Halle Berry’s Sofia Al-Azwar was an important player to help John Wick get to the Elder of the High Table when he was declared Excommunicado.
Sofia bid John farewell in the desert, but it seemed promising that the Casablanca’s Continental manager would return with her badass Belgian Malinois.
However, in a new interview with IGN, Berry has revealed that she won’t be back for John Wick: Chapter 4, but there’s a possibility she might get her own spinoff.
Sofia’s not in the next John Wick movie. There could possibly be a Sofia…her own movie. So, she might not be in John Wick, but she might be doing her own thingy-thingy.
(Guess Sofia really meant it when she told John that they were “less than even.”)
Berry said the hopes of a new potential spinoff are like “putting some ointment on a little sore,” referring to the canceled James Bond spinoff project featuring her character Jinx.
Berry previously told Variety that the cancellation resulted from the studio not being confident about the value of a “Black female action star” flick.
John Wick has had plenty of spinoff speculations with two confirmed projects. The first is The Continental, a series focusing on Winston Scott in 1970s New York, and the second being a film titled Ballerina, currently in development.
As for John Wick: Chapter 4, Lionsgate Movies dropped an announcement video in December, pushing the film’s release date to March 24, 2023.
Initially set to debut in May this year, the film was delayed, presumably, due to the pandemic.
Filming took place on locations in Berlin, Paris, Japan, and New York City, wrapping up principal photography in October 2021.
Plot details are still scarce, but Chapter 3 – Parabellum saw Winston shooting Wick, leaving him for dead before he is saved by The Tick Tock Man and taken to Bowery King. As a very pissed-off John Wick prepares to take down the High Table, it’d be interesting to know whether Winston shot to kill him or to save him.
John Wick: Chapter 4 is said to dive deeper and be a massive event featuring stellar new cast members alongside (or more like, against) Keanu Reeves’ Wick.
