John Wick 3 is happening, I can confirm that. And thank goodness because I am slightly obsessed with the franchise. The director of the original film, Chad Stahelski, revealed some exciting news regarding the third installment. And I’ve got it inside!
Stahelski spoke with the website Collider and revealed some awesome news. “Yeah — we’re currently in the middle of writing it right now.” Woo-hoo! I don’t want to ruin the sequel, but if you’ve seen it, then you know it ends on a cliffhanger. See, I didn’t ruin it for the late-comers.
When asked what time fans can expect to see the third installment in theaters, Chad replied, “I would assume that if not by the end of this year, the beginning of next year.” The end of this year? Merry Christmas to me!
And as for details on the script…well, this is what he said:
We want, not so much to go bigger on the third one, but to show you more of the intricacies of the world… I feel like there are all these different subtleties that I skipped over in Number Two, that I’d like to go back to on [chapter three] and show you the inner workings of different parts of New York.
I’d like to know if Common died? I have so many questions but I guess I and every fan awaiting John Wick 3 will have to wait.
We’re very comfortable with where we want [John Wick] to go in the third one and what Keanu wants to do. If you really watch the first and second one, there’s only one place it can go — so I’ll let you sort that out.
