‘John Wick 3’ could be more awesome than ever.

That is, if Samuel L. Jackson gets his way.

During an episode of Meet the Movie Press, film journalist Simon Thompson revealed that he’s recently spoken to Samuel L. Jackson about a Nick Fury solo movie… but he’s far more interested in the ‘John Wick’ franchise.

“He actually was less interested in that than he was in an idea he floated with me, and he’s floated it with me twice now,” he explained. “He wants to do, over a Nick Fury movie, John Wick 3 with Laurence Fishburne and Keanu Reeves.”

“He absolutely loves the John Wick movies,” he added. “He wants in. He doesn’t want in, he wants in with a capital IN. Seriously, I think he will do whatever he needs to do to get in on John Wick 3.”

So, what do we have to do to make it happen?

We’ve already seen big names like Ian McShane, Laurence Fishburne, John Leguizamo, and Willem Dafoe sign up for the ‘John Wick’ movies… and Samuel L. Jackson just feels like a perfect fit.

He’s certainly no stranger to action films, and Jackson could easily fit in alongside Keanue Reeves and Laurence Fishburne as a villain, or an ally. Honestly, the possibilities are nearly endless.

Will it happen?

For now, we have to wait and see.

After all, Keanu Reeves may be very interested in continuing the story of John Wick, but currently no sequel has been green lit. At least, not that we know of. Still, it’s got to happen, right?

And if anyone can land a role in the movie, surely it’s got to be Samuel L. Jackson.
