John Wick: Chapter 4 is a 2023 American neo-noir action thriller film directed and co-produced by Chad Stahelski and written by Shay Hatten and Michael Finch. The sequel to John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum (2019) and the fourth installment in the John Wick franchise, the film stars Keanu Reeves as the title character, alongside Donnie Yen, Bill Skarsgård, Laurence Fishburne, Hiroyuki Sanada, Shamier Anderson, Lance Reddick, Rina Sawayama, Scott Adkins, Clancy Brown, and Ian McShane. In the film, John Wick sets out to get revenge on the High Table and those who left him for dead.
Development of the fourth John Wick film, formally announced by Lionsgate in May 2019, was confirmed prior to the release of its predecessor. It is the first film in the franchise that was not written by franchise creator Derek Kolstad, with Hatten hired in May 2020, followed by Finch in March 2021. Principal photography took place from June to October 2021, and filming locations included France, Germany, New York City, and Japan.
John Wick Chapter 4 (2023)
In his most recent performance as John Wick, Keanu Reeves continued an astonishing streak of box office success, with Lionsgate’s John Wick 4 generating over $430 million globally and surpassing its predecessor by over $100 million.
John Wick‘s battles against the High Table became an instant hit as this R-rated series triumphed against tough competition on the big screen. Featuring a sizable cast of characters that extended on this super-spy’s dark and violent universe.
Six months after its March 24 theatrical release, John Wick: Chapter 4 will make its streaming debut on September 26 according to a Starz announcement.
On May 24, Amazon Prime Video began offering the sequel for digital rental and purchase. On June 13, Blu-ray/DVD versions of the film were made available.
On Peacock, all three of the John Wick films are accessible to view.
Due to a partnership between Lionsgate and the streaming service, John Wick 4 will be available on Starz during its Pay 1 Window (which will last for around 18 months).
After that, the Pay 2 window for the sequel will be open on Peacock for an additional 18 months, close to April or May 2025.
John Wick Franchise Continue
Many will question if the success of John Wick 4 in theaters—so much so that it won’t be available on streaming services until six months after its release—will result in the production of a fifth film.
Given Keanu Reeves’ outstanding performance and the fact that the first four films’ combined global box office receipts exceeded $1 billion, a remarkable record for an R-rated franchise, Lionsgate has every reason to continue the story.
In an exclusive interview with The Direct, director Chad Stahelski disclosed that he already has a wish list of stars he’d like to work with in a fifth film, including Robert Downey Jr., Peter Dinklage, Charlize Theron, and Michelle Yeoh.
Even though he acknowledges how much people have liked what the series has already brought to life, he acknowledged in that same interview that he isn’t quite ready to join that bandwagon just yet.
All throughout the world, John Wick Chapter 4 is still showing in theaters.
John Wick 4 OTT release date
US fans may now see John Wick 4 on digital devices. It stars Keanu Reeves. According to rumors, the fourth installment in the “John Wick” trilogy is currently accessible for streaming on video on demand.
According to an AP report, the fourth installment of Keanu Reeves’ tireless assassin John Wick debuted on Tuesday, May 23, outside of India, on video on demand.
Wick makes a trip to Paris this time. Although he is still being sought after, he has also turned the tables. According to Mark Kennedy of the AP, this episode improves and broadens the franchise. Kennedy claimed that the fourth installment was “more stylish, more elegant, and more bonkers—sort of like Paris itself.” Additionally, it serves as a somber farewell to Lance Reddick’s character Charon, the concierge at the Continental Hotel, who passed away just before the movie’s release.
After four films in the franchise combined earned more than $1 billion at the worldwide box office, the Keanu Reeves-led “John Wick” officially became a billion-dollar franchise.
The streaming release date for John Wick: Chapter 4 has been announced as the franchise’s future is being planned. In the most recent action sequel, Keanu Reeves’ eponymous assassin defeated Bill Skarsgrd’s Marquis de Gramont, a formidable member of the High Table, while evading his pursuers around the world. John Wick: Chapter 4 established a record for the highest critical acclaim and box office revenue, earning nearly $432 million and a 94 percent approval rating from critics on Rotten Tomatoes.
The date for John Wick: Chapter 4’s streaming debut has been announced, almost two months after the action sequel debuted in theaters. On September 26, just over six months after its March 24 debut, the Keanu Reeves-starring film will air on Starz, the cable network owned by the franchise studio Lionsgate. This will most likely correlate with the prequel offshoot The Continental making its Peacock television debut in the same month, even if it will be a while before its initial distribution.

Shay Hatten and Michael Finch were given the task of writing the movie. Finch acknowledged that a number of earlier movies had influenced his writing in an interview with Looper magazine, saying: “A lot of this begins with Chad being inspired by other films, other genres of film, be it Once Upon a Time in the West, The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly, or be it Bullitt or Dirty Harry or a Zatoichi film. Donnie Yen’s portrayal of the blind assassin makes reference to the blind swordsman in the Zatoichi-centered Japanese film series. Turkish rapper Killa Hakan, who lives in Berlin, is referenced by the name of the character, Killa Harkan.
