And she or he’ll be joined by two notable figures from the Wick world – studio Lionsgate has introduced that Ian McShane will make an look as Winston, supervisor of the Continental Lodge. Collider, in the meantime, has found one thing it in all probability hoped would keep quiet for now – Keanu Reeves is on board as Wick himself.
With Len Wiseman within the director’s chair and John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum co-writer Shay Hatten on script obligation, the brand new film will give attention to the Ballerina character glimpsed briefly (and there performed by Unity Phelan) in Parabellum and tracks a younger murderer who seeks revenge towards the individuals who killed her household, which feels very a lot a Wick-style story.
“We’re thrilled to have Ian McShane becoming a member of us for a pivotal position in Ballerina“, says producer Basil Iwanyk. “He’s been such an integral a part of the franchise because the unique John Wick. It’s been enjoyable to have him on this journey because the Wick universe expands.”
Reeves, in fact, and McShane will each even be again on our screens earlier than that, for John Wick: Chapter 4, due for launch on 23 March subsequent yr.
