John Wick: Chapter 4 is one of the most highly-anticipated action releases of 2023 and fans got a sneak peek at what’s to come with the release of an action-packed featurette that includes new footage from the movie.
The John Wick: Chapter 4 featurette, which is nearly 3-minutes long, gives viewers a taste of the intense action sequences that will be featured in the movie. From the opening shot, which shows Keanu Reeves as John Wick walking through a dimly lit club with a determined look on his face, to the final shot, which features the titular assassin taking on a new character played by Donnie Yen, the featurette promises that Chapter 4 will be just as action-packed as its predecessors.
Chapter 4 is the first film in the Lionsgate franchise not to be penned by John Wick creator Derek Kolstad, with Shay Hatten and Michael Finch taking over writing duties for the project. Production on the film began back in June 2021, with principal photography wrapping in October of that year. Filming took place in Europe, Japan and New York.
The future of the John Wick franchise
Keanu Reeves and other John Wick cast members recently joined the cast of the spin-off movie Ballerina. The project is being directed by Underworld and Live Free or Die Hard helmer Len Wiseman, with Ana de Armas playing its lead character.
While Ballerina does not yet have a release date, John Wick: Chapter 4 is currently scheduled to hit theaters on March 24, 2023. Reeves and McShane lead the Chapter 4 cast, which also includes Donnie Yen, Bill Skarsgård, Laurence Fishburne, Lance Reddick, Clancy Brown, Marko Zaror, Scott Adkins, Hiroyuki Sanada, Shamier Anderson and Rina Sawayama.
In addition to Ballerina and John Wick: Chapter 4, Lionsgate is also working on The Continental, a spin-off series that explores the origins of Ian McShane’s Winston Scott. Colin Woodell is playing Winston, with a supporting cast that includes Ayomide Adegun, Peter Greene, Mel Gibson, Ben Robson, Hubert Point-Du Jour, Jessica Allain, Mishel Prada and Nhung Kate. The series is set to premiere on Peacock in 2023.
