Donnie Yen joins John Wick: Chapter 4 – oh, yes!

June 5th, 2021 by Marc Comments

We have some awesome John Wick news for you guys!

Looks like Hong Kong martial art legend Donnie Yen has signed on to the upcoming John Wick: Chapter 4 as one of Wick’s (Keanu Reeves) oldest friends.

The actor, who was the best thing about Rogue One: A Star Wars story as Chirrut along with Jiang Wen’s Baze, will have the “same history and many of the same enemies” as Wick.

He will join Reeves (of course), returning star Ian McShane along with newcomer Rina Sawayama.

The movie will be directed by John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum’s Chad Stahelski, who said: “We are very lucky to have Donnie Yen join the franchise [and] I am looking forward to working with him in this exciting new role.”

There was talk that the fourth and fifth movies would film together but with that damned virus still out there, it’s hard to know if that will still happen.

Either way, more John Wick – and spin-off series The Continental (which sounds great) – is not something we’re likely to ever turn our noses up at. You?

John Wick 4 fires into theaters on May 27th, 2022.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
