OutdoorHub Reporters 05.15.19
As if the new John Wick film couldn’t look any better, a video surfaced recently showing Taran Butler training Halle Berry to look the part of a professional assassin in John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum.
In a video posted by the official “John Wick” Facebook page, Berry can be seen running an array of drills and dialing in her technique with both handguns and a rifle. At one point in the video, Berry is even complimented by her trainers for her “double taps.”
Reeves went through an intense series of weapons training himself to prepare for all three movies, and yet, he couldn’t help but marvel at Berry’s expertise.
And can you blame him?:
In another short clip about the intense training they each went through for the high octane action featured in the movie, Reeves praised Berry for her work ethic.
“Some people say they want to do John Wick training, and then it starts and they’re like, ‘Oh, this is John Wick training?'” Reeves jokes in the video. “And when Halle said she wanted to do that, director Chad Stahelski said, ‘Here you go.’ And Halle said, ‘Thank you, sir, can I please have some more?'”

This will be the first time both actors will appear on the big screen together, however, according to Fox News, Berry revealed they actually had an opportunity to work together back in 1994 when Reeves played a Los Angeles police officer in “Speed.”
“I don’t know if you know this, but I was offered ‘Speed’ before Sandra Bullock,” Berry confessed in an interview with ET Online. “I stupidly said no. But in my defense, when I read the script the bus didn’t leave the parking lot.”
