It appears that Keanu Reeves is tied to the John Wick franchise for a long time. As the fourth installment readies for production, a fifth one has also been announced, reported IndieWire. Lionsgate in its earnings call revealed that a fifth film will be shot immediately after the fourth one wraps up. Right now, John Wick 4 is slated to be released on May 27, 2022.
“We’re also busy preparing scripts for the next two installments of our John Wick action franchise, with John Wick 4 slated to hit theatres Memorial Day weekend 2022. We hope to shoot both John Wick 4 & 5 back to back when Keanu becomes available early next year,” Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer said on the call.
John Wick 4 was delayed earlier in the year due to Hollywood’s ongoing production issues. No other details about the fifth installment in the franchise were provided during the earnings call. The three John Wick films, which star Reeves as a legendary assassin, have grossed $584 million at the box office. Additionally, Starz is working on a television prequel titled The Continental.
Reeves is presently shooting the fourth installment for The Matrix. Much like how John Wick films are planned, The Matrix: Reloaded and The Matrix: Revolutions were also shot back to back.
