Keanu Reeves is again set to appear as the hitman in John Wick 4, and the new movie seems to reminisce the first film. The neo-noir action thriller franchise started with the 2014 film following John Wick, a hitman who retired after his wife, Helen, passed away. After her death, he received a beagle, Daisy, as a gift that was pre-arranged by Helen. However, the dog was killed in an invasion led by Iosef Tarasov, who also stole his car.
These events led the retired hitman to take up arms, and John Wick 4 will also feature his struggles to earn his freedom. And this time, he has got company, similar to the one he lost in the first film.

Chad Stahelski Talks About Working With Dogs
Keanu Reeves started his journey to take down the High Table after his dog was killed during a house invasion. But the franchise has continued to feature dogs in the film. While promoting the third film in the franchise, the stunt coordinator-turned-director, Chad Stahelski talked about working with dogs in the film.
During his interview with Uproxx, he said that John Wick is “kind of a dog movie” as he shared that he also loves dogs. He also shared the process of how they got the dogs and trained them for the film. “Seven months it took to get the animals from, like, a year and a half old, to get the skill set, to get used to doing that. And it’s more than what you just see on camera,” Chad Stahelski said.
He also shared that he made sure that the puppies also remained safe in the process and were not hurt in any way. Fans seem excited to see the film with the release of its final trailer.
John Wick: Chapter 4 is set to release on 24 March 2023.
