John Wick: Chapter 3- Parabellum is the latest movie of the franchise and it is also the highest-grossing out of the three movies. The Horse Riding sequence in the movie is one of the most iconic sequences in the movie. There’s hardly anyone who didn’t like Keanu Reeves riding a horse through the middle of the road with full swag and shooting a bunch of guys.

Elaborating on the relationship with Keanu Reeves and other crew members, Chad Stahelski stated:

“Our success has lent us the ear of certain execs who trust a little bit more now,” Stahelski says. “So when I say, ‘Keanu is going to ride a horse, he’s going to slide cars around the Arc [de Triomphe] and we’re going to have big waterfall set with dogs biting crotches,’ people take me a little bit more seriously. So there’s better trust between us now, and they’re allowing it to happen.”

Recently there also have been reports that the makers might turn the action franchise into a colossal Cinematic Universe. Now with a fifth movie also allegedly under development, a cinematic universe is quite possible.
