John Wick: Chapter 4 is an upcoming American neo-noir action thriller film that serves as the direct sequel to John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum and the fourth episode in the John Wick film series. With a story written by Shay Hatten and Michael Finch and based on characters created by Derek Kolstad, it is directed by Chad Stahelski and produced by Stahelski, Basil Iwanyk, and Erica Lee.
Thunder Road Pictures and 87North Productions are producing the picture, which stars Keanu Reeves in the lead role again. The film, which will be distributed by Lionsgate, will be released in 2023. The film was postponed due to the COVID-19 epidemic, as well as Reeves’ responsibilities with The Matrix Resurrections.
John Wick: Chapter 4 Release Date
Release dates for The John Wick Chapter 4 have changed several times, most recently to March 24, 2023, from May 21, 2021, May 27, 2022, and May 24, 2022, respectively. One of the reasons for the changes was to avoid Top Gun: Maverick as the film’s first opponent. Lionsgate officially confirmed the film during Parabellum’s opening week.
The publication of the main teaser clip appears to indicate confidence in the March 2023 release date, as was previously announced. Hopefully, that date will stand. A wrapped gift appeared to hint that the subtitle of the fourth film would be Hagakure, a reference to Japanese literature from the 1700s, and filming took place from June to October 2021.
Due to delays in the fourth film’s production, the fifth movie’s original shooting schedule was changed to coincide with the fourth movie. When John Wick 5 will be filmed and released is a mystery to us.

John Wick: Chapter 4 Plot Synopsis
Although a story summary for John Wick: Chapter 4 hasn’t been released officially, there is a plethora of information regarding what to anticipate. After the spectacular conclusion of John Wick 3, in which John totally broke away from the assassin collective known as The High Table, the movie will pick up.
The leadership of the consortium assumes John is dead after Winston shot him from a building’s roof, but in reality, he has been found injured and is being cared for by The Bowery King. Speaking with Collider, Fishburne disclosed that the new movie will aim to go even farther into the mythology and legend of this universe, just like every entry before it has.
Fans of “John Wick” have been cautioned by director Chad Stahleski that the hero won’t “ride off into the fucking sunset” when the series concludes after five installments. “John’s character might survive the chaos of the series, but the tale wouldn’t have a happy conclusion. So according to Stahelski, the plot of Reeves’ movie might result in his being stuck with no else to go.
What do you want me to do to end it? I dare you right now, in full sincerity. Really, do you think he’ll ride out into the distance? Is everything good now that he’s killed 300 effing people and is just going to [walk away]? He’ll merely grow attached to someone, is that it? How is this person’s day going to turn out if you’re this fucking guy if this guy really existed?
For the rest of his life, he is fucked. It’s only a question of time. Finding the proper tone balance for the movie was a “puzzle,” Stahelski subsequently remarked to Collider. Director said that we need to have “tried to do something at the end that is passionate.”
