Keanu Reeves offers a significant tease about the opening sequence for John Wick 4. The latest installment in the breakout action franchise is set to debut in May 2022, one year after it was originally scheduled. John Wick 4 was supposed to show up recently, yet when the coronavirus pandemic deferred filming, Lionsgate moved it back. Reeves will by and by play unstoppable contract killer Wick, and he’ll be joined by extra returning stars like Ian McShane, Lance Reddick, and Laurence Fishburne. John Wick 4 will also highlight a lot of newcomers, including Rina Sawayama, Bill Skarsgard, Hiroyuki Sanada, and Donnie Yen.
In a new profile with Esquire, Reeves uncovered a significant tease regarding where John Wick 4 will begin. As he prepared to leave interviewer Ryan D’Agostino, Reeves mentioned he was headed to meet with a horse trainer. Why? “Theres a sequencehopefully, hope for the best… in John Wick 4, the opening sequence,” Reeves said. “John Wick is back in the desert on a horse. Im going to ideally have the option to fast-run and run.” At the hour of the interview, he didn’t exactly have a clue how to do that, henceforth the meeting with the trainer.
In addition to the fact that this suggests John Wick 4 will open with an exciting action scene, it reveals something key with regards to the plot: There will be a period hop. The John toward the finish of Parabellum was not really in the position to jump on a horse and ride through the desert, so no less than a couple of months must’ve passed when John Wick 4 picks up. This means viewers will be dove straight into John’s fight with the High Table, skipping past his recuperation and early planning stages.
Parabellum previously spent some time in the desert, so it will interesting to see how John Wick 4 finds a better approach to make the area exciting. It may be the case that the new film’s desert scene will interface with what brought John out to the desert previously, yet that remains to be seen. Since John Wick 4 has officially wrapped, ideally more details will arise soon. An official title would be a decent start, however rumors suggest it will be Hagakure. Anticipate that more updates on this front should show up in the coming months.
