John Wick: Chapter 4 will be the longest John Wick film

According to Chad Stahelski, John Wick 4 makes the most of its runtime through its action and world-building.


Keanu Reeves' John Wick will be back sooner before than later and it looks like we'll see more of him this time around.

Don't worry, John Wick: Chapter 4 won't be three hours long.

In an interview with Collider, Chad Stahelski revealed that John Wick: Chapter 4 will have a longer runtime compared to Chapter 3, which goes for 2 hours and 11 minutes. However, Stahelski expressed his confidence that the film's world-building and action make up for its runtime.

When asked about the specifics of Stahelski's runtime, mainly if it will be around 2 hours and 30 minutes in length:

It's in that zone. I think, I'm different. The definition of runtime is that first logo to that last credit. You know what I mean? So the movie itself, I know what it runs at. I don't know the full runtime because I don't know the credit scroll, and all the other stuff that's going in. So you'd have to add on that. But it's in the zone of, yeah, it's over the 2-hour mark, but it's under a lot of the other big marks.

For what it's worth, we trust Stahelski. If he says that there's enough action and world-building in John Wick: Chapter 4, he deserves the benefit of the doubt. Besides, Chapter 4 will probably help set up future spin-offs in the franchise. It will probably use the extra time to drop hints about where else the John Wick universe will take us down the line.

Judging from the film's initial trailer, the fourth John Wick installment will take audiences all across the world with its filming locations such as Berlin (Germany), Aqaba (Jordan), as well as Tokyo, and Osaka (Japan).

We'll find out more if John Wick: Chapter 4 will justify its runtime on March 24.

Speaking of the John Wick franchise, the show's universe will expand with a Ballerina spin-off with Ana de Armas. Finally, Lionsgate Entertainment confirmed that it wants to work on a AAA game.
