John Wick has been known for its signature style of including dogs within its narrative. this time around, the franchise will be seeing Halle Berry's Sofia carry the narrative forward. Berry's character meets Wick (Keeanu Reeves) in the Middle East. Sofia's dogs in the first look are a couple of Belgian Malinois dogs and are sure to hold a deeper connection with Berry's character, much like Wick's in the original film.

Director Chad Stahelski informed Entertainment Weekly that while John's puppy symbolised his wife, Halle's dogs signify someone she has lost. Stahelski added that the narrative included action sequences that were specially built around the dogs in the new film — Sofia's “canine assistants…. They work very well tactically.”

Reeves added that Sofia is someone that Wick shared a past with and thus goes up to her for help in the film. The narrative involves a $14 million contract that Wick finds himself embroiled in and he is desperately trying to run away from. The third installment of the John Wick franchise picks up from where t the second film left off.

Anjelica Huston is also a new addition to John Wick: Chapter 3 and is "responsible for [Wick’s] upbringing and his protection" as put by Stahelski. The director also revealed that John Wick: Chapter 3 is an origin story of sorts.

John Wick: Chapter 3 is scheduled to hit theaters on 17 May, 2019.
