John Wick 5 | Know the production details
Chad Stahelski, the director who will be directing the two sequels and Derek Kolstad, and the screenwriter, who has written all the movies of this franchise to date, are also signed on a new project. They are signed to adapt an English-language remake of the South Korean action thriller titled, The Man From Nowhere. The plot of this remake also has some resemblance to the first movie of the franchise.
Stahelski made the revelations that said that he could not tell a release date for the next part of the franchise. The production of the sequel was halted when it just began and was only about four weeks. Currently, they are waiting for Keanu Reeves to finish his commitment to The Matrix, which, according to Stahelski, will take around a year. Only after that, they will be able to resume productions of the sequel of the franchise.
