The Canadian actor is about to reprise his role as a hitman for the fourth time in the streets of Paris and Berlin.
Bad for the local thugs: John Wick sets down his suitcases in Paris. The former hitman played by Keanu Reeves will resume service between the French capital and Berlin in the fourth installment of the saga. Postponed due to the health crisis, shooting of the film will begin in June in Europe and will continue in New York and Japan.
According to Collider , the feature film should be released in theaters, except for a setback linked to Covid-19, on May 27, 2022. This will be the first episode without Derek Kolstad in the script, replaced in the exercise by Mike Finch (American Assassins, Predators, Countdown). Launched in 2014, the saga John wick – a fifth part of which is also in production – has met with tremendous success around the world. Hailed by critics and audiences alike, the adventures of the repentant assassin gave a resurgence in popularity to the career of Keanu Reeves, who had spent the previous decade trying to shake off his role as Neo in Matrix.
The actor, now on all fronts, has just signed a contract with Netflix. The streaming platform will finance a film and a series from the comics BRZRKR, written by the actor (supported by Matt Kindt and Ron Garney) and available in France from June 9. According to BFMTV , Keanu Reeves will be the producer of these adaptations and will have a role in each one. Having already lent his features to the cartoonists for the hero of the comics, he could also embody him on the screen. And for the more impatient, the 56-year-old Canadian will be playing Matrix 4 at the end of the year.
