him. Not much is known about these characters other than their names, so we shall see what purpose they serve to the narrative once more information is revealed.
What do you think about these actors being cast in the next installment of the John Wick series? Be sure to tweet your thoughts at @superbromovies and stay tuned for more John Wick: Chapter 3 news.
