Will ‘John Wick: Chapter 5’ happen in the near future?
We know all the fans of the Hollywood actor Keanu Reeves would love to watch him as John Wick on the big screen again, however, there is a possibility that might not happen at all.
During an interview, director Chad Stahelski said, “The real question you ask yourself is not, ‘Do I want it?’ Yes, I wouldn’t mind doing it. We just tried to knock it out of the park. We tried to put everything on the table, take nothing, and leave it all.”
He further added, “Like, ‘F—k it, every idea. We’re not saving anything. We’re not trying to build. Just everything you got, leave it there.’ We feel we put everything we had into John Wick 4, and we feel we completed the cycle.”
Chad spoke about the possibility of John Wick: Chapter 5 and continued, “We feel like we ended it. So, we feel like, ‘You know, that was a great way to wrap up the previous three films and the fourth and deliver something satisfying and fun.’”
The director said, “Right now, if you put a gun in my head, you might as well shoot me. It’s very easy to be repetitive. The trick is how you be repetitive with individuality. How do you put your authorship or your agency into something that’s obviously been done three times before?”
