Lionsgate “not ready to say goodbye” to Keanu Reeves and John Wick

John Wick: Chapter 4 enjoyed a strong opening weekend as the action epic debuted with a gross of $73.5 million at the box office domestically and $137.5 million worldwide. The film is also receiving rave reviews and reactions from critics and fans alike. This is the biggest and best movie in the franchise, and Lionsgate isn’t ready to say goodbye Keanu Reeves as John Wick.

This article will go into spoiler territory, so if you haven’t seen the movie yet, get out of here! Unless you are interested.

President of Lionsgate Film Group Joe Drake recently spoke to Deadline, saying the studio isn’t done with John Wick. He explained: “We are not ready to say goodbye to Keanu with this franchise. It is the alternative that there will be”.

He went on to add that there are “many different things we can do. I have seen this movie five times in the last week. I can see the way the audience moves him.

Now, if you’ve seen the movie, you know what the fate of John Wick was. He apparently died at the end after a mad journey of fighting and survival, and was buried next to his wife. The director of the film, Chad Stahelski, confirmed that Wick is indeed dead. But she later said that John’s fate depends on “[the viewer’s] interpretation.” He explained in an interview with Rolling Stone:

“These movies are supposed to be mythological fairy tales and there are consequences. When you do bad things, bad things happen. If there’s another way for John to get out of this, or another way to have a satisfying conclusion to this particular journey, I’m happy to hear that. But you can’t do a whole series about aftermath and fate without showing aftermath and fate. You have to come full circle.”

I’m assuming the fate of John Wick is also open to interpretation for the studio, which means that if they want another John Wick movie with Reeves as John Wick, they’ll do whatever it takes to make it happen. That means giving the Reeves and creatives dump trucks full of cash.

My initial reaction to the ending of John Wick is that he’s not really dead. I could see his death faked trying to stay clear of the high table. That would be the most logical way to bring Wick back to life. The other option would be a series of supernatural action movies where Wick has to fight his way through Dante’s Inferno’s nine circles of hell, which would be fun too!
