‘John Wick 3’ Lands The Working Title of ‘Alpha Cop’

Jan 11, 2018


Omega Underground has been closely updating fans on the progress of Chad Stahelski’s John Wick: Chapter 3, from its production bump from the fall into 2018 to entering pre-production last month (later confirmed by trades), and seeing the return of production designer Kevin Kavanaugh (John Wick: Chapter 2, The Dark Knight Rises).

Now, we’ve confirmed that the working title on the production will be Alpha Cop suggesting that things are moving along nicely.

Previously, John Wick: Chapter 2’s working title was Spear. Which I assume was a nod to the Holy Lance used by Longinus, a Roman centurion that stabbed Jesus in the side during his crucifixion. A huge clue that the setting would take place in Rome.

Could this working title be referring to John’s past, an ultimate assassin set on killing him or possibly a nod to the police officer referred to as Jimmy that keeps checking in on Wick at his home?

We currently don’t have set production dates (expected to begin shooting spring/summer) or locations for the film, but its expected to return to New York City. Keanu Reeves has teased locales such as Tokyo and Jerusalem in the past.
