Donnie Yen will star in the JOHN WICK spin-off film, reprising his role as Caine

Donnie Yen has officially signed on to star in a John Wick spin-off film in which he will reprise his role as Caine, the highly skilled blind assassin who was introduced John Wick: Chapter 4.

The project is developed by John Wick director and producer Chad Stahelskiwho is overseeing the expansion of the John Wick universe at Lionsgate.

There are no details on the story, but it will continue Caine’s story arc after the events of John Wick: Chapter 4. Caine was freed from his obligations to the High Table and there was a post-credits scene that teased the continuation of the history.

In the scene, Caine is shown stumbling into a town where he finds and hugs his daughter. Caine is still in danger, though, as Akira (Rina Sawayama), the former concierge at the Osaka Continental, has tracked him down and is brandishing a knife before the film cuts to black.

Caine killed Akira’s father, so she’s obviously out for revenge. I imagine the spin-off movie’s story will pick up from there.

Adam Fogelson, president of Lionsgate Motion Picture Group, said in a statement: “From the moment Donnie Yen appeared on screen in John Wick: Chapter 4, he captivated audiences and created an authentic, emotional connection that left an impression inedible and left fans asking for more.

“The John Wick universe that Chad, Basil, Erica and Keanu have built offers a tapestry of fascinating characters brought to life by the most extraordinary artists, and we are thrilled to have one of the world’s biggest superstars on board to continue this journey. ” .”

Yen spoke of his experience with John Wick: Chapter 4 as “extraordinary” and said that “the reason these films resonate so deeply is because, like me, Chad, Basil and Erica push themselves to create action, fight and acrobatics. that are not only exciting, imaginative and artistic, but also expressive of character, story and emotion. Caine is an incredible character with a haunted past and I’m thrilled to return to the role.”

The screenplay was written by Robert Askins (The Umbrella Academy AND Son) and will film in Hong Kong next year.

Dancer is the next John Wick project coming out and will arrive on June 6, 2025.
