John Wick: Chapter 4’s Ian McShane jokes about how fight scenes featuring Winston were removed from the film’s final version.
John Wise Chapter 4star Ian McShane joked recently that he had filmed action scenes to make the sequel to the action-thriller, but they ended up on the cutting board.
McShane explained the fake deleted scenes that portrayed his character, Winston Scott, during an appearance on Late Night with Seth Meyers. He explained, “They did provide me with a few action scenes, but they cut them off because they were [expletive”. “No, really, they were. I started learning the ancient martial arts called McThai. It’s an ancient Scottish form of martial arts where you don the kilt and race at them. I ran at Donnie Yen, my co-star, and he ran in the opposite direction.

McShane’s remarks were clearly in jest, the English actor has previously expressed an interest in participating in the John Wickfranchise’s intricately choreographed and choreographed set pieces. It could be for a while before getting the chance, though the director Chad Stahelski recently suggested that both he and Keanu Reeves have no intention of being in any hurry to begin work on John Wick: Chapter 5. Keanu Reeves and I have finished in our heads for the time being. We’re planning to take a break and give John Wick a rest,” Stahelski said. “I’m certain that the studio has a plan [for John Wick Chapter 5chapter 5. If everyone likes it and it goes kooky, then we’ll take a quiet minute.”

John Wick is indeed having the time off. The franchise is still doing it in style.

Reeves was also praised as were franchise newcomers Donnie Yen and Bill Skarsgard.

John Wick Chapter 4‘s commercial performance is anticipated to mirror its critical success, too. Analysts expect the fourth installment of the action thriller series to bring in $60-70 million at the domestic box office during its first weekend. If this does indeed prove to be the case, John Wick: Chapter 4 will top the record of franchises set by John Wick: Chapter 3 Parabellum. The film racked up $56.8 million in ticket sales on the weekend of its debut, before going on to gross $171 million in North America and over $328 million worldwide, making it John Wick’s highest-grossing film to date.
John Wick Chapter 4 is released on March 24, 2023.
