Somehow, the John Wick franchise just got more badass.

Halle Berry is set to join Keanu Reeves in John Wick: Chapter 3, Lionsgate announced Monday. The Oscar-winning actress, who will star in the action franchise as Sofia, reacted to her new role on Instagram, writing, “It’s a date” alongside a message for Wick.

In addition to Berry, Lionsgate revealed that Anjelica Houston (The Royal Tenenbaums), Asia Kate Dillon (Billions), Mark Dacascos (Hawaii Five-0), and Jason Mantzoukas (The League) have also come onboard director Chad Stahelski’s film, joining Reeves, Ian McShane, Lance Reddick, and Laurence Fishbourne.

Picking up where the 2017 sequel concluded, the third film will find the titular super-assassin (Reeves) with a $14 million price tag on his head and an army of bounty-hunting killers on his trail after he killed a member of the High Table.

John Wick: Chapter 3 opens in theaters on May 17, 2019.
