TAKE ALL MY MONEY NOW! My prayers have been answered! Deadline has officially brought word that action star Scott Adkins is officially in talks to join the cast of John Wick 4 which just recently went into production this week. I have been championing for Scott to be a part of it and even talked to him about it during one of our interviews and now it looks like it’s becoming a reality. John Wick is one of the biggest franchises and Adkins is one of the best action stars out there so this is a match made in bullet riddled heaven.

Per Deadline: Scott Adkins is in negotiations to join cast of Lionsgate’s John Wick 4, with Keanu Reeves returning to reprise the role of Wick. Donnie Yen, Rina Sawayama and Shamier Anderson are also on board. Chad Stahelski returns as director.

The film is set for theatrical release on May 27, 2022. Shay Hatten and Michael Finch wrote the screenplay. Pic is produced by Basil Iwanyk, Erica Lee and Stahelski and executive produced by Reeves and Louise Rosner.

It’s important to note that he’s in active negotiations but it looks like he’s joining one of the best action franchises in history. With Chad Stahelski helming, I’m sure Adkins will be utilized fully. His role and the plot are unknown at this time.

When I questioned Adkins about it during our interview for Ip Man 4, Adkins answered:

Yeah, you’d have to ask Chad (laughs). Listen, I’m sure that if the right character came up, I’m sure he would love to have me on board but he has a vision and he’s going to use the right actor but you’d be hard pressed to find a better martial arts actor that can act better then me (laughs). But the bottom line is I’d love to do one and work with Chad and Keanu and he knows where I am if he wants me.

Well it looks like Stahelski knows where he is and has found the right character for him and the time has come! With Donnie Yen involved and now Adkins, this is definitely the can’t miss action event of next year. Adkins deserves to be a mainstream action star and hopefully this is a sign of things to come. Bring it!!!!!!
