Nobody imagined John Wick would become a series when Keanu Reeves first gunned his way back into the action genre in 2014, but we wanted more immediately. Seven years later, Reeves’ ultra-assassin is at the helm of a fully-fledged series, with three films under his belt, and the mythology of an underground league of killers with their own rules, rituals, and norms has been effectively built out. Lionsgate announced a fourth film in the series was in the works only days after the release of the third film, John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum, with Keanu Reeves reprising his role as the title character, ace stuntman-turned-filmmaker Chad Stahelski returning to direct, and Mike Finch (Predators) taking over script duties. John Wick: Chapter 4 is finally going to be released after being delayed a year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The anticipation is real.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and Keanu Reeves’ schedule conflicts with The Matrix: Resurrections, the release date of John Wick: Chapter 4 has been moved back from May 21, 2021, to May 27, 2022. In the meanwhile, the new date is March 24, 2023.
Who Is in the John Wick: Chapter 4 Cast?
Stahalesky recently stated that both Keanu Reeves and Ian McShane would be back for a fourth John Wick film. Director David Leitch said in a statement, “I couldn’t be happier than to have Ian McShane back to John Wick: Chapter 4. Not only is he a fantastic performer, but he’s also been instrumental in shaping John Wick’s universe.
Lance Reddick and Laurence Fishburne are two other returning actors slated to appear in the sequel. Donnie Yen (Ip Man), Scott Adkins (Ninja: Shadow of a Tear), and Mark Zaror (Machete Kills) are just three of the proven action badasses who have joined the cast of John Wick: Chapter 4, which has also attracted horror’s scariest evil clown, Bill Skarsgard (It), the scene-stealing Japanese actor Hiroyuki Sanada (Mortal Kombat), a fan-favorite from Wynonna Ear
