Lions Gate has set the official date for third installment of the Keanu Reeves’ action John Wick franchise. John Wick: Chapter 3 will be in theaters May 17th, 2019.
John Wick introduced the world to Reeves playing the retired assassin forced out of retirement. Directed by former stunt man turned directors Derek Kolstad and Chad Stahelski, the heartfelt action movie was a surprise hit for the studio. The first installment grossed 88 million on 20 million dollar budget. John Wick: Chapter 2 doubled the box office take of the original movie.
John Wick has become one of Keanu Reeves iconic roles. The amount of bodies he drops as assassin driving by his own principles is over the top and pure fun. We will have to see if John Wick will be able to go toe with the Avengers 4 which is also set to be released in May 2019.
