Keanu Reeves' 'John Wick: Chapter 3' finds a release date

The official release date for John Wick: Chapter Three has been revealed by Lionsgate.

Since the blockbuster results, Lionsgate executives expressed their interest in planning for the third film. Expect John Wick: Chapter Three to deal with the fallout of that cliffhanger, hopefully with plenty of awesome fight scenes and world building the first two installments were known for. The studio is expected to release the third installment on May 19, 2019.

In case you're not familiar with the franchise, why not indulge yourselves with a back-to-back double-whammy screening of both the first film and Chapter 2 (they can be digitally downloaded together)? No plot details about the upcoming threequel have been unveiled just yet.

The R-rated action series stars Reeves as a no-holds-barred ex-hitman, who comes out of retirement to get retribution on gangsters, who took away everything he loved.

On the other hand, Chapter 2 picked up with bounty hunters. Common's character is also likely still alive so we could see a team-up between him and Reeves as Wick attempts to navigate his way through New York City trying to survive the hit on his head. The sequel, helmed by Stahelski, grossed $171 million globally upon its release in February of this year. It can be recalled that he also penned the first two films.
