Lionsgate is working hard on the presentation this afternoon at CinemaCon, they’ve released the first official synopsis for John Wick: Chapter 3. After Chapter 2 of the franchise, John Wick is on the run after being dismissed from The Continental with a contract on his head.
This is one highly action-packed franchise and I am super excited for this next chapter. Here’s the official synopsis:
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.
John Wick: Chapter 2 director Chad Stahelski is coming back for the third movie and the script is written by David Kolstad, who wrote the first two movies.
John Wick: Chapter 3 is set to hit theaters on May 17, 2019.
