Lance Reddick said it's 'amazing' to be part of John Wick series in late interview

Is Lance Reddick in John Wick: Chapter 4? HITC explores.

“How good to see you again so soon, Mr. Wick.”

John Wick: Chapter 4 is in US theaters from Friday, March 24th 2023 and you’re invited to witness the most action-packed installment of the franchise yet. Keanu Reeves is back as the titular assassin pulled from retirement and motivated by revenge who debuted in the 2014 film directed by Chad Stahelski. He’s helmed all of the sequels too, including the latest.

This time, we have some new cast members to cherish, whether that’s Bill Skarsgård as the villainous Marquis Vincent de Gramont or popular musician Rina Sawayama as Akira.

Yet, it’s the late Lance Reddick (who plays Continental concierge Charon) who fans will be most eager to see. So, is Lance Reddick in John Wick: Chapter 4, and is it his final movie?

Is Lance Reddick in John Wick: Chapter 4?

Yes, Lance reprises the role of Charon in John Wick: Chapter 4 but it’s worth noting that this doesn’t mark his final film appearance.

Tragically, the 60-year-old American actor passed away on Friday, March 17th 2023. However, he already filmed his part for a handful of prior projects. These include Ballerina, a movie set in the John Wick Universe, with Lance anticipated to reprise the Charon role once again.

The movie was directed by Len Wiseman and will star Ana de Armas (No Time To Die, Knives Out).

On the other hand, he will also feature in the forthcoming Hulu remake of White Men Can’t Jump which will reach the platform on Friday, Mat 19th 2023, as well as the TV series Percy Jackson And The Olympians, although it’s yet to receive a release date on Disney+.

‘I’m just amazed’

Lance recently sat for an interview with Collider and got introspective about the John Wick franchise and how far it’s come:

“I’m just amazed that it’s gotten to this point because it started as such a small, almost an independent film that I wasn’t sure was going to be much more than maybe a cult hit that I knew was just a great script that turned into this juggernaut.”

He continued: “So, the fact that I’m part of not just such a big franchise, but such a big franchise that’s so, so well done, and it literally changed action films and then created a world that you’d never seen before is amazing to me.”
