The new issue of Total Film devotes an in-depth look to John Wick: Chapter 4.
which also takes the covers: on the standard edition we can see a composition with Keanu Reeves , Laurence Fishburne , Ian McShane , Donnie Yen , Bill Skarsgård and Rina Sawayama , while the one for subscribers has a pictorial style.
Speaking to the magazine, Bill Skarsgård revealed the first details about his character, the Marquis de Gramont , the film’s antagonist:
The Marquis is a young man of unknown origin who quickly rose to the top of the High Table doing God knows what. I’ve always seen him as a slum who now enjoys the glittery suits he wears. He serves as the new sheriff, charged with ridding the world of John Wick once and for all.
The High Table is the powerful council that rules the criminal underworld, and John intends to destroy it. To do so, he teams up with the Bowery King ( Fishburne ), who helped him in the ending of the third chapter.
John Wick discovers a way to defeat the High Table. But before he can earn his freedom, Wick must face a new foe with powerful allies across the globe, and forces that turn old friends into enemies.
Recently, director Chad Stahelski described the sequel as a cross between The Good, the Bad and the Ugly , Zatoichi and a Greek myth. I remind you that the Italian release is expected on March 23, 2023 .
