The much-anticipated follow-up to John Wick: Chapter 3 is nearly complete. In a recent interview with a publication, director Chad Stahelski revealed that John Wick 4 film will have the longest runtime within the franchise.
With John Wick Chapter 3: Parabellum being the longest film so far at two hours and twelve minutes, the forthcoming installment is expected to exceed the 131-minute mark.
Stahelski also revealed that his team is almost done with post-production editing of John Wick 4.
“We are on the final stretch for picture lock, and then we have our VFX music,” Stahelski told the publication. “But this is the furthest along I have ever been, this much in post. We love the music that we’ve got so far.”
He continued, “We still have Tyler Bates doing the composition on some of the bigger sequences. VFX are going to be coming in throughout the rest of the year. But we’re dangerously close. In our edit, as far as our picture lock goes, we’re within a few minutes of locking. Our sequences are done. The movie is essentially done. There’s probably another few weeks of tweaking overall, then we lock picture, and we’re about music sound and the effects.”
John Wick: Chapter 4 was first announced right after the thunderous success of John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum, which grossed over $300 million worldwide.
The fourth installment will see the return of Keanu Reeves as the eponymous assassin, Lance Reddick, and Ian McShane. Japanese-British pop superstar Rina Sawayama will make her film acting debut with John Wick: Chapter 4. Shamier Anderson, Bill Skarsgard, Clancy Brown, Hiroyuki Sanada, and Donnie Yen also feature on the cast.
Initially set to release in May 2021, the film is currently scheduled to hit cinemas on March 24, 2023.
