Neo-noir action thriller film John Wick 4 is scheduled for a 2021 release.
The news was first announced using the same text message service the film's marketing team used to promote "John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum".
For more on John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum, check out our look at why we love these films, see what John Wick 3 reveals about his origin, and, while not directly John Wick related, read five stories of its star Keanu Reeves just being the best person ever. For critics, the figures for John Wick and John Wick: Chapter 2 are 86 and 89 percent, respectively. Also starring Halle Berry, 52, Laurence Fishburne, Angelica Huston, and Ian McShane, the action follows ex-hitman Wick as he goes on the run after killing a member of the global assassin's guild. That was almost double the fourth weekend of "Avengers: Endgame" at $30 million.
"Probably in ten years John Wick will still be going", McShane said.
Helmed by Chad Stahelski, the movie raked in US$56.8 million on its opening weekend, reported Variety.
Reeves' character returns with a $14 million price tag on his head and an army of bounty-hunting killers on his trail.
The ending to John Wick Chapter 3 certainly set up more stories to be told in the John Wick universe, so the announcement today is no surprise. After killing a member of the shadowy global assassin's guild, the High Table, John Wick is excommunicado, but the world's most ruthless hit men and women await his every turn. It joins "DC Super-Pets" on the date.
