John Wick 4 Release Date: When John Wick brought Keanu Reeves back to the action genre in 2014, no one knew it would be the start of a series, but we all wanted more right away. Seven years later, Reeves' ultra-assassin is at the head of a full-fledged franchise with three movies.
This franchise has built a mythology around an underground league of killers who have their own rules, customs, and guidelines. Just a few days after the third movie, John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum, came out in theatres, Lionsgate announced that a fourth movie was already in the works.
Keanu Reeves would be back in the lead role, ace stuntman-turned-filmmaker Chad Stahelski would direct again, and Predators writer Mike Finch would write the script.
Even though the COVID-19 pandemic pushed the release date back a year, John Wick: Chapter 4 is almost here, and as they say, the hype is real.
Below, you'll find all the information you need about John Wick: Chapter 4, such as when it will come out, where it's being filmed now, who the new cast members are, and more.
