In a text sent out to subscribers this morning, Lionsgate confirmed that John Wick: Chapter 4, which returns Keanu Reeves (The MatrixSpeed) as the titular badass, has officially commenced principal photography.

The statement reads, "It's begun. Consider this a professional courtesy. John Wick: Chapter 4 is now in production.

Chad Stahelski will be back in the director's chair, this time utilizing a screenplay from Shay Hatten and Michael Finch. Stahelski co-directed the first installment with David Leitch, but was the sole director on Chapter 2 and Chapter 3

For this adventure, Reeves is joined by Donnie Yen (Rogue One: A Star Wars StoryxXx: The Return of Xander Cage), newcomer Rina Sawayama, Shamier Anderson (Wynonna EarpGoliath), Bill Skarsgård (ItDeadpool 2), and Hiroyuki Sanada (The Last SamuraiThe Wolverine). 

While the studio hasn't issued a formal cast announcement just yet, franchise mainstays Ian McShane, Lance Reddick, Laurence Fishburne, Tobias Segal, Saïd Taghmaoui, Asia Kate Dillon, Robin Lord Taylor, and Jason Mantzoukas are all expected to reprise their roles from the previous installment.

Plot details remain locked away in the deepest corners of The Continental, but filming will take place on location in France, Germany, and Japan.

John Wick: Chapter 4 is currently scheduled to hit theaters on May 27, 2022.

In related news, director Rian Johnson has announced that filming has also officially begun on his upcoming Knives Out sequel, which will see Daniel Craig return as Benoit Blanc, and is set to debut on Netflix sometime in 2022. 

The new batch of suspects consist of Dave Bautista, Edward Norton, Janelle Monáe, Kathryn Hahn, Leslie Odom Jr., Kate Hudson, Madelyn Cline, and Jessica Henwick.

Love the JW series. Knives out good too. Still waiting for Bond to be the movie to get me back in theaters.

I didn't know about the Knives Out cast, that sounds INSANE ! I absolutely.loved the first one, so I can't wait for more.

John Wick 3 was pretty good, and with Donnie Yen around, it should be pretty interesting !

JW 3 killed the series for me tbh, it was boring and shows the series probably should have been a 1 off. Excited about Knives Out though the first one was awesome

Cool, Knives Out was pretty good and I'm a big fan of the John Wick films, though I hope this 4th film is more like the first two and not as unbelievable and by the numbers like the 3rd film (the weakest of the three JW movies) was at times.

I hope this one tones it down a bit... said no one.

Pretty solid cast for both movies.
bkmeijer2 - 6/28/2021, 11:52 AM
Look forward to both, with the next Benoit mystery (which I think will be called ''Beaks Bloody'') more so than John Wick. Both should be entertaining though.

Could care less about John Wick 4 since they kinda ruined his reputation the first movie set up in each subsequent movie but I am excited about Knives Out 2

Great news. One movie is just for the brain that likes checkers and the other for chess…….no wait ! One is for drinking beer from a can and the other for a well aged scotch.

I’m done
