The next instalment of the high-octane shoot 'em up thriller series John Wick will be the longest film in the franchise to date.
Director Chad Stahelski sat down with Collider and dropped a few hints about the next Wick adventure.
Stahelski, who has sat in the director's chair for every John Wick flick, wouldn't reveal the film's actual run time.
Instead, he dropped a major hint.
"It's longer than the other three, but not that long," he said, as per Collider.
So if the original John Wick film came in at 101 minutes, John Wick: Chapter 2 was 122 minutes in length, and John Wick Chapter 3: Parabellum was 131 minutes long, our powers of deduction would indicate that the fourth film has to be at least two hours and twelve minutes of action and mayhem.
Stahelski also revealed that they are 'dangerously close' to finishing post-production for the film.
“We're on the final stretch for picture lock, and then we have our VFX music. But this is the furthest along I've ever been, this much in post," he told Collider.
"VFX are going to be coming in throughout the rest of the year. But we're dangerously close."
He added: "The movie is essentially done. There's probably another few weeks of tweaking overall, then we lock [the] picture, and we're about music sound and the effects."
The update is welcome news as we've been chomping at the bit for an update since the first trailer for the fourth film dropped in July.
In the new trailer, Wick looks ready to kick some serious a**.
He's back in his iconic all black suit and, if the trailer is anything to go by, he's preparing for another round of rampaging.
The clip for John Wick 4 promises plenty of gunplay, sword fights and car chases.
The actor is back for another movie and he's previously teased fans with how good John Wick 4 is going to be.
Praising the script for the fourth movie as 'really cool', Keanu Reeves cranked up the hype for fans of the action movies.
He said: "I read the script. It's really, really cool. As much as it's the same world as the other three films, it's just deeper."
Another round of baddies are going to bite the bullet at John Wick's hands in the saga known for its brilliantly crafted stunts, which Reeves loves to perform himself.
Wick promises he's 'going to kill them all', which is generally the plot of pretty much every John Wick movie at this point.
And we can't wait.
John Wick 4 is due to release in cinemas on 24 March, 2023.
