“John Wick 5” A Possibility After Box Office Reaction to John Wick 4

John Wick 5 may be an option after all. John Wick: Chapter 4 was expected to be the final part of the action franchise, but now a fifth chapter may be an option after the insane opening at the global box office, according to Lionsgate motion picture group chair Joe Drake.

John Wick: Chapter 4, was directed by Chad Stahelski and Keanu Reeves in the role of the assassin, the film garnered $73.8 million domestically. While overseas, the movie debuted to a $67.6 million debut from 71 markets for a global start of $141.4 million, a series record.

On Sunday, Lionsgate’s Drake stated that John Wick 5 is no longer out of the question, but it will be a challenge for the creative team. Drake stated, “There’s a will and there’s an openness. And you could certainly interpret that ending in different ways, We’re all going to take a tiny rest here and then scratch at ideas about whether there’s a credible way to get into five. But there’s no guarantee.”

Drake added that, “Keanu and Chad, rightly so, are very protective about never screwing with the audience. So we certainly have our work cut out for us … Keanu is so beloved and that character is so beloved; that’s not lost on him.”

Either way, Reeves will have spots as the assassin character in the future. He appears in Ballerina, the series’ first spinoff that stars Ana de Armas as another assassin role. Also starring in the film is Anjelica Huston and the late Lance Reddick. The film is expected to release next year and take place sometime between the events of John Wick: Chapter 3- Parabellum and John Wick: Chapter 4 and was directed by Len Wiseman.
