Before his death, Lance Reddick completed ‘Percy Jackson’ and more projects

Prolific actor Lance Reddick still has several projects to release following his death on Friday at the age of 60.

Reddick is in “John Wick: Chapter 4,” which premieres March 24. His role as Charon, the concierge at the Continental, a New York hotel that is also an underworld hub, 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 at the loss of our dear friend and colleague, Lance Reddick. He was the quintessential professional and a pleasure working with him.”

Reddick is also set to appear in the upcoming “Ballerina,” directed by Len Wiseman and starring Ana de Armas, a spinoff that is part of the “John Wick” universe. A source familiar with the production said that Reddick had filmed his own scenes for the film.

Reddick has a role in “White Men Can’t Jump”, a remake of the 1992 film. The new film is set to begin streaming on Hulu on May 19.

Reddick will also be in the television series “Percy Jackson and the Olympians”, where he was reported to play the god Zeus. The eight-episode first season was reported to have wrapped shooting 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 Caen Mutiny Court-Martial,” directed by William Friedkin and based on the play by Herman Wouk.

Reddick completed shooting his part in the film in mid-February. Now in postproduction, “The Caine Mutiny Court-Martial” is getting a possible festival plan and will likely be streaming on Paramount+ and Showtime later in the year.

Reddick also has a role in John Ridley’s “Shirley”, which stars Regina King as Shirley Chisholm. The film is being released by Netflix, and has no release date yet.
