John Wick 4 Release Date Has Been Pushed Back By Nearly A Whole Year

The movie studio simply said they'd 'be seeing you' in 2023.

The fourth instalment of the John Wick franchise has been pushed back by nearly a whole year.

Lionsgate has released a teaser simply stating that John Wick 4 will move from its original release date of May next year to 24 March 2023.

It will no doubt devastate fans around the world who have been frothing at the chance to see the next chapter of the incredible film saga.

The end of the clip simply says 'be seeing you'. Yeah, you'll be seeing us, but not for more than 60 weeks.

Be seeing you. 3.24.23.

Lionsgate hasn't given us a reason why the film has been pushed back, especially considering filming wrapped up in October this year.

Movies have also been able to host large-scale premieres with all the stars in the past few months, so it's mind boggling to think why we won't be getting the movie in May.

This isn't the first time John Wick 4 has been pushed back either.

It was originally due to be released on 21 May this year, but the studio had to move the date back to May 27 next year due to the coronavirus pandemic interrupting filming and production schedules.

Director Chad Stahelski suggested at the time that the release date was malleable in an interview with Collider.

He told the news outlet: "Between how much we want to expand the John Wick - let's just call it a 'franchise', I guess - and the pandemic, I couldn't tell you a release date for the next one. I mean, Matrix was only four weeks in when this all happened.

"So, Keanu's gotta go finish his commitment up on The Matrix, which is a big deal and which I think will probably take him until the end of the year. Then we have to go into our prep mode and the we'll start.

"So release dates, I'm sure with every production from Dave [Leitch's] stuff to our stuff, who knows right now."

Again, the film finished filming in October, so unless there are more scenes that need to be filmed or a boatload of special effects that take more than a year need to be added in, it's hard to workout what's behind this latest pushback.
