Lionsgate released new photos from John Wick 3: Parabellum last week, but now we’re also getting a look at the new character played by Anjelica Huston (via Empire). The studio previously described her as “The Director,” but Reeves offers a bit more. “We’re trying to make it that there are different tribes, less nondescript assassins,” Reeves told the magazine. “Anjelica Huston is playing this Roma Ruska character.”
In this third installment of the adrenaline-fueled action franchise, super-assassin John Wick (Keanu Reeves) returns with a $14 million price tag on his head and an army of bounty-hunting killers on his trail. After killing a member of the shadowy international assassin’s guild, the High Table, John Wick is excommunicado, but the world’s most ruthless hit men and women await his every turn.
John Wick 3: Parabellum will introduce Halle Berry as “Sofia,” Anjelica Huston as “The Director” and Asia Kate Dillo as “The Adjudicator” of the High Table, Mark Dacascos as an assassin named “Zero,” and Jason Mantzoukas as the “Tick Tock Man.” Also joining the cast are Yayan Ruhian and Cecep Arif Rahman from The Raid film franchise as formidable professional killers that Wick has to face off against, as well as martial arts star Tiger Hu Chen from Man of Tai Chi.
John Wick 3: Parabellum, led by Reeves, will reunite Academy Award nominee Laurence Fishburne, Ian McShane, and Lance Reddick. Chad Stahelski is returning to direct and Thunder Road Pictures’ Basil Iwanyk and Erica Lee are producing in association with 87Eleven Productions. It will be released by Lionsgate’s Summit Entertainment label on May 17, 2019.
