One of the surprising reprises in John Wick: Chapter 4 is the reincarnated Bowery King, played by Laurence Fishburne, one-third of The Matrix trio behind the Wick franchise. Known for numerous roles, including Boyz n the Hood and Apocalypse Now, Fishburne’s character in John Wick is a proud and devout ally to Keanu Reeves’ titular legendary assassin, and it’s his devotion that got him excommunicated in John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum. In an interview with Collider’s Steve Weintraub, Fishburne discusses the Bowery King’s triumphant return, as well as the preparation it takes to pull of these films.
Much like the Bowery King, in Chapter 4, John Wick is presumed dead. With the help of his other friends, the reinstated Continental manager, Winston (Ian McShane) and the deadly concierge, Charon (Lance Reddick), the Baba Yaga may be able to use this to his advantage. Still in search of freedom from this underworld, Wick will have to fight the best of the best across nations to get to the High Table’s cutthroat Marquis de Gramont (Bill Skarsgård). Through triumph or death is John Wick’s only way out.
Before John Wick: Chapter 4 hits theaters on March 24, Fishburne tells us what it’s like between action and cut, wrangling hundreds of extras for director Chad Stahelski’s ambitious action sequences, and shares which of those scenes to look out for in the movie. One of the next features we’ll see him in reunites Fishburne with filmmaker Francis Ford Coppola in his long-awaited Megalopolis, a project that’s been in the talks for years, and Fishburne teases a bit about who he plays alongside Adam Driver in the film.
