John Wick 3: First photos of Keanu Reeves on set as filming begins

With John Wick currently on the run from every working assassin in the world, fans are feverishly excited for the sequel.

Filming has begun on the upcoming sequel, with cinematographer Dan Laustsen for posting a photo of Keanu Reeves as the titular character.

From the looks of things, Wick has made his way to the neon-lit streets of New York’s Chinatown where potential threats are likely around every corner.

Laustsen – who was recently nominated for an Oscar for The Shape of Water – confirmed production on John Wick: Chapter 3 began over the weekend, posting a photo of the movie’s clapperboard.

Speaking last year with The Independent, director Chad Stahelski hinting the upcoming sequel may be John Wick’s final outing.

“We are going to put in something about the High Table, how that all works,” he said. “We’re going to put in something about where John comes from, and where he wants to go. I don’t want to say too much more, but it will be a nice completion to Mr Wick’s journey.”

Asked whether the film would complete a trilogy, Stahelski said “In our minds, yes” adding that a TV show – which has now been confirmed to centre on The Continental – is also in development.

John Wick: Chapter 3 reaches cinemas 17 May 2019.
