Another first-look John Wick 3: Parabellum image has arrived. This time around, we are introduced to Anjelica Huston's as the Director. Fans of the franchise have been wondering who the actress is playing in the third installment of the popular John Wick series, and it has been revealed that she is a member of the High Table. In addition to Huston, the sequel is also introducing Asia Kate Dillon as the Adjudicator and Jason Matzoukas as a character called the Tick Tock Man.
There isn't a whole lot of information about the Director character played by Anjelica Huston available at the moment. When discussing John Wick 3, director Chad Stahelski previously noted that Huston's character is "someone who was responsible for (Wick's) upbringing and his protection," which sounds pretty interesting. That bit of information leads us to believe that we will be getting more of Wick's backstory when the movie hits theaters. Keanu Reeves had this to say about Huston's the Director.
"We're trying to make it that there are different tribes, less nondescript assassins. Anjelica Huston is playing this Roma Ruska character."
Last week, two John Wick 3 first-look images were revealed. One of which showed the titular assassin in the rain and another one that featured Halle Berry's mysterious Sophia character and her two Belgian Malinois dogs. The two canine companions represent someone who Sophia has lost, according to Chad Stahelski, who also teased that there is a pretty crazy action scene involving the dogs. The director went on to say that Sophia's dogs work very well together and Keanu Reeves says that Wick goes out to Sophia for help.
John Wick is going to need all of the help that he can get since there's currently a $14 million bounty on his head. The first portion of John Wick 3 will see the assassin fight his way out of New York City after being given a one hour grace period to split after breaking from the High Table. It will be interesting to see how Anjelica Huston's the Director ties into things after Wick is on the run. If she was responsible for his wellbeing, she might not be anymore and the image of the two looks like there could be some harsh words traded.
John Wick 3 hits theaters next year and director Chad Stahelski has teased that he and Keanu Reeves have a ton of ideas to keep the franchise moving after the third installment wraps up. The first movie came out in 2014 and it was an unexpected hit, so the sequel was met with open arms and was even more of a success. If the trend follows, there's a good chance that Stahelski and Reeves will revisit the character for a possible fourth movie. If fans want more Wick, they have to go support the franchise in theaters. You can check out the first-look image of Anjelica Huston's the Director below, thanks to Empire.
