Donnie Yen is the latest name to get attached to Lionsgate’s John Wick: Chapter 4. The veteran actor has become a fan favorite thanks to his roles in xXx: Return of Xander Cage, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and IP Man. In the upcoming action flick, Yen will play an old friend of John Wick that “shares his same history and many of the same enemies.”

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

Stahelski returns to direct the next installment from a screenplay written by Shay Hatten and Michael Finch. The film is produced by Basil Iwanyk, Erica Lee, and Stahelski with Reeves and Louise Rosner as executive producers. Iwanyk told Deadline that Yen “will bring a vibrant and powerful energy to the franchise. We were determined to bring him on board to John Wick: Chapter 4 and are thrilled for the opportunity to have such a major talent to collaborate with Keanu.”
