‘John Wick’ director on 5th installment speculation: ‘we feel like we ended it’
'John Wick' director Chad Stahelski has hinted chapter 5 might not happen
John Wick director Chad Stahelski has given a major update on the fifth chapter of the film, after the massive success of John Wick: Chapter 4.
The 54-year-old director, who previously showed hopes and openness about the fifth chapter of John Wick , now thinks otherwise, as he recently revealed that John Wick 5 might not happen.
In an interview with The Direct, when Stahelski was asked about the future installment he responded, "the real question you ask yourself is not, ‘Do I want it?’ Yes, I wouldn’t mind doing it. We just tried to knock it out of the park."
He further continued, "we tried to put everything on the table, take nothing, and leave it all. Like, ‘F—k it, every idea. We’re not saving anything."
"We’re not trying to build. Just everything you got, leave it there.’ We feel we put everything we had into John Wick 4, and we feel we completed the cycle. We feel like we ended it," he added.
"So, we feel like, ‘You know, that was a great way to wrap up the previous three films and the fourth and deliver something satisfying and fun.’ Right now, if you put a gun in my head, you might as well shoot me. It’s very easy to be repetitive," Stahelski noted.
"The trick is how you be repetitive with individuality. How do you put your authorship or your agency into something that’s obviously been done three times before?" he added.
