John Wick: Chapter 3 is just a year away from hitting theaters, and according to Deadline, the film is including two formidable women to their cast of actors. Both Halle Berry and Anjelica Huston are joining the cast of Lionsgate’s latest (and possibly final?) installment of their hit contract killers franchise. Berry and Huston will be joining the returning Keanu Reeves, Laurence Fishburne, Ian McShane and Lance Reddick, who are all returning for the Chad Stahelski-directed film.
So who are these actors going to be playing? So far, we only have their character names as clues. Halle Berry will be playing a character named “Sofia.” The details around Berry's character are being kept under wraps, but it is being reported that she is not going to be a villain in the film. Halle Berry announced her involvement with John Wick: Chapter 3 with the following Instagram post:
Angelica Huston will be playing someone known as “The Director,” which possibly suggest someone who is the head of the criminal High Table organization of contract killers. Also joining the film's cast as part of the shadowy world of the contract killers are Orange Is the New Black’s Asia Kate Dillon as “The Adjudicator” of the High Table; Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s Mark Dacascos as an assassin code-named “Zero;” and Brooklyn Nine-Nine's Jason Mantzoukas as someone called the “Tick Tock Man.”
This latest installment finds John Wick on the run with a $14 million price tag on his head, and an army of bounty-hunting killers hot on his trail. After killing a member of the shadowy international assassin’s guild the High Table in Chapter 2, John Wick is now excommunicado. But the world’s most ruthless hit men and women await his every turn. John Wick: Chapter 3 is set to debut in theaters worldwide on May 17, 2019 release.
