The John Wick movie is named after Keanu Reeves

John Wick is an absolute success years ago. Recently, the scriptwriter of the saga, assured that the film is called that way thanks to Keanu Reeves.

Keanu Reeves is practically John wick. He is much more than the character, he represents the entire saga with a presence and impact so undeniable that they are unrivaled. And apparently it was so from the first steps of the franchise, when it had not even begun to promote the first installment. This was discovered thanks to Derek Kolstad, screenwriter who claims that John Wick is named after the actor.

Kolstad, in conversation with Comicbook, has assured that when Keanu Reeves started talking about his role, he did not stop using the name of his character (John Wick), so any other option was ruled out when it came to title the film. And they had already opted for another option. "The only reason she is called 'John Wick' is because Keanu Reeves kept referring to her that way. The marketing team thought, "Boy, at the moment, that's about $ 4 million to $ 5 million in free advertising, so it's 'John Wick' instead of Scorn." Now I can't imagine her as Scorn. "

What will Chapter 4 be called?

John Wick 4, whose US release date is set for May 27, 2022, still has no subtitle in the Parabellum line accompanying Chapter 3 and Derek Kolstad says he "has no idea" what it might be. . "Parabellum was a Chad thing (Stahelski, director of the film) and I love it."

Apparently, we are going to have to wait for Stahelski to end up finding the key for the next John Wick adventure. Meanwhile, we tell you that this saga will have a spin-off called Ballerina, which already has a director in charge and will focus on a female character.
