John Wick fans, get excited! The wrap-up gifts from the fourth installment’s production of the franchise may have given everyone a clue as to what the upcoming film’s title is officially going to be.
According to One Take News, the wrap gifts have the John Wick 4 logo with “Hagakure” underneath.
Although the title may have been revealed, John Wick 4’s plot has yet to be revealed. Keanu Reeves has turned as the title character. Others who are appearing alongside Reeves are Donnie Yen, Bill Skarsgard, Laurence Fishburne, Hiroyuki Sanada, Shamier Anderson, and Lance Reddick.
John Wick will release in the U.S. on May 27, 2022. It was originally set to release on May 21, 2021, but due to the global pandemic and Reeves’ commitments with The Matrix franchise, the film’s release date was pushed back. Lionsgate reportedly had plans to do both the fourth and fifth films back to back but decided in March 2021 to scrap those plans.
Keanu Reeves Reveals What It Takes To Prepare For the ‘John Rick’ Role
During a 2019 interview with Parade, Keanu Reeves opened up about how he prepares for the John Wick role. “I start training about three months before filming,” Reeves explained. He also revealed that the training includes extensive weightlifting to achieve the character’s “signature sculpted back and shoulders.” He also works on his judo and jiujitsu.
Although he is the face of the John Wick franchise, Keanu Reeves gives his stuntman, Jackson Spidell, a lot of credit for his role in the films. “When John Wick gets hit by a car, they don’t want me doing that. Jackson loves getting hit by a car. And he’s amazing at it!”
Keanu Reeves does note that he is in the John Wick films more than 90% of the time.
How long Will Keanu Reeves Continue to Play John Wick?
While chatting with GQ in 2019, Keanu Reeves said he’ll continue to make the John Wick films as long as they remain popular. “As far as my legs can take me. As fast as the audience wants to go.”
While sharing more details about his character, Reeves said that Wick has a “beautiful, tragic conundrum” to him. “The John who was married. And John Wick, the assassin. John wants to be free. But the only he knows how is through Wick. And Wick keepings f—ing killing people and breaking rules. We’re really watching a person fight for their life and their soul.”
In regards to his acting career, Reeves said he hasn’t really thought about its future or what was going to happen until recently. By means of his mid-40s. “There’s this idea that, like, at some point you’re going to be set. And then maybe there won’t be so much working on working.”
