First, it was Taken and all its sequels. Then Sleepless, With Jamie Foxx. In between, there was John Wick, starring Keanu Reeves. With the first film quadrupling its budget, just as the box office, a sequel was a no brainer. And now? John Wick 4 is coming. Using our industry contacts, of which we have many, we give you the news about the third John Wick film. (Besides, you know these things are always trilogies.)

The Plot of John Wick 4
Obviously, things are still in early, early development but that doesn’t mean they aren’t still developing. The first film was all about Wick gaining revenge for the killing of his dog. The dog was symbolic, of course, as it was “from” his dead wife. The retired hitman went out and killed people in an over the top manner that was awesome.
The second film was him just going out and killing bad guys, again. He was “bound by a blood oath” (as Wikipedia so elegantly put it) and thus more murder happened.
The fourth film in the John Wick movie series sets up a new run of films. Wick will learn that his wife didn’t die of natural causes but was in fact the victim of a poison from an old Wick foe. This will anchor the film with an emotional core that’s needed to prevent them from beingtoo similar. It also allows things to tie up nicely. Don’t worry, there’s gonna be a TON of violence and murder. It’s all good.
Oh, and of course, his fight against the on going gangs, including the homeless group of warriors. They’ll all be coming for him but he’ll “kill them all.”

John Wick 4 TRAILER
It’ll look like this, which is MAYBE us showing you the first two films’ trailers. Perhaps. Maybe. It’s iffy… Or maybe it isn’t. Maybe you’ll read this in 20 years and look back at our simplistic reliance on YouTube.
John Wick 4 WILL BE WRITTEN BY
Derek Kolstad will write John Wick 4, with help from the director, Chad Stahelski.
John Wick 4 RELEASE DATE
February 14, 2020 is when it’ll come out. That’s a little over three years since the second film and fits in perfectly with the non-peak release schedule of the films.
John Wick 4 BOX OFFICE
This is why the fourth John Wick will be made. These types of movies are MINTS for the studios. To give you an idea, here is the cost and gross for the first three Taken films:
- Taken: $22m cost; $226m box office
- Taken 2: $43m cost; $376m box office
- Taken 3: $55m cost; $326.5m box office
In total, the first three Taken films cost a combined $118m to produce and have brought in just shy of ONE BILLION DOLLARS! You just don’t find profit like that every day.
John Wick cost $20m to make and brought in $90m at the box office. To be sure, John Wick 3 will continue the trend of making money and the box office will be $150m and John Wick 4 will repeat that feat.
