The movie brand , John Wick, seems to be a great success in the box office as the producer plans for Chapter 5 along with 4.
In a Lionsgate gains call that happened earlier on August 6th, CEO Jon Feltheimer affirmed that not only will John Wick: Chapter 5 officially happen. But looking to film both the 5th instalment and Chapter 4 simultaneously, when Keanu Reeves is available in early 2021.
It says a lot of the studio’s assurance in the brand that they have green-lit a 5th installment already. There is no doubt the stellar box office figures that John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum pulled in have been considered into that decision. Yes, Chapter 4 had initially been concluded to be released in May 2021, but that has been drawn back by a year as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic which has pended the release date till further notice.
Well being a lover of the brand, I have got mixed feelings about the news that there could be as many as 5 films in the franchise. My thought for the first two, actually, were a breath of fresh air, amazing as they have done with the quality of their world constructions, while inventing again the action mode you thought had run out of gas with largely entertaining outcome.
For anything at all, one would expect the third film to have completed a John Wick trilogy. With those box office earning, however? the dream is on. Looking at it from the outside, it seems the studio is keeping it going mainly for the financial gain. But Chapter 3(Parabellum) was actually written with sequels in mind far before anyone envisage how successful it will to be
To cut long story short, we should expect seeing a lot more of the titular hero in the next few years, as John Wick: Chapter 4 and 5 will be shot at the same time.
