John Wick 4 Update: Practically chaining one shoot with another. Keanu Reeves has once again been seen on German stages ready to go before the cameras for the fourth installment of another of his most popular sagas, that of John Wick. But if in the images that came to us from Matrix 4 the actor wore his head shaved, this time he can be seen with the characteristic beard of his infallible hitman character.
In fact, the intention is that John Wick 4 and 5 will be shot simultaneously and that they will be directed again by the one who was also an action specialist Chad Stahelski. Although we will miss the original screenwriter, Derek Kolstad who already announced that it had been decided to do without him for the two new sequels that are being prepared.
John Wick 4 Update:
“No, it was not my decision. When you think about contractual matters, in the third I shared the credit with several people, and since they no longer need me to be there, they will not count on me again,” Kolstad explained to Collider. And, without any rancor, he wishes the saga the best.
“I think everything is to be appreciated, also for those involved in the work. I will never speak ill of John Wick. I want him to survive and prosper. ” Despite this, he is already working on a possible series about The Continental, the hotel that serves as a neutral refuge for hitmen in this particular universe of the franchise.
On the other hand, Keanu Reeves is absolutely essential, willing to continue with the character ” As far as my legs take me. As far as the audience wants me to go”, in his own words. The filming of John Wick 4 has begun in the Berlin studios of Potsdam Babelsberg, and its premiere is scheduled for May 22, 2022, in the United States (three years after John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum ).
