John Wick fans have not one but two further installments of the franchise to look forward to.
During their quarterly earnings call, Lionsgate CEO John Feltheimer revealed that the plan is to start shooting John Wick 4 and John Wick 5 concurrently early next year with a targeted release date for John Wick 4 on Memorial Day weekend 2022. No date for John Wick 5 was announced.
Keanu Reeves stars in the franchise as an assassin-for-hire who has become the target of the various secret organizations that make up the criminal underworld.
The move doesn’t come as much of a surprise. The John Wick franchise is pretty much the crown jewel for Lionsgate, with the first three films having brought in about $584.2 million at the box office. The studio also has a spinoff TV series titled The Continental, set at the posh New York hotel that serves as neutral-ground in the John Wick world of assassins, set to debut on Starz after the fourth movie’s release.
