JOHN WICK: CHAPTER 4 SYNOPSIS

John Wick: Chapter 4 is a forthcoming American-made neo-noir action thriller film that will be the direct sequel to John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum and the fourth episode in the John Wick film series.

It is directed by Chad Stahelski and produced by Stahelski, Basil Iwanyk, and Erica Lee, with a story co-written by Shay Hatten and Michael Finch and based on characters developed by Derek Kolstad. Thunder Road Pictures and 87North Productions are producing the film, which stars Keanu Reeves as the main character.

The film will be released on May 27, 2022, and will be distributed by Lionsgate. The release date was originally scheduled for May 21, 2021, however, it was postponed owing to the COVID-19 epidemic and Reeves’ obligations to the fourth Matrix film.

REVIEW

Following the release of Parabellum on May 20, 2019, Lionsgate revealed that a fourth film is already in the works. Fans who had previously gotten “Lionsgate’s “John Wick” SMS updates delivered the sequel news in assassin-speak on Monday: “You have served. You’ll be of assistance. John Wick: Chapter 4 will be released on May 21, 2021 “, not only announcing the film but also its release date.

Before the release of the third film, director Chad Stahelski revealed on a Reddit “AMA” thread that another film was in the works and that he would be involved if the threequel was a success. Despite this, it was not clear if actor Keanu Reeves will return for a new chapter at the time.

In an interview with IndieWire, Stahelski teased the fourth film by stating Wick would not conclude it with a “happy ending,” adding, “John may escape all this nonsense, but there’s no happy ending at the end of it.” He doesn’t have anywhere to go. To be honest, I challenge you right now, and I’ll ask you a question: How do you want me to finish it? Do you suppose he’ll ride out into the sunset like that? Is it okay that he’s just going to [go away] after killing 300 fucking people? Is he merely going to fall in love with someone? How would this man’s day finish if you’re this fucking guy if this guy truly existed? For the rest of his life, he’ll be screwed. It’s only a question of time.” Stahelski also hinted at Winston’s death in the fourth film, saying, “He had intended to shoot him. Was he trying to murder him? That’s up to interpretation; you may take it one of two ways, and that’s where we pick up on some of John Wick 4’s unresolved questions.” In May 2020, the company decided to fire series creator Derek Kolstad and instead employ Shay Hatten to write the screenplay. Michael Finch, the screenwriter for the Predators, took up screenwriting responsibilities in March 2021.

Following the COVID-19 pandemic and Reeves’ obligations to The Matrix 4, which was supposed to be released in the same initial date frame as Wick 4, IndieWire announced on May 1, 2020, that the fourth film has been postponed to a May 2022 release date. “The Matrix 4 was just four weeks in when this all happened [production on The Matrix 4 was suspended],” Stahelski explained. “So, Keanu’s gotta finish off his obligation on The Matrix, which is a major deal and will probably take him till the end of the year.” Then we’ll move into preparation mode, and then we’ll get started. So, when it comes to release dates, nobody knows right now.”

Reeves was said to have started his training for John Wick 4 and The Matrix 4 while the fourth picture was already announced.
