When the fourth installment of the action series finally premieres in 2023, Keanu Reeves will be back to reprise his role as the reluctance-filled ex-assassin. The John Wick films have become one of the most popular action series of recent years, yet the series started off much more modestly than other massive film franchises.
John Wick, starring Keanu Reeves as a retired hitman who is reluctantly forced to return to work, was released in 2014 and was not a huge financial success. It made $86 million overseas, which is good for a movie with a $30 million budget but doesn’t exactly point to the beginning of a blockbuster franchise.
John Wick: Chapter 2, released in 2017, was the film that propelled the franchise into the realm of box office smashes. Critics and audiences alike praised the film’s larger scope and more elaborate action sequences. In 2019, John Wick: Chapter 3–Parabellum was released, and it was even greater, grossing $327.3 million worldwide and ensuring the franchise’s continued success.
The original release date for John Wick 4 was May 2022, but the film’s release date was recently pushed back to March 2023. The film’s release date had been pushed back from 2021 to 2022 because of the COVID-19 epidemic, as had happened with many other films over the preceding two years. Okay, here’s the latest on John Wick 4: all we know so far.
When Is It Going To Be Available?
The date March 24, 2023, has been set for the release of John Wick 4.

Who Is Going To Make A Comeback?
Many of the leading players from the previous John Wick films will reprise their roles in the upcoming fourth sequel. Keanu Reeves reprises his role as John Wick, and Ian McShane returns in the part of Winston, manager of the New York Continental Hotel and an old ally of Wick’s who turns traitor at the end of Chapter 3.
The Continental’s concierge Charon (Lance Reddick) and the leader of the underworld intelligence network The Soup Kitchen (Laurence Fishburne) both return in their respective roles.
John Wick: Chapter 4‘s Cast
The cast for John Wick: Chapter 4 has expanded significantly. It features a stacked cast, including a few familiar faces, a few new ones, and pop singer Rina Sawayama in her film debut. The rest of the supporting cast consists of:
- Donnie Yen (Ip Man, Rogue One)
- Shamier Anderson (Wynonna Earp)

Who Is The Director Of This Movie?
This film is directed by Chad Stahelski, who used to perform stunts. Moreover, he directed the second and third John Wick movies and co-directed the first with David Leitch.
Who Exactly Is The Author?
Shay Hatten and Michael Finch compose the screenplay for John Wick: Chapter 4. Hatten collaborated on Chapter 3 with Zach Scheider and also wrote the novels Army of the Dead and Army of Thieves.
Predators, American Assassin, and The November Man are just a few of Finch’s many accomplishments. Interestingly, Derek Kolstad, the originator of the John Wick franchise, has stated that he was not requested to participate in the making of this picture.
What Exactly Is Going On Here?
The tragic events at the end of the third film will be continued in John Wick 4. Winston shoots Wick and then abandons him for dead, allowing him to recover his position as manager of the Continental. Wick, however, managed to stay alive and is now plotting his revenge on the feared High Table with the possible assistance of the Bowery King.
But, Reeves just disclosed that the film’s opening sequence will be set in the desert, so at least we know that much about the film’s narrative. “John Wick is back in the desert on a horse,” he said to Collider. Soon I will be able to run and gallop at full speed.
Stahelski also revealed to IndieWire that the film’s ending will be bleak. “He can’t run away,” he declared. In all candor, here’s a question I’d want to pose to you right now: I’m going to ask again: how the f*** do you want me to wrap this up?
Will he just get on his horse and disappear into the horizon, you think? After murdering three hundred people, we can just let him [go away] as if nothing happened? He’ll be screwed for the rest of his existence. Time is the only variable.
