There will be another chapter to the John Wick franchise with news that John Wick 5 has been greenlit by Lionsgate. The next chapter to the popular action franchise will shoot back-to-back with John Wick 4, which is due to begin production next year.
John Wick has been a huge success story for Lionsgate and star Keanu Reeves. The last instalment to the franchise, ended on a cliff-hanger with the titular hero battered and bruised and engaged in a war with the high table. The next chapter will not only address that issue but also the apparent betrayal by Winston at the end of the film.
John Wick 4 is scheduled for a release in late May 2022. If it all goes according to plan, fans will get to see the following chapter hit cinemas a year later. Director, Chad Stahelski will be back to helm the films.
Lionsgate is also expanding the franchise with a TV series based around the Continental Hotel, which should be interesting as the studio continues to build the world surrounding John Wick.
