We hope to shoot both John Wick 4 and 5 back to back when Keanu becomes available early next year."
Keanu's fans, however, would be eating out of his hands in the coming times given the number of action-packed movies that are on the anvil. He is currently busy shooting the fourth Matrix movie that had been in the waiting for a long time now.
