There’s no trailer yet but there is a new working title and cool behind-the-scenes images from the next chapter of the trigger-happy John Wick saga.
The latest candid Instagram photos from the set comes complements of the film’s cinematographer, Dan Laustsen.
The man in charge of making the film ‘pop’ on screen posted the photos from day one and two of shooting. In the latest one we see Keanu Reeves standing alone in what appears to be Chinatown at dusk.
Not much else is given away but based on the dark and grimy atmosphere you can bet there’ll be ominous danger lurking.
Meanwhile the film’s cinematographer also revealed the second sequel’s working title as John Wick 3: Parabellum.
Those who know their firearms will know that ‘parabellum’ is an alternative name given to the semi-automatic Luger handgun.
Based on this theory alone, we can confirm that there will probably be guns in this movie too. Probably.
But wait, there’s even more good news for Keanu fans…and uh, Matrix fans.
Director Chad Stahelski revealed to Express last year that they were working on bringing Carrie-Anne Moss into the John Wick universe – that’s Trinity for those who were around in 1999.
Stahelski told the paper, “We saw Carrie-Anne at the premiere [of John Wick 2]. She was nice enough to come and pay homage, which was awesome.”
“So I got to see Keanu, Laurence and Carrie-Anne all in the same meeting.”
“I’d love to get Carrie-Anne Moss, she’s amazing. With somebody like that you could reinvigorate Trinity.”
“We’re still working on the script right now, but she’s amazing, she awesome.”
John Wick 3: Parabellum will arrive in theatres on May 17, 2019. If you can’t wait you can check out the film’s synopsis below.
John Wick (Keanu Reeves) is on the run for two reasons… he’s being hunted for a global $14 million dollar open contract on his life, and for breaking a central rule: taking a life on Continental Hotel grounds. The victim was a member of the High Table who ordered the open contract. John should have already been executed, except the Continental’s manager, Winston, has given him a one-hour grace period before he’s “Excommunicado” – membership revoked, banned from all services and cut off from other members. John uses the service industry to stay alive as he fights and kills his way out of New York City.
