John Wick director Chad Stahelski talks fourth movie and bringing Carrie-Ann Moss and Hugo Weaving into the franchise

I would be lying if  didn’t say I was hoping we’d see Carrie-Ann Moss and Hugo Weaving joining the John Wick franchise to team up with Keanu Reeves and Laurence Fishburne, their old Matrix co-stars.

But it may not actually happen according to director of John Wick 1-2, Chad Stahelski who confirms that at the minute he is still attached to direct: “You know, it’s a little early to say, and I would hate to lead you astray, but it’s a project that I will remain involved in, in some capacity, probably till my career is long over, so that’s good.”

But, as far as getting Moss and Weaving back, it seems he’s not prepared to use do the expected fan service: “Keanu [Reeves] and I talk a lot about where we want to go,” he says.

“We didn’t finish John Wick 3 and have this great big plan of how to go into Chapter 4. It’s something we’re constantly thinking about and we try not to force things. I certainly don’t want to include a cast member to try to get somebody in as a gag and work a story around that.”

While I like the idea of them just making up each chapter as it comes, I find it hard to believe that there’s not an overarching plan. But does that plan involved Moss and Weaving? “If we create these great characters and you know, in my head, it makes sense to put Carrie-Anne in there or Hugo Weaving or any of our Matrix compadres, and it works and if they’re interested, that’s always a plus because they’re friends and I think they’re all excellent performers. So it’s yet-to-be-seen.”

Yeah, I reckon we’ll see them in the franchise at some stage.

What say you all?

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….
