Many are still reeling from the news on Friday about the sudden passing of celebrated “The Wire,” “Bosch,” “Fringe” and “John Wick” actor Lance Reddick at the age of 60.
Out promoting the fourth “John Wick” film in the weeks before his death and seemingly in good health and spirits, his sudden death due to natural causes has left many understandably shocked.
It has been confirmed “John Wick: Chapter 4” is now being dedicated to the late actor who reprises his role of Charon, the concierge of New York’s Continental Hotel, in the project.
However, Reddick had already completed work on numerous other projects before his passing – allowing us the gift of a few more times to enjoy his great onscreen presence and performances.
First up, Reddick reprises his Charon role for the upcoming ‘Wick’ spinoff film “Ballerina” headlined by Ana de Armas. Reeves also co-stars in that film and Reddick reportedly finished all of his scenes in that movie according to Deadline.
The trade also indicates Reddick had finished all his work on William Friedkin’s upcoming movie “The Caine Mutiny Court-Martial” for Showtime. Reddick plays Captain Blakely, chief judge of the court-martial in the projection based on a 1951 script by Herman Wouk adapting his own Pulitzer Prize-winning novel.
Reddick will also be seen starring as Zeus in the high-profile new Disney+ series “Percy Jackson and the Olympians” based on the celebrated Rick Riordan novels. Production on that show’s first season has already been completed.
More immediately he’ll be seen in the “White Men Can’t Jump” reboot in which he plays the father and coach of Sinqua Walls’ character (Walls is taking on the Wesley Snipes role from the original). That film hits Hulu on May 19th.
Reddick also stars alongside Regina King in John Ridley’s Shirley Chisholm biopic “Shirley” which follows America’s first Black congresswoman. Reddick played her campaign manager in the film which aims to release towards year’s end.
Finally, Reddick lent his voice to the role of Hellboy for the upcoming roguelike video game “Hellboy: Web of Wyrd” currently in the works at Upstream Arcade.
Reddick’s wife Stephanie has posted on Instagram expressing gratitude to his fans for their overwhelming support in the wake of his passing, saying: “Lance was taken from us far too soon. Thank you for all your overwhelming love, support and beautiful stories shared on these platforms over the last day”.
She also expressed gratitude to the “thousands of Destiny players who played in special tribute to Lance. Thank you. Lance loved you as much as he loved the game.” Reddick was a staple in gaming with major roles in both the “Destiny” and “Horizon: Zero Dawn” franchises.
