John Wick: Chapter 3 Gets a Release Date

Save the date! The third chapter in the John Wick universe will arrive in theaters May 17, 2019.

The date marks the film series' first summer release. John Wick opened in October 2014, grossing $88 million at the worldwide box office, while John Wick: Chapter 2, which opened in February of this year, earned $171 million internationally.

And prospects for John Wick: Chapter 3 will be even higher.

The origin film saw Wick (Keanu Reeves) lose his wife, the puppy she gifted him, and a car he really cherished. In Chapter 2, Wick tried to leave the past behind (again) but got pulled back in for one last hit. But instead of evening out the score with the Russian mob, Wick dug himself a bigger--and global--hole.

Poor Wick. Will he ever be able to retire? Apparently not, which is good news for moviegoers.

While no plot details have been released, screenwriter Derek Kolstad, who wrote the first two installments, will pen the threequel. There’s no word yet on if John Wick: Chapter 2 director Chad Stahelski will helm the actioner.
