Released next year, the final part of the John Wick trilogy will hit cinemas.
But while fans may have expected the hitman sequel to be called John Wick: Chapter 3, Reeves had something else to say.
Speaking with Coming Soon, the 53-year-old said: “It’s both! John Wick 3: Parabellum.
When asked the meaning of the word parabellum, Reeves quoted a famous line.
He revealed: “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.”
Parabellum is also a type of semi-automatic pistol or machine gun, which could appear in John Wick 3.
He also teased the plot and Halle Berry’s character’s involvement, adding: “Yeah, John Wick is fighting for his life and thinks that Halle Berry’s character has some information for him.
“They have a past, and they get involved with The High Table, this kind of overlording entity.”
He said: “It’s going to be a good way to wrap up what has become something of a trilogy.
“Without giving too much away, there’s a reason we named it chapters instead of part one, two and three.”
But how’s it going to start? Fans will remember at the end of John Wick Chapter 2, the hitman is in some of a pickle.
He’s killed a man on Continental hotel grounds and now Ian McShane’s Winston, has no choice but to launch an international contract to kill John – giving him just one hour to get a head start before it goes live.
Strangely he gives John a medallion, like the blood oath one from earlier in the film, telling him: “You might need this.”
We asked Chad what was going on there and what its impact will be in Chapter 3.
He revealed: “We purposely left that ambiguous. You could take it two ways.You could take it as Winston handing John back his marker, so he basically has the blank cheque.
“Or is it Winston handing join a marker saying, you can call in a favour? I’m fairly certain that’ll be answered in Chapter 3.”
John Wick Chapter 3: Parabellum will be released on May 17, 2019.
