At 12:53 p.m. on 7/23/22, I made a correction. This weekend’s presence by John Wick: Chapter 4 at Comic-Con offered some insight to a recent tweet from the social media account of the franchise. As of this writing, it seems evident that the fourth Wick picture was not only completed but has started filming, with the release of a slick new teaser in which someone (inaccurately) tells John Wick he can’t “kill everyone.” The release date for John Wick: Chapter 4 has been set for March 24, 2023.
Original story: John Wick is back in theaters, so put your pencils away and your dogs in a cage.
Wick 4 filming has begun according to a post from the official John Wick Twitter account, which is the only Twitter account that can hold its own against a room full of martial artists with endless knives.
Three long years have passed since the publication of John Wick: Chapter 3—Parabellum; Some Dogs Really Fuck A Dude Up. This time period has yielded numerous concepts for more Wick projects, including the Len Wiseman-directed spinoff Ballerina and the Starz series The Continental, but it has been devoid of Keanu Reeves tearing down tiny armies of trained professionals while donning a swanky suite of clothes.
Reeves and filmmaker Chad Stahleski will return this week to put Baba Yaga through her paces one more, according to reports. We know that Ian McShane, Laurence Fishburne, Lance Reddick, and Rina Sawayama will all reprise their roles in JW4, along with newcomers Rina Sawayama, Donnie Yen, Shamier Anderson, Bill Skarsgard, Hiroyuki Sanada, Scott Adkins, and Clancy Brown. What a name! How great would it be to hear Clancy Brown scream something deep-voiced and threatening at John Wick? We can’t wait to see what’s in store.
Because John Wick 4 has just begun filming and won’t be in theaters until March 2023, we’ll have to wait. However, the COVID-19 epidemic and The Matrix: Resurrections delayed its arrival by quite a bit. To avoid bringing back Wick creator Derek Kolstad, Lionsgate tapped Shay Hatten and Michael Finch to write the film’s screenplay.
