Huge news just in, John Wick 5 has been confirmed and it will be shot back to back with the fourth installment.
The news came from studio CEO John Feltheimer who confirmed just hours ago that the movie would be filmed with the fourth as soon as Keanu Reeves is available.
Speaking about the news, Feltheimer said:
We’re also busy preparing scripts for the next two installments of our John Wick action franchise, with John Wick 4 slated to hit theatres Memorial Day weekend 2022.
We hope to shoot both John Wick 4 & 5 back to back when Keanu becomes available early next year.
Franchise director Chad Stahelski also spoke out earlier this year.
The angle they’re working on The Continental TV show right now is a different perspective on the whole world, it’s coming at it from different characters’ points of view and what the breadth of the world is.
Whereas in John Wick, I’m following a time period that’s almost just a week in the life of one man, [for] who everything spirals out of control, which our John Wick story. The angle that the other producers and writers on the TV show are coming from is a very different timeline structure and a very different perspective of character. About how deep the world goes, and not just assassins but everything that’s included.
John Wick 4 is currently scheduled to be released on May 27, 2022.
