John Wick Cast, Crew Release Date, Trailer & More

When Keanu Reeves returned to the action genre with John Wick in 2014, no one expected it to become a series, but we did know we wanted more right away.

Seven years later, Reeves’ ultra-assassin is leading a three-film franchise that’s effectively built out a narrative around an underground league of killers with their own rules, conventions, and guidelines.

John Wick Chapter 4

Keanu Reeves’ character, John Wick, discovers a way to beat The High Table. Yet, before he can be released, Wick must fight a new foe with global ties and forces that turn familiar friends into enemies.

Just days after the third installment, John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum, was released, Lionsgate announced that a fourth film was already in the works, with Reeves reprising the title role, ace stuntman-turned-filmmaker Chad Stahelski returning to direct, and Mike Finch (Predators) taking over script duties. Although the COVID-19 epidemic delayed the release date by a year, the release of John Wick: Chapter 4 is soon approaching, and the buzz, as they say, is real. Everything you need to know about John Wick: Chapter 4 is right here, from its release date to where it’s currently filming to all of the new cast members.

The release date of John Wick: Chapter 4 was originally slated for May 21, 2021, however, due to the COVID-19 pandemic and Reeves’ scheduling conflicts with The Matrix: Resurrections, it was pushed back a year to May 27, 2022. It has since been rescheduled for March 24, 2023.

In addition to Reeves reprising his role as the titular hitman, Stahelski said Ian McShane would return for his fourth John Wick film. “I couldn’t be more thrilled to welcome Ian McShane back to John Wick: Chapter 4,” The director remarked. “Not only is he a fantastic performer, but he is also an invaluable partner who has helped shape the universe of John Wick.”

Lance Reddick and Laurence Fishburne have also been confirmed for the fourth installment. John Wick: Chapter 4 has also been quickly assembling an absolutely stacked cast of new cast members, including a trio of proven action badasses in Donnie Yen (Ip Man), Scott Adkins (Ninja: Shadow of a Tear), and Mark Zaror (Machete Kills), alongside horror’s scariest evil clown Bill Skarsgard (It), scene-stealing Japanese actor Hiroyuki Sanada (Mortal Kombat), Wynonna Earp favorite.

Skarsgrd, too, explained how he became interested in the franchise as a fan of the action genre and eventually joined the cast after meeting Stahelski:

When and Where Is John Wick: Chapter 4 Filming?

A text message sent to subscribers in June 2021 revealed that John Wick: Chapter 4 had begun filming. “It’s started. Take this as a professional courtesy. The fourth installment of John Wick is now in process “the text stated. Shamier Anderson confirmed the commencement of production later that day with a set photo.

In addition, Lionsgate’s original intention to shoot John Wick 4 and John Wick 5 back-to-back was halted owing to the pandemic, and only John Wick 4 will be completed by the end of the summer. Shooting wrapped in November 2021.

Who Are the Confirmed Characters in John Wick: Chapter 4?

Keanu Reeves will portray the main character, John Wick, an assassin who dresses the hell out of a suit and knows roughly 10,000 methods to kill you. McShane plays Winston, the owner of the New York Continental Hotel, who was last seen betraying John Wick with a bullet to the chest. Stahelski stated that Winston’s intentions are still open to interpretation. “He intended to shoot him,” the director explained to THR. “Did he intend to murder him? That’s open to interpretation; you can take it one of two ways, and that’s where John Wick 4 picks up on some of the unsolved questions.”

Watch the John Wick: Chapter 4 Trailer

Lionsgate published the official trailer for John Wick: Chapter 4 in November 2022. The two-minute, 29-second film begins with a dialogue between John Wick and an old buddy named Caine.

“You’re going to die,” Caine tells her. Wick responds, “Maybe not.”
The trailer then introduces a new antagonist, the Marquis de Garmont, who announces his intention to fundamentally restructure the High Table’s pecking order. “A new day is breaking. Innovative concepts. New guidelines. New leadership, “he claims.

Winston, the manager of the New York Continental, informs Wick that he must challenge the Marquis to single combat.
“I don’t sit at The Table,” Wick declares, to which Winston responds, “but your family does.” Viewers are then introduced to Katia, a woman described by filmmaker Chad Stahleski as Wick’s “previous family,” akin to a stepsister. The trailer ends with the Marquis making a significant commitment to Wick. “If you win, The Table will keep its promise. You shall be liberated “he claims. Before releasing the official trailer, Lionsgate teased fans about John Wick: Chapter 4 with a short teaser, which was initially seen at the San Diego Comic-Con in July 2022.

How Long Will John Wick: Chapter 4 Be?

Back in November, Chad Stahelski stated that the fourth part in the series would be the longest, spanning at least 2.5 hours:

Deadline exclusively disclosed on February 13 that the film will be 2 hours and 49 minutes long with credits, making it the longest film in the franchise. The first film lasted 1 hour and 41 minutes, the second 2 hours and 2 minutes, and the third 2 hours and 10 minutes. This puts the action blockbuster on par with recent flicks like Elvis and Black Panther: Wakanda Forever regarding runtime.

When will John Wick: Chapter 4 Premiere?

The film will be released in theatres on March 24, 2023.
Stahelski and Reeves addressed why they decided to give John Wick: Chapter 4 a theatrical release with WIRED.
“Maybe it’s our generation, but I prefer seeing a movie in a theatre, even if it’s intended for streaming later. It’s such a unique experience “According to the franchise’s director.
Reeves went on to say: “I believe that the force of cinema is due in part to its novelty, but also to its scale. You witness a close-up of a fantastic performance, complete with emotions and stories that move you. Whether it’s horror, action, or comedy, you’re looking at a 20-foot-tall face. Yeah. You’re almost there. That level of intimacy.”

Will there be a John Wick: Chapter 5?

Lionsgate CEO John Feltheimer confirmed in August 2020 that the studio intends to develop a fifth John Wick film. The initial plan was to shoot the fourth and fifth films simultaneously. Nevertheless, the COVID-19 epidemic thwarted those objectives. Reeves recently told Total Film that a fifth installment is not guaranteed. “You’ll have to wait and watch how the crowd reacts to what we did,” he remarked. “The only reason we’ve been able to make these films is that people have loved what we’ve done. So I believe we will have to wait and see how the audience reacts to it. Hopefully, they’ll enjoy it.”
