No official synopsis has been released as the plot remains under wraps. At the end of the third installment, John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum, Winston shot Wick at top of the Continental Hotel, making sure not to kill him in the process. As a result of the shot, Wick fell off the roof, but survived the landing. An injured Wick was then brought to the Bowery King, and the two agree to team up against the council of crime lords known as the High Table.
John Wick was a sleeper hit for Lionsgate, both critically and financially, upon its release in 2014, grossing over $86 million worldwide. The subsequent sequels improved the franchise’s box office success each time with worldwide grosses of $171 million for Chapter 2 and $327 million for Chapter 3.
Chad Stahelski, who previously directed all three John Wick films, will return once again to direct Chapter 4. John Wick: Chapter 4 arrives in theaters on March 23, 2023.
