Chapter 4 of John Wick: The Pitch Meeting
Screen Rant’s Pitch Meeting series makes fun of John Wick: Chapter 4’s flaws, like how long it is and how easy it is to set up action scenes.
Reeves and director Stahelski have different ideas about where the franchise is going. Reeves only wants to come back if Stahelski is involved, and Stahelski isn’t sure if he wants to make another movie in the series.
Even though the future of the John Wick series is uncertain, Lionsgate has plans for a fifth movie and spinoffs like The Continental and Ballerina. The success of these projects will likely determine the future of the John Wick franchise.
Screen Rant’s Pitch Meeting series has put a bounty on John Wick: Chapter 4, even though the future of the franchise is still unknown. In the latest movie in the popular action series, Keanu Reeves’s famous assassin tried one last thing to get away from the High Table by killing Bill Skarsgrd’s Marquis de Gramont. The sequel, which Chad Stahelski directed again, got the best reviews of the series and made the most money at the box office, with over $432 million compared to its $100 million budget.
John Wick: Chapter 4 is the subject of the latest episode of Screen Rant’s Pitch Meeting series. This is just over six months after the movie shot its way to critical and financial success. The video, which you can see at the top of this story, makes fun of some of the problems with the action sequel, like how long it is (nearly three hours) and how easy it is to set up the action scenes that hit hard. The episode also talks about how the movie killed off Reeves’s assassin character, even though it seemed to have plans for the future of the series.
In John Wick Chapter 4, Keanu Reeves looks like he’s about to die.
After the emotional ending of John Wick: Chapter 4, Reeves, Stahelski, and the rest of the team behind the series have given different answers about whether or not the title character will come back. The actor and executive producer has said that he would only come back if Stahelski was in charge again, while the director of the series has gone back and forth on whether or not he wants to direct another part. Even though he has said in general that he might be willing to come back, he doesn’t have a clear idea of how he would bring Wick back without changing the ending.
Lionsgate has been very interested in making John Wick 5, despite Reeves and Stahelski’s doubts. They even announced it two months after the fourth movie came out, though they didn’t confirm anyone’s return. The studio is also going forward with a number of spinoffs. The first of these is The Continental, a Peacock prequel miniseries about younger versions of Ian McShane’s Winston and Lance Reddick’s Charon. Reviews for this show have been mixed.
Ballerina, starring Ana de Armas and set between the third and fourth John Wick movies, will come out in 2024. Reeves, McShane, Reddick, and Anjelica Huston will all be back. If audiences aren’t impressed by this spinoff as well, Lionsgate may take a step back to think about the future of the series instead of extending it further. But if Ballerina doesn’t do well, the company could also try to get John Wick: Chapter 4’s ending changed to get people interested again.
