John Wick: Chapter 4 release date and everything we know so far (2024)

John Wick: Chapter 4 release date and everything we know so far (1)

John Wick Chapter 4 is here — and so is our John Wick Chapter 4 review! coming for all of us, as the Baba Yaga himself won't be felled by any mere fall. So, for all that thought Mr. Wick's last chapter was his last, we've got all the news and information you need to get caught up. Plus, we've just learned some pretty awesome casting news (as well as another returning cast member who is welcome, but not exactly surprising).

We may not have the luxuries of The Continental hotel, but we're aiming to be as informative as Charon and as courteous as Winston. But, of course, expect some spoilers for the previous John Wick films, but you wouldn't dare skip ahead would you? The High Table would frown on that decision. And you don't want to get on their bad side.

John Wick: Chapter 4 trailer

The John Wick 4 trailer shows off Wick's latest adversaries, and how they'll differ in fighting style. Donnie Yen and Reeves will fight with guns and swords. Bill Skarsgård's character will have a wild west style with Wick.

John Wick: Chapter 4 release date is here

John Wick is rarely stopped, but the John Wick 4 release date was kicked back a lot. Instead of the original May 2021 date, or the May 2022 date, John Wick Chapter 4 arrived on March 24, 2023.

The delay is connected to the Covid-19 film production delays, but not in a direct way. Keanu Reeves' obligation to film The Matrix 4 (also delayed) meant that John Wick 4 had to delay as well.

John Wick: Chapter 4 cast

Only some casting has been announced, but we've already got a handle on who to expect in John Wick 4. That starts with Ian McShane reprising the role of Winston. He played a major part in Wick's downfall from The Continental's roof, but the two still seem to be in cahoots.

We believe that Winston did what he did to help Wick escape The High Table, and give him the ultimate cover: the assumption of death.

New additions to the cast for John Wick: Chapter 4 include Bill Skarsgård as Marquis Vincent de Gramont, Hiroyuki Sanada as Shimazu, Clancy Brown as a Harbinger and Donnie Yen as Caine. Skarsgård will play the violent Marquis, Sanada's Shimazu seems to be a poential ally, Brown is connected to the High Table and Yen? Donnie Yen's character will fight John Wick. We don't need to say more there, do we?

Laurence Fishburne told Collider that he's coming back as the Bowery King, and will be going to Berlin to shoot. After Wick fell, he was delivered to the King, and the two seem to be uniting to eliminate The High Table.

The big news (per Deadline) is that Donnie Yen (Ip Man, Rogue One) will be joining John Wick. The modern action movie icon will be playing a character who is an old friend of Wick's with a similar background and list of foes.

The Lance Reddick is in John Wick 4 as Charon, the concierge at the Continental Hotel in New York City.

Deadline reports that the new cast member in John Wick 4 will be Japanese-British pop star Rina Sawayama. The film will be her feature film debut, as Sawayama's had a solo career starting since 2013.

John Wick: Chapter 4 plot

So, anyone putting two and two together at home can see where John Wick 4 is likely going. Cast into the darkness, and presumed dead, Wick is likely going to be set on unraveling The High Table.

In the aforementioned interview with Collider, Fishburne 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. It's much deeper in terms of the code of the assassin and the relationship that he has with one character in particular who I think Mr. Watanabe is playing... is really the heart and soul of it."

The movie will film in Berlin and Paris primarily, as well as New York City and Japan, so expect another globe-trotting jaunt for Mr. Wick.
