“Then, I’m hopeful there’s a Ballerina 2, and John Wick 5, and lots of other things. But we’re developing a lot of stuff and having a lot of discussions with a lot of writers and brand management and Wick universe is my utmost priority.”
John Wick: Chapter 4 is out now. Unless you live in Korea or the Middle East. It'll come in April for you, with Japan trailing behind with a September release.
