When it comes to action-packed movies, John Wick is a name that has become synonymous with intense fight sequences, thrilling chase scenes, and an intriguing storyline. The fourth installment of the John Wick franchise is highly anticipated by fans, and for good reason.
The first John Wick movie premiered in 2014 and introduced us to the character of John Wick, played by Keanu Reeves. The film was a commercial success, grossing over $86 million worldwide, and was praised for its expertly choreographed fight scenes and the unique world-building that it created. The sequels, John Wick: Chapter 2 and John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum, were equally well-received by both critics and audiences alike.
John Wick 4 is set to continue the story of the eponymous character as he seeks revenge against those who have wronged him. The movie will see the return of several familiar faces, including Laurence Fishburne as The Bowery King, Ian McShane as Winston, and Lance Reddick as Charon.
However, the movie will also introduce several new characters, including the actress and singer Rina Sawayama, who will make her acting debut in John Wick 4. She will reportedly play a character called “Sumi,” who is described as a “young Japanese warrior who is skilled in martial arts and becomes a new ally to John Wick.”
Another exciting addition to the cast is Donnie Yen, who is best known for his roles in the Ip Man franchise and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Yen’s addition to the cast has been met with excitement from fans, who are eagerly anticipating seeing him showcase his martial arts skills alongside Keanu Reeves.
John Wick 4 will also be directed by Chad Stahelski, who has directed all of the previous John Wick movies. Stahelski is known for his expertise in directing action scenes, and he has promised that the fight sequences in John Wick 4 will be even more intense and thrilling than those in the previous movies.
In an interview with Collider, Stahelski said, “We want to give the audience something they haven’t seen before. We want to push the envelope with the action, but we also want to explore more of the John Wick universe and the characters that inhabit it.”
The plot of John Wick 4 is still largely unknown, but fans are speculating that the movie will pick up where John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum left off. In that movie, John Wick was declared “excommunicado” from the international assassin’s guild, with a $14 million bounty on his head.
Whatever the plot may be, one thing is for certain: John Wick 4 is sure to be a thrilling ride. With a talented cast, an experienced director, and the promise of even more intense action scenes, it’s no wonder that fans are eagerly awaiting its release. John Wick 4 is set to hit theaters on May 27, 2022, and it’s sure to be a must-see for action movie fans everywhere.
