Halley Berry will join the cast of John Wick 3, the Hollywood actress announced on her Instagram account on Monday. Berry plays a character named Sofia in the movie, which will be released on May 17, 2019.
The John Wick films trace the exploits of Keanu Reeves’s deadly hitman. Chad Stahelski, who co-directed the first breakout movie with David Leitch in 2014 and assumed solo charge of the sequel in 2017, will be back in the saddle for the third film.
In the first part, Wick avenges the death of his pet dog by wiping out the Russian mafia that had previously employed him. In the sequel, Wick goes on the run after a bounty is placed on his head. The new movie sees him taking to his heels again. “The story picks up after the events of Chapter 2, which sees Wick, a former assassin who tried and failed to live the quiet life, with a $14 million price tag on his head and an army of bounty-hunting killers on his trail,” Hollywood Reporter said. “After killing a member of the shadowy international assassin’s guild, the High Table, John Wick is excommunicado, but the world’s most ruthless hitmen and women await his every turn.”
Berry joins a cast that includes recurring cast members Ian McShane, Lance Reddick, Ruby Rose, Laurence Fishburne and Common. Also recruited for the latest movie are Anjelica Houston, Asia Kate Dillon, Mark Dacascos, and Jason Mantzoukas.
