Making a fifth installment of John Wick was no small challenge as Reeves’ character seemed to have Towards the end of Chapter 4 . But on Sunday, Lionsgate’s Drake told The Hollywood Reporter a John Wick 5 This problem no longer occurs. It’s a possible facet for the creative team, and as Stahelski says, he and Reeves are pretty sure that’s the end. (They had previously considered making a fourth and fifth film in a row.)

You could of course interpret the ending differently,” Drake said. “We’re all going to take a break here and think about whether there’s a solid way to get to the top five. But this is not guaranteed. ”

Drake noted, “Keanu and Chad are very protective of themselves and never joke with the audience. So of course we need to have the work done for us… Keanu is so beloved and that character is so beloved; he hasn’t lost that.

Regardless of the fate of John Wick 5 , there will be more Reeves in the future Si as a character, although not a protagonist.

Neither should the studio.” 1235360910
