What Is the Plot of John Wick: Chapter 4?
An official synopsis is not yet available for John Wick: Chapter 4, but we do know that it will pick up after the ending of John Wick: Chapter 3, where Wick completely separates himself from the assassin organization, the High Table. John Wick: Chapter 3 ended on a high note, so it will be interesting to see the aftermath of the events in John Wick: Chapter 4. Everyone believes John Wick is dead after being shot, but he is only injured and under the care of the Bowery King. John Wick: Chapter 4 is set to be the longest installment of the franchise so far, with a run time clocking in at around two and a half hours, which means that there will be plenty to unpack in this installment of the popular movie franchise.
John Wick: Chapter 4 will attempt to delve deeper into the mythology that surrounds this entire franchise, and it will be interesting to see what new elements might be explored in the upcoming movie. John Wick: Chapter 4 will definitely be more challenging than the other movies so far, and everything surrounding Wick will be put to test. We don’t know the exact events of the movie, but we don’t think there will be a happy ending, not after everything John Wick has been through.
The Cast of John Wick: Chapter 4
As always, Keanu Reeves will be portraying John Wick. The 58-year-old Canadian actor, born in Beirut, acted in theatre productions and television films before making his feature film debut in Youngblood in 1986. Apart from the role of John Wick, Reeves is best known for his role of Neo in the science fiction film franchise The Matrix. Reeves told GQ in 2019 that he would continue returning for the role of John Wick as long as the audience wanted it, saying, “As far as my legs can take me, as far as the audience wants to go.”
Swedish actor Bill Skarsgård will star as the Marquis de Gramont, a member of the High Table, the organization with a $14 million open contract on Wick’s life. If Skarsgård looks familiar, that’s because he is! He is the son of actor Stellan Skarsgård and the brother of actors Alexander, Gustaf, and Valter. He is best known for playing Pennywise the Dancing Clown in the horror films It and It Chapter Two. Most recently, he was seen in Netflix’s series Clark and the horror film Barbarian.
Laurence Fishburne will return as the Bowery King, Wick’s sponsor, and Ian McShane and Lance Reddick will return as Winston Scott and Charon, the manager and concierge at the Continental Hotel in New York. Japanese-British singer-songwriter and model Rina Sawayama will make her film acting debut as the new character, Akira.
