The fourth part was earlier scheduled to hit the screens on May 21, 2021, but was pushed to May 27, 2022, due to the coronavirus pandemic. Reeves is currently shooting Matrix 4 in Berlin after production on the Warner Bros franchise film had to be halted due to COVID-19.

John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum, starring Keanu Reeves, bowed with $35 million from 66 international markets. The film saw Keanu return as a former hitman on the run from assassins. Stuntman-turned-director Chad Stahelski helmed the movie, which also stars Halle Berry, Laurence Fishburne, Mark Dacascos, Asia Kate Dillon, Ian McShane and Lance Reddick. Now, with the latest announcement of its fourth and fifth installment, fans cannot contain their excitement.
