Yeah, that's almost two years from now. But if that's the amount of time they need to make a great film, please use it wisely.

I'm down for Keanu to make a John Wick film every year or two until he dies and then even maybe even after that.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, screenwriter Derek Kolstad, who wrote the first two films, will return to write "Chapter Three." The first "John Wick" was directed by Chad Stahelski and David Leitch, with "Chapter Two" directed by Stahelski.
Back in June, director Chad Stahelski talked to the Independent about what elements he hopes to explore in "Chapter Three":
"We are going to put in something about the High Table, how that all works. We're going to put in something about where John comes from, and where he wants to go. I don't want to say too much more, but it will be a nice completion to Mr Wick's journey."
Reeves also told Empire how he'd like "John Wick: Chapter Three" to open (SPOILER ALERT):
"I think the opening of the film should be Wick just trying to escape from New York. Literally trying to get off the island. Maybe he asks [Lawrence Fisburne's character] the Bowery King for help. Maybe John Leguizamo comes and helps me out. 'John, I can't do it, you're excommunicado!' Maybe the High Table shows up. And then the High Table starts firing guns. And then maybe this kind of thing starts to happen between the High Table and Continental? Maybe John is the activator of this confrontation, and perhaps there's a war? Wouldn't that be awesome?!"
Fans can see how the film really opens in May 2019 ... unless they decide to move the release date at some point in the next two years.
