Prolific actor Lance Reddick has a number of projects yet to be released following his death Friday at age 60.
Reddick is in “John Wick: Chapter 4,” which opens March 24. His role as Charon, the concierge at the Continental, a New York hotel that is also a hub for the underworld, is a favorite among fans of the franchise.
In a joint statement, director Chad Stahelski and franchise star Keanu Reeves said: “We are deeply saddened and heartbroken by the loss of our beloved friend and colleague Lance Reddick. He was a consummate professional and a pleasure to work with.”
Reddick will also be in the upcoming “Ballerina,” directed by Len Wiseman and starring Ana de Armas in a spin-off that is part of the “John Wick” universe. A source familiar with the production said Reddick had filmed his scenes for the movie.
Reddick has a role in the upcoming “White Men Can’t Jump,” a remake of the 1992 film. The new film is scheduled to begin streaming on Hulu on May 19.
Reddick will also be in the television series “Percy Jackson and the Olympians”, where it was reported that he would play the god Zeus. The eight-episode first season was reported to have wrapped filming earlier this year and is expected to premiere on Disney+ sometime in 2024.
“He was an actor’s actor,” said Annabelle Dunne, producer of “The Caine Mutiny Court-Martial,” directed by William Friedkin and based on the play by Herman Wouk.
Reddick finished filming his part in the movie in mid-February. Now in post-production, “The Caine Mutiny Court-Martial” is preparing a potential festival plan and will likely air on Paramount+ and Showtime later in the year.
Reddick also has a role in John Ridley’s “Shirley,” which features Regina King as Shirley Chisholm. The film is being released by Netflix, and does not have a release date.
