It’s hard to imagine but if there was never a pandemic, we would have already seen the fourth installment of the John Wick franchise but alas that was not the case. Instead, filming has just begun on the anticipated 4th entry and the filmmakers teased fans with an image and a popular quote from the set. Check it out below!
The famous line said by both Keanu Reeves and Common was included in the above image of a chair on set with the film’s title on back.
Reeves returns along with franchise mainstays Ian McShane as Winston and Laurence Fishburne as The Bowery King. New additions for this one include Rina Sawayama, Shamier Anderson (Awake), Bill Skarsgard (IT), and the one and only Donnie Yen (IP Man) who will reportedly be playing an old ally of Mr. Wick. Mortal Kombat’s Hiroyuki Sanada has also joined the production as well.
Veteran action maestro Chad Stahelski, who helmed all three previous films, returns to direct from a script co-written by Shay Hatten and Michael Finch who take over for franchise creator Derek Kolstad.
When last we saw Wick, he had just been shot off the roof of the New York Continental by Winston in what appears to be an act of betrayal but my money says no way.
John Wick 4 is now in production and has a street date of May 27th, 2022.
