John Wick Chapter 4 Release Date Delayed to 2023, Lionsgate Shares New Teaser

John Wick: Chapter 4 will arrive nearly a year after the previously announced release date.

John Wick Chapter 4 release date has been pushed back to March 2023, Lionsgate has announced. The Keanu Reeves-led action movie is set to show up a little under a year after the fact than the past delivery date of May 27, 2022. John Wick: Chapter 4 was set to release opposite Tom Cruise-starring Top Gun: Maverick in May. The latest delay comes shortly after the recent surge in Omicron-variant coronavirus cases recorded around the world, affecting businesses including Hollywood.

Lionsgate announced the new release date for John Wick: Chapter 4 in a teaser posted on the company’s social media platforms on Wednesday with the words “Be seeing you.” While Lionsgate has not revealed a particular justification behind the movie’s delay, it appears that the movie could be pushed to 2023 because production has stopped and is yet to resume in Japan, according to a report by Deadline which states the movie is being shot around the world.

The upcoming Keanu Reeves-led John Wick: Chapter 4 features Bill Skarsgård, Donnie Yen, Ian McShane, and Laurence Fishburne. The film is delivered by Basil Iwanyk and Erica Lee and composed by Michael Finch and Shay Hatten. The initial three motion pictures in the establishment, which piled up more than $580 million (generally Rs. 4,360 crore) around the world, were coordinated by Chad Stahelski, who is returning for John Wick: Chapter 4 too.

As referenced before, John Wick: Chapter 4 was recently booked to deliver on May 27, 2022, which would set it in opposition to another much-anticipated film — Top Gun: Maverick. With the new delivery date of March 24, 2023, the film is booked to clash with an untitled George Foreman biopic from Sony, as indicated by the report by Deadline.
