Collectively, the John Wick franchise has grossed over $1 Billion to date.

Chad Stahelski and Keanu Reeves united in 2014 for the first part of the John Wick series. Though that film was not a major commercial success, the novelty that it exuded with respect to the action sequences helped it achieve cult status and soon enough, the studios behind commissioned multiple sequels. Although Stahelski was initially meant to shoot John Wick 4 & 5 back-to-back, the mighty task involved in it compelled him to focus solely on the fourth instalment. When quizzed about the possibility of John Wick 5, both Stahelski and Reeves suggested that, according to them, the character was done with. The former, however, has said in multiple interviews that although he isn't keen on taking up the task anytime soon, he could be open to the idea of John Wick 5 at a later point.
