John Wick Chapter 4 Adds Pop Star Rina Sawayama To Cast

Sawayama joins the next movie in the hit action series, which releases in May 2022.


Pop star Rina Sawayama has joined the cast of John Wick: Chapter 4. The latest movie in the hit action series releases in May 2022.

As reported by Deadline, the Japanese-British singer will make her acting debut in the film. No details about her character have been released yet. In a statement, director Chad Stahelski said, "I'm so glad to have Rina on board to make her feature film debut in John Wick: Chapter 4. She's an incredible talent who'll bring so much to the film." Sawayama's acclaimed self-titled first album was released in April 2020.

John Wick: Chapter 4 hits theaters on May 27, 2022. The movie will star Keanu Reeves once more, and it starts production this summer, shooting on location in France, Germany, and Japan.

While Stahelski has directed or co-directed every movie in the series so far, franchise creator Derek Kolstad isn't returning for Chapter 4. In March, Kolstad admitted it wasn't his decision not to be involved with the movie, but stated, "I'm never going to talk s*** about John Wick. I want this thing to survive and thrive."

In related news, details of the John Wick spin-off show The Continental were recently revealed. The Starz series will be a '70s-set prequel focusing on the younger Winston, the enigmatic character played by Ian McShane in the movies.
