Keanu Reeves Wanted Death For John Wick In ‘Chapter 4’ But Settled For Close Enough, Producer Says

SPOILER ALERT: This post contains details about the ending of John Wick: Chapter 4.

Keanu Reeves in 'John Wick: Chapter 4'

Keanu Reeves was tired at the end of filming the action-heavy John Wick: Chapter 4, and reportedly asked franchise producer Basil Iwanyk to let the character rest in peace.

In an interview with Collider, Iwanyk discussed the end of the film – and the possibility of additional chapters.

At the end of #4, Reeves’ Wick has a battle royale with nemeses Donnie Yen’s Caine and Bill Skarsgård’s Marquis on the steps of the Sacre Coeur in Paris. Longish story short, Wick seems to expire after the showdown.

But nah. Or at least probably nah.

“After the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th movie, making these films is so exhausting and it destroys Keanu, physically and emotionally,” said Iwanyk in the interview. “By the end, he’s always like, ‘I can’t do this again,’ and we agree with him. The guy is just a shell of himself because he just goes off and goes for it. He was like, ‘I wanna be definitively killed at the end of this movie.’ We were like, ‘You know, we’ll leave a 10% little opening.’”

Iwanyk, promoting the upcoming Wick spin-off The Continental, said Reeves and Wick director Chad Stahelski are “getting together to figure out what that story is” for another potential Wick chapter.

“The way I describe it is that they’re like Paul McCartney and John Lennon, and I’m Ringo,” Iwanyk said. “They’ll call me and let me know, ‘All right, we’re showing up. Here’s where you show up, and here’s what our story is.’” While he doesn’t come right out and promise a Chapter 5, Iwanyk said, “We all want another John Wick. We don’t know what it looks like and when it will happen, but we love each other and we love this world.”

John Wick: Chapter 4 is streaming on Starz, and can be purchased or rented on VOD services. The Continental premieres on Peacock on September 22.
