John Wick 5 Confirmed, John Wick Video Game Proposals Moving Ahead

Lionsgate says the company is trying to create a "regular cadence of John Wick."


John Wick 5 is in the works, Lionsgate has confirmed, and the company also discussed how the John Wick AAA video game is coming along.

As part of Lionsgate's latest earnings presentation, president Joe Drake said the film company has been impressed by the box office results of John Wick 4 and wants to keep the ball rolling. The aim is to create a "regular cadence" of releases, and this includes entries in the core series as well as spin-offs.

"Ballerina is the first spin-off that comes out next year. We're in development on three others, including 5 and including television series, The Continental, will be airing soon. But you can rely on a regular cadence of John Wick," Drake said (via ComicBook).

Ballerina is a spin-off that stars Ana de Armas as an assassin. The Continental, meanwhile, is a TV series that stands as a prequel to the movies.

Before this, Drake was quoted as saying there is a "will" and an "openness" to making John Wick 5. However, it's likely still very early days. Drake said the first job will be to "scratch at ideas" about whether or not there is a "credible way" to make a John Wick 5.

The original plan was to film John Wick 4 and 5 back to back, but director Chad Stahelski said he simply didn't have it in him, creatively, to make another one alongside the fourth.

As for the John Wick video game, Drake said Lionsgate is "continuing to have those conversations." He added that there is a "ton of energy" around the prospect of making a John Wick video game.

Back in November, Lionsgate said the company believes "there is a big AAA game to be made out of John Wick," and that the company has fielded proposals for it.

Mike Bithell released a John Wick game in 2020 called John Wick Hex. This was a strategy game and a prequel to the John Wick universe in terms of its story. John Wick the character has appeared in Fortnite and Payday 2. A VR game called John Wick Chronicles was released in 2017.
