John Wick 4 delayed

John Wick will have to wait until 2022.

John Wick 4 has been delayed due to social distancing measures currently in place.

The action sequel, which does not yet have a subtitle, was originally set to hit cinemas on May 21st, 2021, but now has a release date of May 27, 2022.

The move is thought to have been caused for a number of reasons. The first is that the vast majority of filming is no longer taking place, causing Keanu Reeves' other actioner The Matrix 4 to also be delayed.

Another reason is that a number of 2020 films have been delayed to 2021, meaning that John Wick 4 would likely be competing with some big hitters in its normal release date.

John Wick has been a hugely successful franchise, considering its high age rating, spawning 3 films and two planned spin-offs: film The Ballerina and TV series The Continental

Lionsgate, the studio that makes the John Wick films, has also reportedly delayed a number of other films.

These include the planned The Hitman’s Bodyguard sequel and Saw sequel Spiral.

You can watch the most recent John Wick film, John Wick: Parabellum, on Netflix now.
