Picking up from the cliffhanger ending of last year's John Wick: Chapter 2, next May's John Wick: Parabellum will see the titular hitman use whatever means necessary to escape from New York City in one piece.

Director Chad Stahelski has released an official photo from the upcoming sequel showing Keanu Reeves' character riding on horseback at full speed being pursued by assassins on motorcycles through the busy streets of New York City to Empire Magazine.
