Chad explained: ‘It’s longer than the other three, but not that long.’ 

Though the runtime has yet to be revealed to have an idea the first John Wick was 101 minutes while John Wick: Chapter 2 ran 122 minutes and John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum was the longest of all at 131 minutes.

The director went on to detail where they are in the production as he said: ‘But this is the furthest along I’ve ever been, this much in post. We love the music that we’ve got so far.

‘We still have Tyler Bates doing the composition on some of the bigger sequences. VFX are going to be coming in throughout the rest of the year. But we’re dangerously close.’

The 57-year-old blockbuster actor was seen back in the titular role as he prepared for battle and even reunited with an old friend in Laurence Fishburne.
