John Wick 5 has been confirmed by John Feltheimer, Lionsgate CEO, during the movie studio's earnings call Thursday. Lionsgate is aiming for the fourth and fifth installments of the action-thriller movie series to be filmed back to back with Keanu Reeves in early 2021.

Lionsgate is "busy preparing scripts" right now, Feltheimer said, with John Wick 4 due to be released in theaters on Memorial Day weekend in 2022. John Wick 4 was announced in May last year, with an original release date of May 21, 2021. However, due to the coronavirus pandemic, filming was pushed back.

"We hope to shoot both John Wick 4 and 5 back to back when Keanu becomes available early next year," Feltheimer said.
