Filming of Keanu Reeves’ John Wick 3 – Parabellum – is reportedly over, and Halle Berry is very happy with the outcome.
Halle Berry, who is joining Reeves in John Wick 3, took to Instagram to reveal that she had wrapped up filming for the movie in Morocco. She captioned a shot of a glass of wine with: “It’s a wrap…CHEERS! A huge thank you to all the beautiful people of Morocco! Thank you for opening your hearts to me and making me feel so at home. #JohnWick3 has been a truly memorable experience!”

It’s a wrap…CHEERS! A huge thank you to all the beautiful people of Morocco! Thank you for opening your hearts to me and making me feel so at home. #JohnWick3 has been a truly memorable experience! I have so much respect for #KeanuReeves and this franchise, it’s been my honor to be apart of it! Thank you @chadstahelski, our fearless director – I had the extreme pleasure of working along side your most amazingly talented @87elevenaction stunt crew, lead by @heidimoneymaker! She is hands down the BEST stunt woman working in the business today. They’ve all pushed me to new levels and forced me to work physically harder than I have ever before. This film reinforces that AGE is nothing but an insignificant number! My deepest respect and heartfelt thanks to the ENTIRE stunt team. I miss you already! And finally, a huge thank you to #BasilIwanyk and #ThunderRoadFilms, @lionsgate & the entire Moroccan film crew and a special thank you to #AndrewSimpson, @instinctwolves, all the dog trainers and #TaranButler @tarantactical, Jade and the gals…the pleasure was all mine and I’ll remember it always !❤️ @theicecreamgiant @mattberberi @jspider @bruceleeconcepcion @khalidghajji @danielgraham85 @eb_method @neeshnation @saratess @jacendaburkett @gsahyena
Berry announced her involvement in John Wick 3 earlier this year as she posted an image of a note written on the letterhead of the fictional The Continental hotel (a primary location involved in the John Wick franchise, and noted neutral zone and hangout for assassins), reading “See you next year, Mr. Wick.” Halle Berry will be playing an killer for hire, and old flame of John Wick, named Sofia.

The synopsis of John Wick 3 revolves around the heavily endangered life of John Wick (Keanu Reeves) who is on the run for two reasons; being hunted for a global 14-million-dollar open contract on his life, and for breaking a central rule – taking life on Continental Hotel grounds (the victim was a member of the High Table).
John should have already been instantly executed for breaking the rules, except the Continental’s manager, Winston (Ian McShane), gave him a one-hour grace period before he’s “excommunicado” – membership revoked, banned from all services, and cut off from other members. In Parabellum John is on the run, desperately trying to stay alive as he fights and kills his way out of New York City.
One antagonist John Wick won’t be facing when he returns to screen next year is Cassian, the assassin played by Common in the second film. In a recent interview, Common confirmed that his character — who was left to an uncertain fate in John Wick: Chapter 2 — wouldn’t be back for another round with Reeves’ titular hitman. “I’m not in the third part, but I could say that I really loved being a part of John Wick 2 and it was an amazing experience,” Common said. “Working with Keanu and Chad [Stahelski], they’re just phenomenal. Challenged and really passionate about the stuff, and I can say that three is going to be incredible, though, I’ll tell you that much.”
Parabellum, now in post-production, will be directed by Chad Stahelski, with the script from Derek Kolstad, Chris Collins & Marc Abrams, and Shay Hatten. Besides stars Keanu Reeves and Berry, the John Wick cast will see Ian McShane, Laurence Fishburne, Lance Reddick, and Ruby Rose reprise their roles from previous films. New additions to the franchise include Asia Kate Dillon, Anjelica Huston, Mark Dacascos, and Jason Mantzoukas.
John Wick 3 is set to be Released May 17th, 2019.
