The fugitive assassin John Wick, starred by Keanu Reeves, will be running off into New York City after killing someone within the Continental Hotel grounds. The third film of John Wick movie franchise, titled “Parabellum” which means “prepare for war”, will see Wick with a $ 14 million bounty in his head, and every assassin will want a piece of it.
So who will be the new enemies and allies in the third film? The official John Wick Movie Instagram posted about the involvement of Halle Berry in the new chapter and will play a character named Sofia. The newest trailer just released this year showcasing Halle Berry being bad-ass while shooting enemies. It seems like she’s an ally of John and will help him escape out of New York. Sofia and John also share the same affinity for dogs. Sofia owns two Belgian Malinois dogs and seen fighting together with her in the trailer.
In one of the official JW3 Instagram post, actors Laurence Fishburne (as Bowery King) and Ian McShane (as Winston) stand side by side with an “Old friends. New enemies.” caption. The two characters were included in the previous chapters and were allies to Wick. But seeing these two powerful characters in one screen might portend either bad luck or new hope for John Wick.
These new characters will reveal some people working in the organization. The veteran actress Anjelica Huston will be playing the role as “The Director”; the person responsible for Wick’s upbringing and protection. In the trailer, the director is trying to warn and help Wick but nothing is sure if she’s an ally. Mark Dacascos will play the role of Zero and Asia Kate Dillion as “The Adjudicator”. These two characters are associated with the criminal council known as the High Table. They can be seen fighting against Wick in the trailer.
Keanu Reeves’ co-star in 2013 movie ‘The 47 Ronin’, Hiroyuki Sanada joins the film as well. He plays the role as the primary villain. Speculations arise that Sanada’s role is the head of Japanese crime syndicate and might be a big obstruction to John Wick’s escape out of New York.
