We’ve known about the fourth instalment since John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum debuted, but we now have a lot more information to share with you. While we know John Wick will return with more bloodshed, showdowns, smouldering looks into the camera, and weapons, firearms, guns, there’s still a lot of mystery about what we may expect.
So far, we’ve compiled all we know about John Wick 4’s release date, narrative, and cast. Since the release of John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum in 2019, fans have been waiting for John’s comeback in the highly anticipated franchise, and we’ve finally heard the word.
When will the fourth instalment of John Wick be released?
On March 24, 2023, John Wick: Chapter 4 is set to hit theatres. In December 2021, this was disclosed in a video. Originally scheduled for release in 2021, and rumoured to be on the same day as The Matrix 4, John Wick: Chapter 4 has been delayed due to a slew of Covid-related issues.
Lionsgate, in classic John Wick form, notified fans who had signed up for an exclusive text service that the film was back in production. “Take this as a professional courtesy,” it stated. Chapter 4 of John Wick is currently in the works.”
It was also shared with a photo of an empty director’s chair with the message “Anybody got a pencil sharpener?” on social media. Chapter 4 of John Wick is currently in the works.”
In an earnings call in 2020, Lionsgate CEO John Feltheimer disclosed, “We’re also busy preparing screenplays for the next two instalments of our John Wick action franchise.” So there’ll be two John Wicks this time. What could we possibly want? I suppose triple.
Now it appears that the production has had more time to reshoot due to the delay. Although the majority of the main filming took place in 2021, new set photographs of Reeves and his co-star Ian McShane in New York have surfaced. However, it remains to be seen how these last reshoots will affect the plot.
What happens in Chapter 4 of John Wick?
The assassin John Wick was dragged out of retirement to avenge his sad deceased pet when the film first came released in 2014. He had to keep an old blood oath in John Wick: Chapter 2. Then he battled the High Table in John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum, so what’s next for the assassin?
The Tick-Tock Man (Jason Mantzoukas) and Bowery King (Laurence Fishburne) took a gravely wounded John Wick to an underground bunker where they discussed their common rage at the High Table in Chapter 3.
Winston (Ian McShane) wanted to keep his job as manager of The Continental and maintain his standing with the High Table, so he left John for dead. As a result, we anticipate Bowery King and John Wick joining forces in Chapter 4.
We also know that the crew has been filming in France, Germany, New York, and Japan, so expect plenty of global brawling.
According to Chad Stahleski, the film will act as a sort of series finale.
“I think Chapter 4 is a good continuation of all three prior films, and it also has a bit of a finale to it,” Stahleski said. “We introduce a slew of new characters, both past and present, who have a lot to say about John Wick.” It’s hope, I believe, and brotherhood. It’s what life would be like if John were to have an existential crisis, and I believe that’s the most enjoyable aspect of the film.”
Who is cast in the fourth instalment of john wick?
The cast of John Wick: Chapter 4 has been in full casting mode, with a slew of new and returning faces being added to the film’s IMDB page.
As John Wick, Keanu Reeves
The Bowery King is Laurence Fishburne.
Winston is played by Ian McShane, while Charon is played by Lance Reddick.
“I went through the script and read it. It’s outstanding. In an interview with Collider, Laurence Fishburne remarked of the script, “As much as it’s the same world as the other three films, it’s simply deeper.” “It’s more deeper in terms of the assassin’s code, and the relationship that he has with one specific character, who I believe Mr. Watanabe is portraying, is really the heart and soul of it.”
Collider has confirmed that Watanabe is the name of a character in the forthcoming film, not a new cast member, such as Ken Watanabe from The Last Samurai.
Here are a few of the newcomers so far:
Bill Skarsgrd is a Swedish actor who is most known for his role in the movie (IT)
Brown Clancy (The Shawshank Redemption)
Anderson Shamier (Stowaway)
Donnie Yen is an actor who is known for his role in the film Do (Ip Man)
Sanada Hiroyuki (47 Ronin)
Adkins Scott (Boyka: Undisputed)
Marko Zaror is a writer who lives in the Czech Republic (Redeemer)
Bill Skarsgrd discussed how he was cast in his part in an interview with Collider. ” Chad [Stahelski] contacted me, and I met him a couple of times and liked him. It was a lot of fun playing this part. I’m not going to say too much about it, but it was a great job and a fast-paced environment.”
