'John Wick 3': Halle Berry Walks The Desert With Keanu Reeves In New First-Look Image

Last month, Lionsgate released a new image of Halle Berry as Sofia, a new character Wick meets in the Middle East, in 'John Wick: Chapter 3', the third installment of the action franchise, which is set to be released on May 17th. Read more details beneath:

Entertainment Weekly: “She has a past with John,” says Reeves. “I end up going to find her to see if she can help me.”

Sofia has two Belgian Malinois dogs, continuing the tradition of canine-centric plotlines in a film series whose first entry, 2014’s John Wick, featured Reeves’ character going on a killing spree after the murder of his four-legged friend. “Whereas John’s puppy was symbolic of his wife, Halle’s two dogs are symbolic of someone she’s lost,” says director Chad Stahelski, adding that they developed an action sequence around her “canine assistants…. They work very well tactically.”

Halle Berry Teams With Lena Waithe To EP 'Boomerang' Series

DEADLINE: Over 26 years after she had her breakthrough big screen appearance in Boomerang, Halle Berry is now going to put some serious spin on BET’s small screen sequel of sorts, and Lena Waithe is joining her.

The Oscar winner and the Emmy winner will be executive producers on the 10-episode half-hour BET Networks and Paramount Television produced series, which is set to drop next year.

“I’m thrilled to team up with Lena on this project as she is without a doubt a leading voice of her generation and a trail blazer in her own right,” soon-to-be Bruised director Berry said in a statement Monday. “I’m truly excited to be a part of bringing this iconic and beloved film to the small screen.”

“This is less of a reboot and more of a continuation of the original story,” added Waithe. “There’s no point in trying to remake a classic,” she noted of the Reginald Hudlin directed film based on a story of commitment phobia by star Eddie Murphy. “It can’t be done. So we want to create something fresh that speaks to a new generation. We hope people will come to the show with an open mind and ready to embrace the new world we’ve created!”

Focusing on the modern-day offspring of Berry and Murphy’s characters and that of the role now Riverdale recurrer Robin Givens played in the 1992 flick, the opener for Boomerang 2.0 will be co-written by The Chi creator Waithe and Ben Cory Jones. Having produced the Netflix pic Step Sisters with Waithe, Underground and Insecure scribe Jones will be the showrunner and an EP on the new Boomerang, which was first announced earlier this year.

Chi vet Dime Davis is set to direct the pilot for BET’s Boomerang, with Rishi Rajani of Waithe’s Hillman Grad Productions also on board as an EP.

“Partnering an icon such as Halle with a disruptor like Lena is a perfect blend for the creation of a project that tells a classic tale in a relevant voice,” BET Networks president Scott Mills declared on this latest scripted endeavor by the Viacom owned outlet. “This partnership demonstrates BET’s commitment to the continued elevation of the brand, collective creativity and authentic storytelling.”

Berry is repped by WME and Management 360, Waithe, who inked a first look deal with Showtime in July, is represented by the uberagency too as well as The Mission Entertainment.
