Asked what the title means, Reeves, who portrays the eponymous character, said, "Prepare for war. It's part of that famous sentence, 'Si vis pacem, para bellum', which translates as, 'If you want peace, prepare for war'."
The threequel, which will be once again directed by Chad Stahelski, will also feature actor Halle Berry in a pivotal role.
"John Wick is fighting for his life and thinks that Halle Berry's character has some information for him. They have a past, and they get involved with The High Table, this kind of overlording entity," he said.
The two actors will be joined by newcomers Angelica Huston, Asia Kate Dillon, Mark Dacascos, Jason Mantzoukas, Yayan Ruhian, Cecep Arif Rahman, and Tiger Hu Chen.
The franchise has proved to be a major commercial as well as critical success for Lionsgate and raked in a combined USD 260 million in worldwide gross.
