Nearly three years after he was last seen on screen, John Wick, everyone’s favorite assassin, returns in a new film in the franchise.
Plot details, in terms of the sequel, are currently unknown, though it is expected that they will continue from the events of John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum, which showed us the hero in a less than pleasant guise: dead after being shot by Winston.
In Part 3, John Wick joined The Bowery King and survived his encounter with The High Table assassins in an attempt to get revenge on the clique.
First official image from John Wick 4 released
Keanu Reeves returns to lead the cast of John Wick 4, alongside his franchise colleagues Laurence Fishburne as The Bowery King, Ian McShane as Winston and Lance Reddick as Continental Charon.
The film will also mark the debut of the following actors: Rina Sawayama, Donnie Yen, Shamier Anderson, Bill Skarsgård, Hiroyuki Sanada, Scott Adkins, and Clancy Brown.
Chad Stahelski returns “at the helm” in John Wick 4, with a script written by Shay Hatten and Michael Finch.
During San Diego Comic-Con, Lionsgate revealed the first official image from John Wick 4. The photo depicts the assassin played by Keanu Reeves in a somewhat solemn setting as he seems haunted by the “ghosts” of the past.
While the first John Wick 4 image may not offer much insight into the film’s plot, it marks the first interesting detail on Reeves’ return to the franchise after a three-year hiatus.
It should be noted that John Wick 4 comes a bit late, and the main cause was the COVID-19 pandemic. Production was delayed even further, then, as Reeves concentrated on filming The Matrix Resurrections at Warner Bros.
You’ll be able to see the film in theaters starting March 24, 2023.
