Shamier Anderson has struck a deal to join the cast of John Wick: Chapter 4, the latest photo in the Keanu Reeves-led franchise in the works at Lionsgate. Anderson joins recently added Donnie Yen and female lead Rina Sawayama in the project, which is directed by Chad Stahelski from a screenplay by Shay Hatten and Michael Finch.
The plot of the sequel is secret, as is Anderson playing. The photo begins production this summer on location in France, Germany and Japan.
Basil Iwanyk, Erica Lee and Stahelski are producing, with Reeves and Louise Rosner executive producing.
Canadian Anderson, brother of fellow actor Stephan James, has feature film credits that include Stowaway and City of lies, and on TV on Syfy’s Wynonna earp and that of Amazon Goliath. He also recently teamed up with James and their younger brother Sheldon James to co-found Bay Mills Investment Group, Canada’s first black-owned venture capital firm dedicated to BIPOC entrepreneurs.
Anderson is replaced by CAA, Mosaic, Oscars Abrams Zimel & Associates and Jackoway Austen.
