    Well, this worked for me. Worth the $12.

    IMO Hollywood struggles to make old style, pure practical action films now. This franchise is epic. Seriously, just a throwback to people on the screen doing all kinds of crazy gun and actions stunts.

    I absolutely love this franchise and don't feel like it's out of steam yet. I can't wait for the next chapter but to me it seems like a logical place to end the run. We shall see.

    Also, I would have to imagine KR isn't going to want to do these movies forever.

    P.S. If you had told me when I was a kid on the set watching the filming of Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure that this guy would end up being one of the biggest actions stars of all time I wouldn't have believed it.

    this will NEVER happen, but someone needs to figure out how to merge this series with a massive cross-over of the other action franchises and put Ethan Hunt, John Wick, Dom Torreto, Hobbs and Shaw into the same shared universe. That would be bonkers.

    Who comes out victorious in a battle royale of those action heroes?

    I love Wick, but money goes on Hunt.

    I am just basing it on KR interview where he says he generally doesn't like sequels and will only do movies where he feels like they have a place to go that interests him.

    So, it appeared to me he was sort of inferring that this franchise is probably closer to ending in terms of his involvement verses just getting started. Even if they figure out an interesting place to do I seriously doubt we will ever see John Wick Chapter 8 staring KR.

    Crossovers are fanboy nerdgasms but it would be sooooo easy to make it cheesy and stupid where organically it makes no sense. If they could figure that part out? Yeah..that would be a ton of fun.

    Weird, because I saw an article that said he’d absolutely keep doing this series for as long as possible. John Wick 4 is already confirmed.

    I wasn't saying John Wick 4 wasn't a go or that he didn't sign on. I was referring to the future of the franchise. If future scripts suck I doubt he would continue. Why would he? It's not like he is desperate actor.

    I am hoping they keep giving him new and interesting things to do to keep him going or like Cheese suggested figure out some crazy crossover.

    I love this franchise and would love to see him continue. I just don't see him being around for 4 more movies. I could be totally wrong.

    Well you and I disagree on how God awful the proposed sequel would have been between MIB and 21 Jumpstreet. That would have been a hard pass for me and I love crossovers.

    Keanu and Chad are having a blast because they are creating their own mythology and have a studio that is supporting them and their creativity. Both have said they'll continue to make Wick films as long as the audiences show up to see them.

    He liked Wild Wild west? Ha Ha! Honestly, I liked the Will Smith video and some parts of that movie but it wasn't the TV show I grew up on.

    I read somewhere that Goerge Clooney was originally up for the role of Artemus but he wanted to play James West so he turned down the part.

    I would have loved to see that version. The version we got was cheese.
