Keanu Reeves & Donnie Yen’s John Wick 4 Fight Teased By Director

As audiences eagerly await the two facing off on screen, director Chad Stahelski is teasing new details for Keanu Reeves and Donnie Yen’s John Wick 4 fight. Reeves is returning to lead the ensemble cast of the upcoming action sequel as the titular former assassin who was pulled out of his quiet life of retirement by the son of a mobster killing the puppy gifted to him by his late wife. Plot details are currently unknown for John Wick 4, though it is expected to continue from the cliffhanger ending of Chapter 3 — Parabellum as Reeves’ protagonist gears up to go to war with the High Table after being shot and left for dead by Winston and the Adjudicator.

Alongside Reeves, John Wick 4 will see the franchise returns of Laurence Fishburne as The Bowery King, Ian McShane as New York’s Continental Hotel manager Winston and Lance Reddick as its concierge, Charon. The film will also mark the franchise debuts of Rina Sawayama, Donnie Yen, Shamier Anderson, Bill Skarsgård, Hiroyuki Sanada, Scott Adkins and Clancy Brown.

While appearing at Collider’s Directors on Directing Panel at San Diego Comic-Con, Chad Stahelski offered some exciting teases of what’s to come from John Wick 4. In looking at the various combat seen in the film’s trailer, the director recalled his excitement in filming Keanu Reeves and Donnie Yen’s fight and shared new details of what’s to come from the sequence. See what Stahelski said below:

“Well, again, the 18-year-old me would have been like, ‘Oh, my God, I can’t believe I’d do this.’ That’s, I’m not going to lie, I giggle. I’d make jokes all the time. It’s like Donnie would come up with a question, I’d start giggling. He’s like, ‘What’s wrong with you, man?’ I was, ‘I’m directing Donnie Yen, what do you think I’m doing?’ So, I’m standing in between, you’ve got Donnie Yen and you got Keanu Reeves, and you’re touching hands with all of them, blocking out stuff. And you’re like, ‘Holy shit. Those are really real.’So, it always comes down to, I can do the Donnie Yen triple kick. I can do all this, but you also want to do something different. So, you start sitting, you come at it from character, and you have a lot of discussions with the guys going, ‘Okay, Donnie is amazing at this. Keanu is amazing at this. They’re both great actors, so let’s lean onto that, and let’s do something we haven’t seen before.’ So now, that Donnie Yen with a sword and a pistol and Keanu with a samurai sword and a couple of pistols and throwing an AR-15 and a glass mirror room with Japanese artifacts. And yeah, throw in a couple of dogs, and let’s see what happens.”

Keanu Reeves in John Wick 4

While details for most of the new cast members has been kept largely under wraps throughout its filming and development, the first John Wick 4 trailer released during SDCC offered some insight for who would act as an ally for Reeves and who would be working against him. Yen’s character seemed to be working in favor of the High Table, being seated next to Skarsgård’s still undisclosed character and going toe-to-toe with Reeves in the footage. Interestingly, the trailer also showed Yen facing off against Hiroyuki Sanada’s yet-unnamed character, seemingly indicating that the Mortal Kombat star will act as an ally for Wick in the film.

Stahelski’s excitement for filming Keanu Reeves and Donnie Yen’s fight in John Wick 4 is sure to resonate well with action genre fans, namely with his tease of the various instruments used in the sequence, including an AR-15 and dogs. Though some may see the inclusion of the latter as a potential hint of Halle Berry’s return from John Wick: Chapter 3 — Parabellum, the Oscar winner previously confirmed she wouldn’t be returning in the sequel, but has left the door open for a potential spinoff or other franchise appearance. Audiences will have to keep their eyes peeled for further John Wick 4 details leading up to its March 24, 2023 release.

‘I am officially off the market’: When Margot Robbie revealed she made the ‘conscious’ decision of not dating actors

Margot Robbie revealed her decision to not date actors because of the media scrutiny that came with a public relationship of two high-profile actors
Back in 2015, A-lister Margot Robbie made a declaration that she would not be dating any actors. The actress may have alluded to her fiance Tom Ackerley, who she married the following year in 2016. In an exclusive interview with Marie Claire, she revealed that being in a relationship as an actor herself came with its own set of challenges. She believed that dating someone who was popular would add on to the media scrutiny.

Margot Robbie opened up on why she made a conscious decision to not date actorsTalking to Marie Claire, she claimed, “I am officially off the market.” She then shared the reasoning behind her decision and added, “I made a conscious decision not to date actors.” She continued to explain, “But not because I hate actors. That’s a nasty generalization to make, and that’s not the case. People take such an interest in your love life when you have a profile, it puts a lot of stress on a relationship.”
The Barbie actress continued, “So two people with profiles, I figure it’s just double the amount of scrutiny, and I’d like to avoid that at all costs.” This came after reports of her locking lips with Tarzan co-star Alexander Skarsgard started making rounds. It was reported that she was caught kissing the actor during the Sundance Film Festival.

Margot Robbie revealed she opted for a minimal lifestyle even after becoming an actorIn the interview, Robbie also opened up about how she was adapting to fame. She shared, “I have a normal 24-year-old life. If I were a waitress, I’d probably have the exact same lifestyle. I’d go to the same clubs I go to already, live in the same house with the same housemates, hang out with the same people.”
However, Margot Robbie tied the knot with Tom Ackerley who is an English producer and actor. The duo met on the sets of 2013 movie Suite Francaise where Tom was working as an assistant director. Post marriage, both of them launched their production company LuckyChap Entertainment.

‘Rocky’ Was Quite Different In His Original Screenplay, Sylvester Stallone Claims

Sylvester Stallone took his friend’s advice on a rewrite of the original screenplay to Rocky. A few tweaks later, he was on his way to major success.
In the new Netflix documentary Sly, Stallone discussed how he initially conceived of the project, which had a much harder edge. In the early version, Rocky was depicted as a “thuggish” character, inspired by Martin Scorsese’s crime drama, Mean Streets.

But Stallone’s perspective changed when a friend read the script and thought the boxer was too cruel for audiences to actually care about him.
Stallone recalled her crying.

“She goes, ‘I hate Rocky. I hate him. He’s cruel. He hits people. He beats them up.’”
Stallone took it to heart, and asked what he could do to soften the character.

“I said, ‘what if you stop short of it?’ Like, maybe he almost did. He could have, that’s his job, but he doesn’t?’ ‘That’d be nice,’” he added. “I said, ‘What if he had a girlfriend or something?’ ‘Yeah, that’s nice.’ So I go back, start writing that: ‘Girlfriend. Nice.’”
$117 million in box office later, a franchise was born.

Stallone also revealed that actor Dolph Lundgren sent him to the hospital during one fight scene in Rocky IV.
“Dolph Lundgren… he pulverized me,” Stallone says in the documentary. “Later that night, my heart started to swell—which happens when the heart hits the chest—and then my blood pressure went up to 260, and they thought I was going to be talking to angels. Next thing I know, I’m in intensive care, where I’m surrounded by nuns, and I thought, ‘OK, that’s curtains.’”
Stallone was in the hospital for nine days following the incident, praying for “one more round.”
“For the first minute of the fight, it is going to be a free-for-all,” Stallone told Lundgren. The Swedish actor joked in a separate interview that all he did was “obey orders,” explaining, “[Stallone] was the boss. I did what he told me.”
Doctors allegedly told Stallone that he received a blow to the ribs that made his heart rattle around in his ribcage, a condition typically seen in head-on collisions. “I did hit a bus, of sorts,” Stallone joked.
