John Wick Spinoff Centered on Donnie Yen’s Caine Is in the Works

The John Wick universe is ever expanding, and the latest installment will be a movie focused on the assassin Caine, portrayed in John Wick: Chapter 4 by actor Donnie Yen.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the spinoff will be a feature—rather than a series like the upcoming television show centered on the High Table, which director Chad Stahelski teased back in November 2023 would feature Yen, among other characters.

There’s no director attached to the film yet, but the project is scheduled to start production in Hong Kong sometime in 2025. Robert Askins (The Umbrella Academy) is currently writing the script. According to THR, the spinoff appears to pick up with Caine after the events of John Wick 4, where he ended the movie free of the High Table’s shackles.

“Working on John Wick: Chapter 4 was an extraordinary experience,” Yen said in a statement. “The reason these films resonate so deeply is because, like myself, Chad, [and Thunder Road producers Basil Iwanyk and Erica Lee] push themselves to create action, fights and stunts that are not only thrilling, inventive and artistic, but also expressive of character, story and emotion. Caine is an incredible character with a haunted past, and I am excited to return to the role.”

No news yet on when the film will make its way to theaters. [ed note: BUT IT CAN’T POSSIBLY BE SOON ENOUGH.] icon-paragraph-end
