John Wick 4 Keanu Reeves

Despite the fact that it was announced that they would film John Wick 4 and 5 together, that has not happened and now we know why.

After the premiere of the third installment, Lionsgate found that the saga starring Keanu Reeves it was still a success. so they announced John Wick 4 and 5, with the peculiarity that they would be shot at the same time. Something similar to what they were doing with Mission Impossible 7 and 8.

But currently john wick 4 It is in post-production and they have not started shooting the fifth installment. The reasons are revealed by the director himself Chad Stahelsky.

“It seems like the other franchises that have tried it, it feels like they’re doing the same thing all over again, right? As if there was no new influence. Sometimes you need that creative breath to create new things. Otherwise, I’m stressed about making two movies instead of one really good one. I’m just not that bright. I’m not that smart. I’m not that good as a director to project my vision years into the future and make two great movies.”

Chad Stahelsky he always aimed to focus on one film and go from there.

“I’m very lucky if I can pull off one big act, let alone two big movies. The John Wick 4 movie is very organic because we’re based on location. So planning for, you know, 10 locations over the course of two years is hard. And I think that’s also a scam for the fans. Like I’m not doing my best. You get me, when it’s 200 days into a production, we’re all overwhelmed. The choreographers are doing the same moves. You’re bored”.

Better to let some time pass from one movie to another.

“In this way, we change choreographers and rotate stunt teams literally every movie and we’re always trying to be creatively better. And we are trying to do it ourselves since last time. I think it would be unfair to our fan base and unfair to the property in general to stretch it just for the sake of efficiency or financial or creative efficiency. I’d rather do John Wick 4, take a breather, get our stuff together, analyze our mistakes and see what worked and what didn’t.”
