We have seen some major talents featured in the John Wick franchise. Now, John Wick 4, the fourth instalment of the film has secured action star, Donnie Yen. The actor will join the sequel to John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum, playing an old friend to the titular assassin.
Yen has made great strides in Hollywood in recent years. He has lent his talents to franchises such as xXx and Star Wars. He was most recently seen in the live-action Disney production of Mulan.
According to a report, Yen will play a close confidante of Wick’s, one who shares a similar history as well as enemies. The fourth instalment of the franchise will be directed by Chad Stahelski. The film is slated to start production later this year in Europe and Japan.
Donnie Yen will co-star in John Wick 4 alongside Keanu Reeves. The film will also mark the debut of singer/ model Rina Sawayama. The film will continue the events of Parabellum with Wick on the mend following a betrayal from Winston.
