Would there be John Wick Chapter4?
Although he never left our heats Keanu Reaves made a huge return to the mainstream with the original John Wick film back in 2014.
It has since spawned one of the coolest action franchises of the decade. We’ve heard about plans for a couple of spin-offs, a video game, and even a TV series.
In this post, we would be sticking close to home and looking at everything we know so far about the John Wick Chapter 4.
John Wick Chapter4: Release Date
Thankfully, we won’t need to wait too terribly long to get back to all the sweet action as The Variety reports that the sequel is set for May 21st release in 2021.
With film’s release date things are subject to change throughout development and production. But have faith! We don’t yet have a confirmed director for the project.
Given that Chad Stahelski has been a part of the franchise as a director since day one. He recently confirmed in one of the interviews he would be involved with John Wick Chapter 4 if Parabellum was successful.
Who Will Star in John Wick Chapter 4?
It was rumoured that John Wick’s next sequel has actually been recast with Mathew McCooughney taking over the lead role. It was the Reddit gossip that has taken the fan world by storm.
With the official news scare at the moment, no one has actually been confirmed for the fourth instalment.
Similar to Stahelski, Keanu Reaves has stated that he would happily return to the franchise if it continued to have success. So you can’t have a John Wick movie without him!
Looking at how each sequel has picked up directly after the previous movie we can probably expect that huge cliff-hanger in John Wick Chapter 3 means Lawrence Fishburne, Ian McShane, Lance Reddick and the likes of all will make a return.
John Wick Chapter 4: What Will it be Rated?
John Wick Chapter 4 appears to be bigger, more badass, and crazier than hell. So, there’s only a small, very tiny chance that next ‘John Wick’ movie will not be firmly planted in r-rating.
John Wick Chapter 4: Will it be the Final Movie?
Now, that the safe speculation is over. Let’s get into some of the bigger picture ideas surrounding John Wick Chapter 4.Could this be the final movie?
One thing we know for sure that Keanu and his director Chad don’t like to get ahead of themselves when planning out each film. In one of the interview, the director Chad Stahelski said,
‘’People ask me this all the time, am I ending the movie for a cliffhanger? Keanu and I have never, from one to two, two to three, ever expected to do a sequel or a follow-up. John may survive all this thing but at the end of it, there’s no happy ending. He’s got nowhere to go.’’
So, it doesn’t sound like John Wick Chapter 4 would necessarily be set up as the end of the franchise and given that Chapter 3 grossed over 300 million dollars on just a 75 million dollar budget.
We think it’s only in everyone’s best interest, fans included, that this story keeps moving along until the well runs dry.
John Wick Chapter 4: Will it connect to the movie ‘Ballerina’?
As mentioned there’s a lot going on in John Wick’s franchise outside of the main film series. That includes the development of a spin-off film ‘Ballerina’, about a young female assassin.
Right now, a writer and director are attached. Keanu and Chad are on board as producers. But we don’t yet know when it will be released.
It’s possible that the story of John Wick Chapter 4 and Ballerina will intersect in some way but right now it’s hard to tell for sure.
In John Wick Chapter 3, we will Angelica Houston’s character training ‘Ballerina’ when John comes to her doorstep for help. So there’s probably a good setup for where Ballerina might take its story.
While we wait to see how exactly John Wick Chapter 4 exactly shakes out. Fans can rest assured that the creators are very much interested in telling more of a John Wick story. For now, head to the comment section and let us know where you want to see this franchise go
