Here's all you need to know about 'John Wick 5'
There can't ever be enough 'John Wick' films can there? Well, don't worry folks, Keanu Reeves will return for some more killing. The scripts for 'John Wick 4' and 'John Wick 5' are being prepared simultaneously, as confirmed by Lionsgate. CEO John Feltheimer confirmed to Deadline, “We’re also busy preparing scripts for the next two installments of our John Wick action franchise, with 'John Wick 4' slated to hit theaters on Memorial Day weekend 2022. We hope to shoot both John Wick 4 & 5 back-to-back when Keanu becomes available early next year." They had greenlit the fourth installment in the 'John Wick' franchise, after 'John Wick 3: Parabellum' had earned $56.8 million in its opening weekend.
So here's all you need to know about 'John Wick 5'.
'John Wick: Chapter 4' was scheduled to hit theaters on May 21, 2021, but the film was delayed to May 27, 2022, due to the coronavirus pandemic. The release date for 'John Wick: Chapter 5' has not been announced.
'John Wick: Chapter 3' ended on a cliffhanger, as we saw an injured Wick struggling to recuperate in the care of Bowery King (Laurence Fishburne) after a gun battle with Winston, (Ian McShane). The third chapter’s final moments paved the way for Wick's revenge against The High Table, which is the mysterious organization that supervises assassins. 'John Wick 4' will continue on this thread, and it remains to be seen where the fifth film will go.
In 2019, director Chad Stahelski discussed the future of the franchise in an interview with IndieWire. “People ask me this all the time, am I ending the movie for a cliffhanger? Is there a number four it’s headed for,” Stahelski said. “Keanu and I have never, from one to two, two to three, ever expected to do a sequel or a follow-up.”
Regarding an ending for John, he said, "John may survive all this s—, but at the end of it, there’s no happy ending. He’s got nowhere to go. Honestly, I challenge you right now, here’s a question to you: How do you f—— want me to end it? Do you think he’s going to ride off into the f—— sunset?” He added, “He’s killed 300 f—— people and he’s just going to [walk away], everything’s OK? He’s just going to fall in love with a love interest? If you’re this f—— guy, if this guy really exist[ed], how is this guy’s day going to end? He’s f—ed for the rest of his life,” the director said. “It’s just a matter of time.”
While we are not sure about the rest of the cast, we do know that Keanu Reeves is returning for sure, as the titular character.
Keanu doesn't need much of an introduction, but here goes. After his performance in 'Speed', he achieved global recognition and fame as Neo in the 'Matrix' franchise. While the first film earned four Academy Awards, the second and third were met with mixed reception. He is also known for his role in 'Constantine'. His roles in the 'John Wick' franchise earned him superstardom as the films were astounding box-office successes.
Chad Stahelski will direct the fifth 'John Wick' film.He is known for his work on 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' and directing the 2014 film 'John Wick' along with David Leitch, as well as solo directing its two sequels. In 2019, Stahelski was the second unit director for the reshoots of 'Birds of Prey'.
