With John Wick: Chapter 4 rapidly approaching its launch date, with a tasty field workplace projection besides, the Keanu Reeves-led motion franchise will little doubt proceed to claim itself as a heavyweight of the serialized blockbuster division, and because the titular murderer’s endless bloodshed unfolds into an increasing number of unfinished enterprise, one might marvel if John Wick will ever get his Hollywood ending.

In that case, it received’t be any time quickly; even after Chapter 4 makes its rounds on the field workplace, the John Wick mythos will probably be removed from over. Reeves has already sung his praises for the Ana de Armas-led spinoff movie Ballerina, which is able to see the actor reprise his position as because the trigger-happy point of interest of the franchise, and The Continental, a prequel miniseries specializing in the community of resorts/havens for the world’s most harmful assassins, is due on Peacock later this 12 months.

And, after all, John Wick 5 seems to nonetheless be firmly within the pipeline, however with long-time franchise helmer Chad Stahelski enjoying coy on whether or not he’ll be again for it, the street to the fifth movie is perhaps extra of a gradual crawl than we’re used to.

In an interview with /Movie, Stahelski revealed that his priorities lie with nurturing his artistic aspect by publicity and observe, which has at all times allowed him to come back again to the franchise time and time once more to marked success.

“Each time I come again to a ‘Wick,’ there’s been two or three years in between. That’s a variety of time for a human. You know the way many items of artwork or music or museums or areas I’ve gone to in three years? Large. I imply, consider what you do in a 12 months. What would you do in three? Don’t you suppose all that will affect you? I simply don’t suppose I’d be excellent leaping proper into one thing. I would like a bit of little bit of time to get higher. I’ve acquired to go observe.”

Within the case of John Wick 5, although, one of the simplest ways to nurture which may simply be to stray off the trail of the motion franchise altogether for a bit, an act which will outcome within the venture shifting ahead with out him.

“I’ve acquired to get higher. Keanu’s on the market daily getting higher — he’s appearing, he’s attempting new initiatives. I’ve acquired to sit down in a room and go, ‘Okay, how do I get higher as a director?’ I don’t have the identical decisions. I can’t simply direct, direct, direct. I’d haven’t any time to develop. I simply suppose, in loyalty to the franchise, I have to get a hell of loads higher earlier than I attempt to discover [another story].”

It might be a tough wait, however we’ll fortunately shell out our persistence if it means Stahelski can provide an additional dose of indulgence to his artistic course of, which has resulted in three endorphin-sparking movies to this point. We will solely hope that Lionsgate can present him the identical courtesy.

John Wick: Chapter 4 will launch to theaters on March 24.
