It has been an amazing day so far for John Wick fans. We learned this morning that along with Halle Berry, Wick will be joined by the likes of Anjelica Huston, Asia Kate Dillon, John Mantzoukas and (omg) Mark Dacascos in his next outing.
That is all seriously amazing casting for a variety of reasons. Given the type of movie we’re talking about here, I’m mostly shocked by the genius of putting Dacascos in there. It shows some real genre savvy that I admire.
But he won’t be the only super badass showing up. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Yayan Ruhian and Cecep Arif Rahman from the Raid films will also be appearing along with Tiger Chen from Reeve’s directorial debut Man of Tai Chi.
That shit is NUTS. I can’t even believe how cool this is going to be. The trio will all play future dead characters who go up against Wick. I’m sure their screen time will be minimal, but unlike other Hollywood films that waste martial artists (I’m looking at you The Force Awakens), I highly doubt they’ll be wasted here.
