The first John Wick was called ‘John Wick’. The sequel was titled “John Wick: Chapter 2”. Care to guess the title of the third film in the saga? In a new interview with Comingsoon, Keanu Reeves has now revealed the name of the new film and if your guess was John Wick: Chapter 3, you’d be wrong. The film will actually be called John Wick: Parabellum. He went on to explain the title by saying it means “Prepare for war. It’s part of that famous sentence, ‘Si vis pacem, para bellum,’ which translates as, ‘If you want peace, prepare for war.’”
That sounds about right, given what we know from the new film’s synopsis:
John should have already been executed, except the Continental’s manager, Winston, has given him a one-hour grace period before he’s “Excommunicado” – membership revoked, banned from all services and cut off from other members. John uses the service industry to stay alive as he fights and kills his way out of New York City.
When John Wick returns to the screen, he’ll be joined by Halle Berry, Angelica Huston, Jason Mantzoukas, Asia Kate Dillon, Hiroyuki Sanada, Mark Dacascos, Tiger Hu Chen, Yayan Ruhian, Cecep Arif Rahman, Ian McShane, Laurence Fishburne, Lance Reddick, Common and Ruby Rose.
