Shamier Anderson credits Halle Berry for having him in the upcoming action thriller, John Wick: Chapter 4, starring Keanu Reeves.
Shamier Anderson credits Halle Berry for his cast John Wick: Chapter 4. The upcoming action thriller starring Keanu Reeves began development back in 2019 following the successful debut of John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum. Anderson’s cast in the latest film was announced back in June, when production began in several countries, including France, Germany and Japan.
directed by Chad Stahelski, John Wick: Chapter 4 was initially announced for release earlier this year, before delays caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and Reeves’ commitments to The Matrix Resurrection pushed production back. Although she played the former assassin Sofia Al-Azwar in John Wick 3, Berry will reportedly not star in the new film where Laurence Fishburne, Ian McShane and Lance Reddick return. Further details about the new edition have been kept hidden, and the roles of many newcomers, including Anderson, have been kept secret. Donnie Yen, Bill Skarsgard, Hiroyuki Sanada and Clancy Brown also join the franchise as unpublished characters.
talking with THR during the premiere of Suggested, Anderson revealed that he had Berry to thank for his John Wick casting. Anderson was clearly excited about the possibility and also confirmed that he finished filming last week. The actor’s full comment can be read below:
I got the job and I finished filming a week ago. I’m in John Wick with Keanu Reeves! Shout out to Halle Berry for giving me the opportunity that led to it. “
Berry made his directorial debut on the production of Suggested. The boxing drama was released in theaters on November 17, before arriving on Netflix a few days ago. The 55-year-old actress also starred in the film as Jackie, a scandalous MMA fighter who returns to the ring when her son enters her life again. With Anderson in the role of an MMA boss named Immaculate, Berry’s image made it possible for the Canadian actor to attract the attention of Chad Stahlensky, who served as executive producer.
Although Anderson is clearly excited about his debut in John Wick franchise, the extent of his involvement remains a mystery. With John Wick 5 already confirmed, the possibility is open that many characters may be killed or live on. Given the bloodthirsty, assassin-oriented nature of the films, it seems likely that many of the new cast are on the cutting edge. With war on the horizon as Wick and the Bowery King (Fishburne) conspires to wreak havoc on High Tables, fans might expect even more death and betrayal this recent round. John Wick: Chapter 4 is scheduled for release on May 27, 2022.
