John Wick will be of service again. It’s been ben announced that the (inevitable) 4th chapter of the action franchise is confirmed and slated for release May 21, 2021. This is welcomed and unsurprising news as ‘John Wick: Chapter 3- Parabellum’ is currently riding a huge wave of critical and commercial success. We don’t know anything yet about what will be in store for Mr. Wick in summer 2021; but we can almost guarantee it will satisfy the fans of Keanu Reeves labored running and the ever expanding world of Continental assassins.

John Wick’s journey began with humble beginnings. The first film, made in 2014, was a straight forward “man on a mission’ movie. The highly stylized action from two long time stuntmen turned film directors turned the movie into a sleeper hit. The 2017 sequel expanded the world of assassins, took Wick to Rome and finally made the world care about Latin religious iconography again. ‘Parabellum’ is the glorious cacophony of violence and innovation this franchise was always building towards. John Wick is the perfect embodiment of the ‘Supernatural’ mantra; It’s not ‘Jumping the Shark’ if you never come back down.”

There’s no word yet on who all will star in the upcoming 4th film. You can safely assume Reeves, Ian McShane, Lance Reddick and Laurence Fishburne will be back. I would also hope Asia Kate Dillon’s ‘Adjudicator’ character will return. They provided something that these films have always lacked for me; a truly interesting antagonist. Whatever direction they decide to go, I will continue trust Keanu Reeves, Derek Kolstad & Chad Stahelski.
