John Wick: Chapter 4 (commonly known as John Wick 4) is a 2019 American neo-noir action thriller film that serves as the immediate sequel to John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum and the fourth installment in the John Wick film series. It is directed by Chad Stahelski and produced by Stahelski, Basil Iwanyk and Erica Lee, with a story co-written by Shay Hatten and Michael Finch and based on characters developed by Derek Kolstad. Thunder Road Pictures and 87North Productions are producing the film, starring Keanu Reeves.
The film will be released in theaters in the United States on March 24, 2023 and distributed by Lionsgate.
The film was originally set to release on May 21, 2021, but was delayed due to the COVID-19 epidemic and Reeves’ commitments to The Matrix Resurrections.
John Wick 4: CONFIRMED Release Date:
John Wick: Chapter 4 will be released on March 24, 2023. During the first week of Parabellum, Lionsgate officially confirmed the project, with a release date of May 21, 2021. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the release date of the film has been postponed to May 27, 2022.
The reason for the delay is that 2022 has already been such a fraught year because so many other movies have already been delayed, and John Wick 4 has basically taken on a knock-on effect. Had the film stayed true to its May 27 release date, it would have competed in the Multiverse of Madness with films like Top Gun Maverick and Doctor Strange, which is the last thing Lionsgate wants.
John Wick 4 Cast:
The murderer John Wick was initially released in 2014 and he was dragged out of retirement to take revenge on his unfortunate deceased pet. He had to take an old blood oath in John Wick: Chapter 2. Then he confronted the High Table in John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum, so what’s next for the deadly killer?
The Tick-Tock Man (Jason Mantzoukas) and Bowery King (Laurence Fishburne) took a seriously injured John Wick to an underground bunker where they agreed on their shared wrath at the High Table in Chapter 3.
“I think Chapter 4 is a good continuation of the three previous films, and it has a bit of a finale,” Stahleski said. “We’re introducing a whole host of new characters, all of whom have something to say about John Wick, both in the past and of course in the present. I believe it is a sense of camaraderie and optimism. It’s what life would be like with John in the middle of an existential crisis, and I think that’s the funniest part of the movie.”
John Wick 3 summary:
Director Chad Stahelski teases a “conclusion” in John Wick: Chapter 4, calling the film a “fine continuation” of the franchise.

Wick must make his way through the streets of New York with a $14 million reward on his head when he becomes the target of the world’s most brutal killers.
