Filming of “John Wick: Chapter 3” continues and there is a new cast member in the film. There hasn’t been any official announcement yet but Saïd Taghmaoui teased pictures from the production set and confirmed his casting in the film. Details about the new character are currently being kept under wraps.

Taghmaouti shared two pictures online [see below]. The first picture shows the filming location of the film, which is somewhere in a desert location. This picture also confirms the official logo of the film, which can be seen on the chair.

The second picture shows Taghmaouti enjoying a break between takes during a night shoot with Keanu Reeves (John Wick). Reeves can be seen in full costume and makeup, with a few cuts and bruises on his face.

The third installment of the popular action franchise will look at how the criminal underworld in New York City functions. The pictures that Taghmaouti shared online suggest that the protagonist will be travelling outside the country too. It remains to be seen what exotic new locations the mercenary will travel to, and for what purpose.

The main plot of the film will revolve around John Wick being on the run, with a large bounty on his head. Assassins will be out to get the protagonist and he will once again have to kill his way out of trouble.  

The upcoming film will introduce a new set of characters; most prominent among them are Sofia (Halley Berry) and The Director (Anjelica Huston). It remains to be seen what character Taghmaoui will play in the film.

Taghmaoui is best known for his role as Sameer in “Wonder Woman.” Some of his other big projects include “G. I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra” and the TV series “Ballers.”

“John Wick: Chapter 3” is being directed by Chad Stahelski.
