According to Deadline, McShane has finalized a deal with Lionsgate to return for the upcoming action movie that's being directed by Chad Stahelski.

"I couldn't be happier than to welcome Ian McShane back to John Wick: Chapter 4," Stahelski said. "He is not only an amazing actor but is an indispensable collaborator who has helped define the world of John Wick."
