Earlier this month, it was reported that shooting had begun for the movie when Academy Award nominated cinematographer Dan Laustsen shared some snaps to his Instagram page, showing what appears to be Keanu Reeves on set. Exciting.
Although the plot is being kept under-wraps for the time being, the first official synopsis reads: "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."
Director Chad Stahelski told Collider how he plans to keep the third movie true to the John Wick. 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 [chapter three] 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."
Sounds interesting. Not too long to wait, eh?
