John Wick Chapter 4 Officially Confirmed With May 2021 Release Date
| Last updated
People are only just lapping up the brilliance that is John Wick 3 and now we can get excited about the fourth instalment.
There has been a ton of hype about the newest movie in the franchise and the fan reaction has been so big that it's knocked off Avengers: Endgame off the top spot of the Box Office earnings.
But now all eyes are set on May 2021 after news broke that's when the fourth movie will premiere.
A campaign was launched, encouraging fans to text a random number and in return they got a message saying: "You have served. You will be of service. John Wick: Chapter 4 is coming - May 21, 2021."
Will this be the end? Will they wrap up the series? Or will they just keep the good times coming.
In the new John Wick 3: Parabellum, Wick is being hunted for a $14 million open contract on his life, and for breaking a central rule: taking a life on Continental Hotel grounds.
In the synopsis it says: "The victim was a member of the High Table who ordered the open contract. John should have already been executed, except the Continental's manager, Winston, has given him a one-hour grace period before he's 'Excommunicado' - membership revoked, banned from all services and cut off from other members.
"John uses the service industry to stay alive as he fights and kills his way out of New York City."
Mr John Wick, aka Keanu Reeves, has revealed that he'd like to play the role for as long as audiences and his body will have him.
In a recent interview with GQ, 54-year-old Reeves was asked how long he would continue in the role, to which he replied: "As far as my legs can take me. As far as the audience wants to go."
"He's got this beautiful, tragic conundrum - these two selves. The John who was married, and John Wick, the assassin. John wants to be free. But the only way he knows how is through John Wick. And John Wick keeps fucking killing people and breaking rules. We're really watching a person fight for their life and their soul."
Interestingly, there will also be a TV spin off series about the character.
Director of the movie franchise, Chad Stahelski, has already confirmed there'll be a TV spin-off from the movie series, but in an interview with Entertainment Weekly, he revealed that work has already started on them - and that lead actor Keanu Reeves is involved in the creative process.
What's more, it's going to be titled The Continental.
