MANILA, Philippines – He’ll be back! Lionsgate has confirmed that a fifth installment of the hit John Wick film franchise is in early development, the studio announced on Thursday, May 24.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Motion Picture Group chair Joe Drake said that they are currently “building out the world” with the release of its first spin-off Ballerina in 2024, and three others in development, such as upcoming TV series The Continental and John Wick 5.
“When that 5 movie comes, it will be organic – [it] will be organically grown out of how we’re starting to tell those stories. But you can rely on a regular cadence of John Wick,” Drake said. There are no details yet on the fifth film’s cast, crew, plot, or production timeline.
