Donnie Yen Joins John Wick 4 Cast

The martial arts star will join Keanu Reeves and pop star Rina Sawayama.

Martial arts star Donnie Yen is joining the cast of John Wick 4, Deadline reports.

Longtime John Wick franchise director Chad Stahelski has brought Yen onboard to play a friend of John Wicks who has a similar history and shares the same enemies.

Yen is known for his numerous martial arts roles in movies like the Ip Man franchise, where he played the titular Wing Chun master who would go on to train Bruce Lee. His appearance as Sky in Jet Lis Hero is regarded as his breakout success, pitting him against Lis protagonist in a rain-soaked sword vs. spear fight.

More recently, Yen appeared as the blind Guardian of the Whills, Chirrut Imwe, in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and in 2020s live-action Mulan remake. Before his bigger acting roles, he starred in numerous Chinese films (including a co-starring role in Once Upon a Time in China II alongside Jet Li), founded a production company, and choreographed action in films like Blade II, which earned him a cameo role.

Yen will join Keanu Reeves and Japanese-British pop star Rina Sawayama in a lead role of her own. The film begins production this summer, with filming scheduled to take place in France, Germany, and Japan.

We are very lucky to have Donnie Yen join the franchise, Stahelski told Deadline. I am looking forward to working with him in this exciting new role.

While John Wick 4 will see the return of director and stuntman Chad Stahelski, the writer of the previous three films wont be joining the crew.
