‘John Wick’ fans will have to wait a little longer to see the next instalment of the popular franchise as actor Keanu Reeves’ upcoming film ‘John Wick: Chapter 4’ has got a new release date.

On Wednesday, Lionsgate released a teaser for the upcoming film on its official Instagram page, revealing that ‘John Wick: Chapter 4’ has been pushed back until March 24, 2023. The caption read, “Be seeing you. 3.24.23.”

As per People magazine, the fourth instalment in the Reeves-led franchise was originally set to debut in theatres on May 22, 2022.

‘John Wick: Chapter 4’, directed by Chad Stahelski, is also set to star Donnie Yen, Laurence Fishburne, Bill Skarsgard, Ian McShane and more. The franchise’s previous instalment, ‘John Wick: Chapter 3 — Parabellum’, grossed $327,281,779 (Dh1.2 billion) at the worldwide box office when it was released in 2019.
