John Wick 4 and 5 filming back-to-back

August 12th, 2020 by Marc Comments


So we know that the John Wick franchise is far from over, with the spin-off, Ballerina, in post-production (here), The Continental TV series going ahead (here), the first video game in the franchise recently hitting (here) and the fourth movie in the main franchise on the way in 2021 (here), but that’s not it all. 

It’s just been revealed that John Wick 4 and 5 will film back-to-back with Lionsgate CEO John Feltheimer saying: “We’re also busy preparing scripts for the next two instalments of our John Wick action franchise, with John Wick 4 slated to hit theatres Memorial Day weekend 2022.  We hope to shoot both John Wick 4 and 5 back to back when Keanu becomes available early next year.”

Which makes sense since creator/screenwriter Derek Kolstad recently (here) said he believed star Keanu Reeves would likely not go further than a fifth movie.

Personally, as much as I love John Wick, I do feel the franchise, while a lot of fun, is showing signs of staleness, so I hope the series will be smart enough to end Wick’s story in a high… and a fifth movie sounds like it’s already stretching the boundaries of the story.

But look, I’ll be there for Ballerina, John Wick 4 and 5 and The Continental series, I just hope that, to quote Blade Runner, the series burns out rather than fades away.

What say you all? Are you still excited for more John Wick goodness? Let me know what you all think, gang.

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….
