First Look at “John Wick: Chapter 4”: Keanu Reeves Prays Deeply at the Candle-lit Altar of Assassins
In the fourth movie, which comes out on March 24, 2023, Reeves plays the role of the assassin who goes bad.
John Wick’s time is almost up, but his light is still shining brightly before it goes out.
When you first see “John Wick: Chapter 4,” Keanu Reeves is standing as Wick in front of what looks like an altar with candles. Lionsgate sent the neon-colored press photo to fans who signed up for news about the fourth movie, which is set to come out in theatres on March 24, 2023.
Laurence Fishburne, Ian McShane, Lance Reddick, Bill Skarsgard, Clancy Brown, Donnie Yen, Shamier Anderson, Hiroyuki Sanada, Scott Adkins, and Rina Sawayama also appear in “John Wick: Chapter 4.” The plot is still a secret, but the movie is expected to pick up after Wick was turned over to the Bowery King (Fishburne) at the end of “John Wick Chapter 3” for trying to bring down the High Table, which is the top of the assassins’ hierarchy.
“Chapter 4” is the first part of Wick’s two-part ending. The franchise led to the upcoming spin-off movie “Ballerina,” starring Ana de Armas, and the Starz prequel series “The Continental,” which is about a hotel for mercenaries.
Michael Finch and Shay Hatten wrote “John Wick Chapter 4.” Fishburne, who plays a supporting role in “Chapter 4,” told Collider that some of the movie was shot in Berlin and that the script is “really, really cool.”
“It’s the same world as the other three movies, but it’s deeper,” Fishburne said as a hint. “In terms of the assassin’s code, it’s much deeper. And the relationship he has with one character in particular, who I think Mr. Watanabe is playing, is really the heart and soul of it.”
Director Chad Stahelski told The Hollywood Reporter that “Chapter 4” will find “new and interesting ways to make John Wick suffer” through even more crazy stunts.
The director told IndieWire in the past that not even he knows how Wick’s story will end.
“John might make it through all of this, but there’s no happy ending. Stahelski said, “He has nowhere to go.” “I’m going, to be honest with you. Here’s a question for you: How do you want me to f***ing end it? Do you think he’ll ride off into the fucking sunset? He’s killed 300 fucking people, and now he’s just going to walk away? He’s just going to fall in love with someone? How is this guy’s day going to end if you’re this fucking guy if this guy really exists? He’ll never get out of this mess. Just give it some time.”
