The cast for the coming one John Wick 4 has rounded off nicely over the past few weeks, with names added to the action sequel like Bill Skarsgard, Shamier Anderson, Donnie Yen, and newbie Rina Sawayama in her feature film debut. But as it turns out Keanu Reeves isn’t the only actor to return to the latest movie. While I was talking to Collider about promoting the Netflix action thriller The ice road, Laurence Fishburne announced that he will repeat his role as The Bowery King.

“I should be going to Berlin in a few months or so,” Fishburne said, confirming previous reports that the sequel will be shot both there and in Paris, with additional locations in Japan and New York City.

Obviously, Fishburne couldn’t say much about the details of the plot, but he did get the chance to read the script for John Wick 4, which, as Collider previously revealed, was by. is written Michael Finch instead of series creators Derek Kolstad. So what did Fishburne reveal what fans can expect from the upcoming film?

“I’ve read the script. It’s really, really cool. As much as it is the same world as the other three films, it’s just deeper. It’s much deeper in terms of the assassin’s code and the relationship he has with a character in particular who, in my opinion, Mr. Watanabe plays … is really the heart and soul of it. ”

However, Collider hears that Watanabe is actually the name of a character in the upcoming sequel, and not just another potential new addition to the cast.

John Wick: Chapter 4 is currently scheduled for May 27, 2022. Stay tuned with Collider for our full interview with Fishburne.
