John Wick 4

A tracker pursuing John for a contract interrupts them, dubbed “Mr. Nobody” by de Gramont. De Gramont decides that the contract money is insufficient and allows John to go free. Akira also escapes, but Caine kills Koji. When John returns to New York, he encounters a vengeful Winston at Charon’s gravesite. Winston suggests that John challenge De Gramont to a duel, as winning will release him from the High Table’s obligations. According to the Table’s traditions, John can only request a duel on behalf of a crime family; however, given his previous severance from the Ruska Roma,John travels to their Berlin headquarters to receive a new crest denoting his membership in the syndicate. Katia, his adoptive sister, agrees to do in exchange of killing Killa who murdered her father.

Killa is found and killed in John’s nightclub. Katia then tattoos a Ruska Roma crest on John’s arm, allowing him to formally request a duel with de Gramont through Winston, who requests that the New York Continental be rebuilt with him reinstated as manager as part of his terms if John wins. In a meeting moderated by the Harbinger, the Table’s emissary, John and de Gramont decide the terms of their duel in Paris. De Gramont appoints Caine, a reluctant fighter, to fight in his place. The duel is scheduled for the following sunrise at Sacré-Coeur; the Harbinger informs John that if he fails to appear on time, both he and Winston will be executed. The Bowery King arrives in Paris to present John with a weapon as well as a new ballistic suit.

De Gramont tries to keep John from attending the duel by putting a $40 million contract on his head. On his way to Sacré-Coeur, John fights off hordes of assassins, including Mr. Nobody, but the latter stops hunting John after he saves Mr. Nobody’s dog from being killed by Chidi. Caine helps John fight his way up the stairs to the Sacré-Cur; Chidi nearly kills John, but Mr. Nobody kills him first. John and Caine make it to the summit just in time to save Winston. Caine severely wounds John in the first two rounds of their pistol duel. De Gramont requests that John be executed personally for the final round, but John, who has yet to fire his gun, shoots and kills de Gramont. Although the Harbinger declares him free of his debt to the High Table, John dies peacefully as a result of his wounds.

Winston and the Bowery King attend John’s funeral after Winston is reinstated as manager of the Continental, having buried him next to his late wife Helen. Akira approaches Caine later, seeking to avenge her father’s death.

Lionsgate announced John Wick: Chapter 4 on May 20, 2019, via their opt-in “John Wick” text update service, writing, “You have served. You will be useful. “John Wick: Chapter 4 will be released on May 21, 2021.”

Prior to the release of the third film, director Chad Stahelski confirmed on a Reddit “AMA” thread that there had been discussions for another film, and that he would be involved if the threequel was successful.

Despite this announcement, it was not confirmed whether or not star Keanu Reeves would return for a new installment. He did, however, tell GQ that he would continue to play the role for as long as the audience wanted him to, saying, “As far as my legs can take me, as far as the audience wants me to.”

Stahelski later teased the fourth film in an interview with IndieWire, saying Wick would not have a “happy ending” in the fourth film, saying, “John may survive all of this shit, but there’s no happy ending.” He has nowhere to go. I challenge you right now, and here’s a question for you: How do you want me to end this? Do you believe he’ll ride off into the fucking sunset? He’s murdered 300 fucking people and now he’s just going to, everything’s fine? He’ll just fall in love with a love interest?How is this guy’s day going to end if you’re this fucking guy, if this guy really existsed? He’s going to be fucked for the rest of his life. It is simply a matter of time.” Furthermore, Stahelski hinted at Winston’s fate in the fourth film, saying, “He intended to shoot him. Did he intend to murder him? That’s open to interpretation; you can take it one of two ways, and that’s where John Wick 4 picks up some of the unanswered questions.” The studio decided to replace series creator Derek Kolstad with Shay Hatten, who will write the script in May 2020.

After seeing their film Concrete Cowboy, Stahelski hired Ricky Staub and Dan Walser to write the script in February. Predators screenwriter Michael Finch took over screenwriting duties in March 2021.

Then we’ll go into preparation mode before we begin. So release dates are unknown at this time.”
