If you can't get enough of Keanu Reeves as the masterful killer John Wick, you can now perform a dance of joy: Not only is John Wick 4 in work, but even part 5 – this will be shot immediately afterwards.
Hide all pencils – John Wick will cause creative deaths in the assassin industry for a while. Because those responsible for the Lionsgate studio have now announced that the planned John Wick 4 is not over yet. Immediately afterwards, "back to back", the shooting of John Wick 5 should take place immediately.
More about John Wick: Part 4 is clearly late due to Corona
John Wick 4 and 5 will begin shooting in 2021
Lionsgate CEO John Feltheimer unveiled the good news in an earnings call: According to this, people are currently working hard to prepare the scripts for the two upcoming films. Shooting of the two action films is slated to begin in early 2021 as soon as Keanu Reeves is available again. Because next, the Matrix star is shooting a sequel to the same sci-fi series that made him particularly popular.
John Wick films are becoming increasingly lucrative
The John Wick series is definitely a cash cow for Studio Lionsgate. Over three parts, the refreshing action festival revolving around creative kills, a Hitman-esque world and authentic shootouts at the box office worldwide grossed over 570 million US dollars. The income with each part has turned out to be larger and larger, with a relatively constant production budget.
Incidentally, the combined shooting of two films in a row is familiar territory for Reeves, because Matrix Reloaded and Matrix Revolutions were shot in the same way from March 2001 to August 2002.
