Washington [US], June 29 (ANI): Actor Keanu Reeves' upcoming movie 'John Wick: Chapter 4' is now in production. The fourth installment in the Lionsgate franchise is being helmed by Chad Stahelski.

As per Variety, Reeves will be joined by Laurence Fishburne, Rina Sawayama, Shamier Anderson, Bill Skarsgard and Donnie Yen in the movie.
