UPDATE: New ‘John Wick 3’ Working Title Suggests War Is Coming

May 4, 2018


Production on John Wick: Chapter 3 will kick off in New York but it seemingly has a fitting new working title.

It’s now gone from Alpha Cop to Parabellum. The new working title is Latin and means “prepare for war”. We’ve seen Latin phrases used before in the film including John’s back tattoo.

This title might suggest a war between the factions of assassins including the High Table as John warns the Bowery King about war coming to his doorstep. It could also be a nod to John’s past which would likely include a military background.

Collider recently reaffirmed that the film will indeed take place mostly in NYC as previous talk has compared the third installment to Escape From New York. However, there is strong suggestion from casting and location scouting that Japan and possibly the Middle-East will be involved in the film as well.

New additions to the cast reportedly include Hiroyuki Sanada and Halle Berry.
