Lionsgate Announced “John Wick 5” to Follow The Fourth Upcoming Movie

It’s been confirmed that the “John Wick” series will have a fifth film, which will be shot back-to-back with the fourth one.

Lionsgate has confirmed that the next two “John Wick” films starring Keanu Reeves will begin production in early 2021. Shooting will begin when the stars are available early next year, according to the entertainment company’s CEO, Jon Feltheimer. Since its debut back in 2014, the “John Wick” franchise has made over USD579 million internationally. “We’re also busy preparing scripts for the next two installments of our ‘John Wick’ action franchise, with ‘John Wick 4’ slated to hit theaters on Memorial Day weekend 2022,” Feltheimer said.

Due to complications brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic and the subsequent shutdowns, the fourth movie—which was set for release on May 21, 2021—has been pushed back to May 27, 2022. Feltheimer noted: “With the appetite for fresh content at an all-time high and options for consumers dwindling due to the global shutdown, we made it a strategic priority to be one of the first major studios back into production. Over the past five months, we’ve put together a thoughtful strategy to restart production with protocols to best ensure the safety of cast and crew.”
