Lionsgate has confirmed they are pushing the release of “John Wick: Chapter 4” from May 2021 to May 27, 2022. The John Wick series is a cult-hit with a massive legion of fans. The movie is the fourth and final instalment in the blockbuster series. Thus, many fans are anxiously awaiting the return of the lethal killer to fill their screens with mind-blowing action sequences. Fans are, therefore, not pleased with the 1-year delay.
The move makes logistical sense, however, since Reeves still has to finish filming “The Matrix 4.” The Matrix is yet another cult hit of Reeves. The Warner Bros film was already halfway through production when the outbreak halted things. John Wick director Chad Stahelski said last month that he is happy with the delay. This is because he wants to give fans the perfect ending to the series.
John Wick 4 Release Date
“‘The Matrix’ was only four weeks in while this all happened,” Stahelski said. “So, Keanu’s gotta complete his commitment to ‘The Matrix,’ that’s a big deal. Which I think will likely take him until the quit of the year. Then we should cross into our prep mode and then we’ll start. So launch dates … who knows right now.
“John Wick: Chapter 4” is one of several Lionsgate movies that has gotten a new release date today. Filling the May 2021 gap left by way of “Chapter 4” will be “Spiral,” the “Saw” reboot that the studio originally dated for May 15, 2020. “Spiral” will now open on May 21, 2021. The Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson sequel “The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard” is likewise being pushed back a year from August 2020 to August 20, 2021
“As audiences from around the arena head back to theatres, maximum will go back feeling that specialness. That simplest the conventional theatrical experience can offer,” Damon Wolf, Chief Marketing Officer and Head of Global Distribution, said in a statement.
