In a new first look released by Lionsgate, it was revealed that Halle Berry, known for playing Storm in X-Men, will be joining the cast for the third installment of John Wick. Berry is currently the most prominent actor to be added to the roster for John Wick: Chapter 3.
While not much is known about Halle Berry’s character, it has been disclosed that Berry will playing Sofia, an assassin coming to take down John Wick (Keanu Reeves). Although, it’s clear she’ll have some competition and won’t be the only assassin on the hunt after a global bounty was placed on Wick’s head in John Wick: Chapter 2.
In the first look at Berry’s character Sofia, Halle Berry can be seen walking what appears to be the halls of The Continental, clad all in leather and accompanied by a posse of hounds. The first look of Berry portraying the assassin Sofia can be seen below:
John Wick: Chapter 3 will be set after the events of John Wick: Chapter 2. After Wick killed an associate of the High Table inside The Continental, a bounty for $14 million has been placed on his head. Now that Wick has been “excommunicado” from The Continental, all of his privileges have been revoked, including access to The Continental’s underground resources, and he’ll be forced to escape New York all on his own.
Halle Berry will be joining a star-studded cast alongside Keanu Reeves, Ian McShane, Ruby Rose, Common, Lance Reddick, Laurence Fishburne, Asia Kate Dillon, Anjelica Huston, Mark Dacascos, Jason Mantzoukas, and Hiroyuki Sanada.
John Wick: Chapter 3 is currently filming and will premiere in theaters on May 17th, 2019!
