JOHN WICK: CHAPTER 4 Adds DOCTOR STRANGE & X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE Actor Scott Adkins
With production finally underway, Keanu Reeves' John Wick: Chapter 4 has added another key piece to its killer ensemble in X-Men Origins: Wolverine and Doctor Strange actor Scott Adkins.
Deadline is reporting that English actor Scott Adkins (X-Men Origins: Wolverine; Doctor Strange; The Bourne Ultimatum) has joined the kickass cast of John Wick: Chapter 4, which just commenced principal photography earlier this week.
Further details on his role are currently unavailable, but it seems likely we'll soon see him go mano a mano with Keanu Reeves' titular boogeyman.
He joins a stellar ensemble headlined by Reeves (The Matrix; Speed) with an all-new supporting cast consisting of Donnie Yen (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story; xXx: The Return of Xander Cage), newcomer Rina Sawayama, Shamier Anderson (Wynonna Earp; Goliath), Bill Skarsgård (It; Deadpool 2), and Hiroyuki Sanada (The Last Samurai; The Wolverine).
While Lionsgate hasn't issued a formal cast announcement just yet, Ian McShane, Lance Reddick, Laurence Fishburne, Tobias Segal, Saïd Taghmaoui, Asia Kate Dillon, Robin Lord Taylor, and Jason Mantzoukas are all expected to reprise their roles from John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum.
Chad Stahelski is back in the director's chair, this time utilizing a screenplay from Shay Hatten and Michael Finch. Stahelski co-directed the first installment with David Leitch, but was the sole director on both Chapter 2 and Chapter 3.
Plot details remain locked away in the deepest corners of The Continental, but filming will take place on location this summer in France, Germany, and Japan.
John Wick: Chapter 4 is currently scheduled to hit theaters on May 27, 2022.
