It was to be expected that ‘John Wick 5’ would be authorized after it became known that ‘John Wick 4’ has been a resounding success at the box office and everything seems to indicate that we will see our Baba Yaga in action again
Yesterday it was announced that John Wick 4, the new film with Keanu Reeves in his action saga directed by Chad Stahelski, was established as the one indicated for take this entire franchise past a billion dollars at the worldwide box officeentering the select group of sagas that reach this record, and thanks to this they have authorized a fifth film for this universe of contract killers.
What they have not yet detailed is if john wick 5 will be the immediate sequel as seen at the end of the fourth part. One of the main and obvious theories is that John Wick “died” to allow the release of Jardani Jovonovich, his real name, which would allow him to live away from any kind of revenge on the part of La Mesa after murdering the Marquis in cold blood. de Gramont (Bill Skarsgard).
Last night, during the quarterly meeting with investors, Joe Drake, CEO of Lionsgate, assured that john wick 5 is in development along with three other projects: The Continental, a video game and obviously the fifth installment. Only that he did not specify whether it will be a film biased in the universe of the prequels, as they will do with Ballerina, by the Cuban actress Ana de Armas, or directly the continuation of the canon, which is the safest.
“It will be organic in the sense of how we are telling this story, but what is a fact is that can rely on a regular presence of john wick“, he said during the virtual call. Ballerina will have its premiere next year, already confirmed from the first successful weeks of the premiere of john wick 4. We just need Amazon Prime Video to help us with the exact date to find out about The Continental miniseries, dedicated to narrating the beginnings of the hotel managed by Winston (Ian McShane) and Charon (Lance Reddick).
Everything seems to indicate that our theory, and that of many fans, would come true, because if we think about it, there is still the reckoning between Akira (Rina Sawayama) and Caine (Donnie Yen), since he dared to murder his father (Hiroyuki Sanada) during the hotel raid in Tokyo. We imagine that the path of revenge will force Jardani to come out of the shadows where he has taken refuge from La Mesa and the true leaders of this will come to light.
It only remains to be seen how long it would take production to confirm if it is a direct sequel or something else. But wait next 2024 will be 10 years from the beginning of the franchise and hopefully we will have great news with this title. Reeves, for the moment, is concentrating on the adaptation of his BRZRKR comic, which he confirmed at the last San Diego Comic-Con 2022 in collaboration with Netflix. And recently it was revealed that he had the luxury of rejecting Vin Diesel and his Fast and Furious saga.
