It looks like John Wick: Chapter 4 won’t be the final name for the fourth installment of the action series led by Keanu Reeves.
Wrap presents given out show that the film is potentially called John Wick 4: Hagakure, which would go well with the film taking place in Japan.
If you’re wondering what Hagakure means, it’s a spiritual guide for Japanese warriors. It was written by Yamamoto Tsunetomo, who was the retainer to Japanese ruler Nabeshima Mitsushige. It’s also known as the book of the Samurai.

John Wick: Chapter 4 was first announced two years ago immediately after the record-setting opening weekend of John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum, which went on to gross over $300 million worldwide. The fourth installment will feature the return of Keanu Reeves as the eponymous assassin, who was last seen suffering from multiple injuries after his falling from the top of the Continental Hotel.
Joining Reeves, Lance Reddick, and Ian McShane are franchise newcomers Japanese-British pop superstar Rina Sawayama in her film acting debut, Shamier Anderson, Bill Skarsgard, Clancy Brown, Hiroyuki Sanada, and Donnie Yen, who is reportedly playing an old friend of John Wick.
John Wick: Chapter 4 is being directed by Chad Stahelski from a screenplay co-written by Shay Hatten and Michael Finch, who is taking over from franchise creator Derek Kolstad. It is produced by Basil Iwanyk, Erica Lee, and Stahelski with Reeves and Louise Rosner as executive producers.
The film is currently scheduled to make its debut on May 27, 2022.
