The fourth movie from the John Wick franchise will be directed by Chad Stahelski
Hollywood actor Clancy Brown becomes the latest artiste to join the cast of Keanu Reeves’ John Wick 4. The exact role of the voiceover legend has not been announced yet. But given his previous stellar displays in villainous roles, a chance of him playing the antagonist for the fourth instalment of the John Wick is high.
Chad Stahelski, who directed the first three films of the franchise, will be helming the fourth John Wick movie as well. “I have been a fan of Clancy Brown’s since I can remember. To have him be a part of this project is an honour. He will make the perfect addition to the world of John Wick,” Stahelski told Deadline.
Brown has previously collaborated with Keanu Reeves, who plays the titular character in the action-thriller franchise. The two worked together in the Spongebob Squarepants movie, Spongebob Movie: Sponge on the Run, in which the actor reprised his iconic role of Mr Krabs.
Brown, known for his roles in movies like Highlander, Starship Troopers and Shawshank Redemption, can be seen in Dexter: New Blood, which will premiere on November 7 and in the action-thriller Last Looks, featuring Mel Gibson, Charlie Hunnam and Morena Baccarin.
Written by Shay Hatten and Michael Finch, John Wick 4 will also feature Laurence Fishburne, Lance Riddick, Ian McShane, Rina Sawayama, Bill Skarsgard, Donnie Yen and Hiroyuki Sanada.
John Wick was released in 2014, and the neo noir with relentless action became an instant hit among fans. John Wick, which was made iconic by Keanu Reeves, also became a fan favourite with a cult following. Following the release of John Wick: Parabellum, Lionsgate announced that a fourth John Wick movie will be under production.
