John Wick: Chapter 3 is currently filming, and everyone’s excited about the conclusion to the action-franchise. But now a piece of casting news should build even more anticipation.
Halle Berry posted a picture on Instagram confirming that she will star alongside Keanu Reeves in the new John Wick movie. In a separate post on Instagram, Berry stated that her character’s name will be Sofia, but revealed no other information.
At the end of John Wick: Chapter Two, Wick (played by Reeves) broke a major rule by killing a member of the assassins’ guild, the High Table. He is now on the run with a $14 million price tag on his head, and probably all of the world’s top assassins chasing after him.
Sources told the Hollywood Reporter that Berry will not play a villain in the third movie, which perhaps implies that she is not one of the assassins chasing after Mr. Wick. Perhaps she will be an ally trying to help him get the bounty off his head, or maybe just an innocent bystander who gets caught up in the mess.
Whatever role she’s in, we know it will be great because no one’s ever said a movie had too much Halle Berry in it.
