Keanu Reeves says John Wick 4 will ‘open up the world’ while teasing some of the stunts
I’m not always the biggest fan of action movies, but I have developed a slow appreciation for the “John Wick” franchise. It’s the kind of show I’ve followed on planes and streaming services.
The original “John Wick” broke a fundamental rule of filmmaking that audiences generally don’t respond well to movies where dogs die. There’s even a whole website called Does the dog die? which is dedicated to providing trigger warnings for this type of content. Still, “John Wick” managed to build his entire plot around the concept of an assassin coming out of retirement to avenge his dog’s death.
The series has already taken us to a hotel for assassins, the Continental, and built an interesting world. Now, from Reeves’ comments, it looks like he’s set to expand his universe even more.
The latest movie, âJohn Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum,â teased a team between Laurence Fishburne’s Wick and Bowery King for âChapter 4,â so if you’re disappointed that âThe Matrix Resurrectionsâ doesn’t bring Fishburne back as Morpheus, you’ll still be able to get your Reeves / Fishburne patch in the world of John Wick.
âJohn Wick: Chapter 4â hits theaters on May 27, 2022.
