Last time we saw John Wick he was on the run for his life with a huge open contract on his head. It seems as if the film will carry on from almost exactly where the last left off.

Film company Lionsgate released a promo last month at CinemaCon that gave us a basic set-up for the action that we can expect in the new film.

It said: "John Wick (Keanu Reeves) is on the run for two reasons... he's being hunted for a global $14 million 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."

The new film will see John Wick 2 co-director Chad Stahelski return to direct, and whilst we don't have any other cast announcements outside of Keanu, it's probable that Laurence Fishburne, Lance Reddick, and Ian McShane will be back in their familiar roles from the previous films.

Stahelski has spoken about his aims for the movie to "go bigger" whilst keeping true to the John Wick mythology.

In an interview with Collider, he said: "We want, not so much to go bigger on the third one, but to show you more of the intricacies of the world.

"I feel like there are all these different subtleties that I skipped over in Number Two, that I'd like to go back to on and show you the inner workings of different parts of New York. So rather than massive set pieces, I'd like to show you cooler and more intricate ones.

"I think it would be a mistake budget wise and creatively to just go big and blow up a freeway. That's not our gig. That's a comic book or a Bond gig. We want to show you cool and intricate details."

Either way, the film will hit cinemas next May.
