Talking about the actors he’d like to see in the John Wick franchise, Stahelski laid out his dream list. He shared that he has a long list of names he wants to work with in the future. “So many! Keanu and I have a whole board of people we’d love to work with,” he said.

“If you told me Cillian Murphy was going to be in a John Wick movie, I’d be like, “Oh my God!” If you told me Jackie Chan or Jet Li.”

While it is yet to be officially confirmed that the studio and the filmmaker are planning John Wick 5, it does seem another indication that fans can expect John Wick’s return.

And as the post-credit scene of the film seem to suggest that the next movie could revolve around Akira, Caine, and John Wick, there could be a possibility the next John Wick film bring in some new characters. It would also be hard to deny that new characters could join the franchise. And it would be interesting to see if Stahelski manages to get Jackie Chan and Jet Li on board for John Wick 5.
