John Wick director Chad Stahelski says that work has commenced on the script for the planned sequel John Wick 3.

Making his proper directorial debut with this year’s sequel John Wick: Chapter 2, Stahelski also worked on the original movie but served as a co-director alongside David Leitch. Prior to this, he worked as a stuntman, most notably doubling for Brandon Lee in The Crow after the actor died just days before shooting on the production ended. Most recently, he has been tapped to helm Triple Threat.

No release date has been offered for the proposed follow-up., the source of this story, quotes Stahelski as saying the following about the upcoming sequel:

“We’re currently in the middle of writing it right now,” he tells the outlet. “…It’s more of a how fast can we get our sh** together. But I would assume that if not by the end of this year, the beginning of next year.”

Stahelski’s involvement with the project is unclear, however, with him explaining that he is not quite acting as director at the moment but definitely interested in doing so:

“Currently I’m acting as prep director,” he explained. “Hopefully everything will work out time wise. Of course — I would love to… If you really watch the first and second one, there’s only one place it can go — so I’ll let you sort that out.”

About the author

Reggie Peralta

An aspiring writer, longtime film junkie, and former disc jockey (where I graduated with a BA in Political Science), I've made the jump from penning book reviews and current events editorials for to writing movie and TV news and reviews.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
