Keanu Reeves and Halle Berry have been going through grueling training regimes to prepare for their roles in John Wick: Chapter 3- Parabellum to make hit-man portrayal completely believable.
Keanu Reeves trained with the Navy Seals to perfect his shooting abilities and combat skills, going to unbelievable lengths. Halle Berry, who also plays an assassin by the name of Sofia was right beside him training to become a killing machine as well.
The 53-year-old Halle Berry has trained so hard that she now has three broken ribs to show. This doesn't phase her as she regards the injury as a 'badge of honor'. This shows her commitment to the role and her craft and well that she's generally a badass.
Halle Berry stated this:
So I broke three ribs in rehearsal. But all the stunt guys said they’ve all done it.
That’s part of doing your own stunts and being a stunt woman. Like, I don’t train as an actor. I trained as a stunt woman to be able to do my own fights.
And they were all like, ‘good, now it’s a badge of honour, you’ve done what we’ve all done, good for you, now get back to work!’.

Halle Berry also revealed that you have to be able to do your own stunts in order to act in John Wick movies, hinting that it was a requirement of director Chad Stahelski. Halle had to get into killer shape, no pun intended, for this role and did aikido, jiujitsu and judo as part of her training regime.
Halle also trained with Belgian Malinois dogs who she had seemingly mixed feelings about stating that they are "the smartest, most ferocious, but they're also cuddly and they're also very loyal".
