A warning to indie action-movie aficionados out there who are grateful for the respite from tentpole franchises: Your sanctuary is not safe. A third John Wick movie is in the works, franchise director Chad Stahelski told Collider. The portent of a John Wick 3 comes before John Wick’s first sequel has even been released. For now, the prospective third installment in the very, very bloody journey of Keanu Reeves’s hit man is still in early days and is not a 100 percent lock. Stahelski explained: “The studio has asked us to put our heads together and see if we can come up with something … We’ve got some ideas.” Somewhere out there, a little mole-rat-looking pup is opening his pudgy eyes for the very first time, not yet glimpsing what dark futures await.
