Halle Berry Up For “John Wick 3” Lead?

Lionsgate is reportedly seeking Halle Berry for a key role in the upcoming “John Wick: Chapter 3” which will open in May next year.

That Hashtag Show, which revealed Hiroyuki Sanada would be starring in the film earlier this year, broke the Berry news and says both the studio and director Chad Stahelski want her for the role of Sofia who is a mother and the film’s female lead.

In the film, John is on the run for two reasons… he’s being hunted for a global $14 million dollar open contract on his life, and for breaking a central rule: taking a life on Continental Hotel grounds.

“John Wick: Chapter 3” is set to open on May 17th 2019.
