Clancy Brown will possibly face off with one of the world’s best assassins as the actor is confirmed for the upcoming Keanu Reeves sequel John Wick: Chapter 4.
Deadline confirms that Brown is joining the franchise in a still-undisclosed role. He’ll join franchise newcomers like Bill Skarsgård, Hiroyuki Sanada, and Donnie Yen.
Director Chad Stahelski expressed his joy over the casting: “I have been a fan of Clancy Brown’s since I can remember. To have him be a part of this project is an honor. He will make a perfect addition to the World of John Wick!”
John Wick: Chapter 4 stars Keanu Reeves as John Wick, Lance Reddick as Charon, Ian McShane as the operator of the New York Continent, and Laurence Fishburne as The Bowery King. Newcomers to the John Wick franchise include Donnie Yen (Ip Man) as a fellow assassin who “shares his same history and many of the same enemies” as John and Japanese-British pop singer Rina Sawayama as an as-yet-unrevealed female lead, Hiroyuki Sanada (Army of the Dead) as an important character known as Watanabe, Marko Zaror (From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series) in a villain role, and Shamier Anderson (Wynonna Earp), Bill Skarsgård (It: Chapter Two), Scott Adkins (The Bourne Ultimatum) and Clancy Brown (The Shawshank Redemption).
