The chapter 4 of the John Wick series is now undergoing filming and it is a fact that with each chapter we get to see a new cast and this time again we’ll be seeing new faces to this ever-growing ensemble. The upcoming sequel is recruiting yet another baddie for John to take on. The news surfaced that Marko Zaror who previously starred in Robert Rodriguez’s Machete Kills, the Dusk till Dawn TV series, and cyberpunk action movie Alita: Battle Angel and also appeared in Marvel’s The Defenders as Shaft, is in final talks to board the project as one of the film’s primary antagonists. Marko Zaror would act opposite Keanu Reeves, Donnie Yen, Rina Sawayama, Scott Adkins, Lance Reddick, and Shamier Anderson. Marko has previously worked with Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson as his stunt double. He is also a bit of a martial arts expert, having reached black belt in both judo and aikido.
The chapter 4 of this Wick flick is continued from where in 2019’s Parabellum left off. The movie is once again featuring Keanu Reeves as one of the world’s deadliest and coolest assassins in the lead role. But has Jock Wick met his villain match this time? We’ll get to know that soon.
Chad Stahelski is credited as a producer on the John Wick: Chapter 4 with Reeves, Basil Iwanyk, Erica Lee, and Louise Rosner are also attached to the picture as producers. The script was written by Shay Hatten and Michael Finch. This feature will not take franchise creator Derek Kolstad as the writer. Kolstad previously told Collider, “I’m actually not involved in four and five,”
He added, “At a certain stage the studio will tell you, your creation has graduated, and you wish it well. I’m still close with Chad [Stahelski], still close with Dave [Leitch], and I don’t know what’s going to happen, but I’m excited to see.”
Kolstad continued, “No, it wasn’t my decision. When you think of the contractually of these things, the third one I shared the credit with any number of people, they didn’t have to come back to me, and so they didn’t, and so you look at that and you could be hurt, and I would say if I was 20 years ago I would have been, but seeing what the industry is and how things go, I just believe that you bless everything and hope it all the best, and to the players involved who are doing other things elsewhere. And yeah, it’s personal, so I’m never going to talk shit about John Wick. I want this thing to survive and thrive.”
This new chapter of the John Wick franchise is currently set to enter theatres on 27th May, 2022.
