It looks like the upcoming fourth entry in the John Wick franchise is continuing to expand, as The Hollywood Reporter revealed that Bill Skarsgard is currently in talks to join the fourth entry of the Keanu Reeves franchise. It’s another major addition after recent reports revealed that the film is also adding IP Man’s Donnie Yen as an old friend of Wick’s. The film’s plot still remains tightly under wraps but will be based on a script by Shay Hatten and Michael Finch. The announcement didn’t come in their usual article but through a video on Twitter.
