John Wick 5 is already in the works according to reports (Lionsgate). Details in that regard are slim at the moment, but Lionsgate motion picture group chair, Joe Drake has just revealed that a fifth John Wick is currently in early development.
John Wick 5
Although John Wick: Chapter 4 really made it look like the franchise was about to gear in a somewhat new direction away from Baba Yaga himself, as per Lionsgate, John Wick 5 is definitely still very much on the horizon.
Joe Drake, the chair of Lionsgate motion picture group during a Q4 earnings call this past Thursday revealed to spectators that in addition to the Ballerina spinoff starring Ana De Armas and the Peacock’s Continental prequel series reportedly starring Mel Gibson, the studio also is in early development of a fifth John Wick.
“We’re building out the world and when that five movie comes, it will be organic — will be organically grown out of how we’re starting to tell those stories,” Drake stated. “But you can rely on a regular cadence of John Wick.”
Other Known John Wick Projects
Between Ballerina, The Continental, and a potential video game, the desire of Lionsgate to keep the John Wick train running has been quite fairly obvious. The director of John Wick: Chapter 4 Chad Stahelski back in April told The Hollywood Reporter that he was very open to the idea of continuing the story of Wick with Keanu Reeves if and when the situation felt right, and Drake now casually mentioning John Wick 5’s development all seem to indicate that those very conditions he was talking about have been met.
How Many John Wick Movies Will There Be
Well, for now, one cannot give an exact number. One thing you should however know is that the franchise started with the release of John Wick back in 2014, and it was then followed by three other sequels: chapter 2 in 2017, then chapter 3 – parabellum in 2019, and the latest chapter, chapter 4 in 2023. Two spin-offs are already being produced at the moment, which are the limited series, The Continental: From the World of John Wick in 2023 as well as the movie Ballerina in 2024.
Is John Wick 5 the Last One
John Wick: Chapter 4 widely has been touted as the last and final installment in the main action franchise, but right now, a fifth movie is now back on the table just after the astonishing opening of the latest movie at the global box office as per Joe Drake, the chair of Lionsgate Motion Picture Group.
Why Is It Called John Wick
The movie had previously been titled ‘Scorn’. The only reason the movie was titled John Wick is that Keanu Reeves kept on referring to it as John Wick. And that’s how the name stuck, it is that simple.
