John Wick 4 Confirmed with Release Date

First, they gave us John Wick. Then came John Wick 2. Then, they surprised us with John Wick 3. Now, as cinemagoers and fans of the plucky assassin-turned-exile are still having their stubs punched at the box office to see the latest instalment, Lionsgate has announced that a fourth John Wick film is in the works, and is set to be released on May 21, 2021.

The announcement came via text message to fans which read: “You have served. You will be of service. John Wick: Chapter 4 is coming – May 21, 2021.”

The series of films has been a boon for Lionsgate, as well as having invigorated a renewed interest in Keanu Reeves since his Matrix days.

The film series follows the dangerous escapades of ex-assassin John Wick, who finds himself in all manner of devilish hijinks when, really, he just wants to live a nice quiet life with his puppy and his vintage muscle car.

Each film has been significantly more popular than the last, with audience sizes growing notably with each film’s release; the third instalment, John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum, taking nearly USD$57 million at its opening weekend box office, knocking Avengers: Endgame off its three-week perch.
