Keanu Reeves proved that he’s more than earned his reputation as one of the nicest guys in Hollywood by treating the stunt team on his latest film to very generous gifts.
After filming wrapped on John Wick: Chapter 4, the actor invited the stunt crew that worked on the film to join him for dinner in Paris on Saturday night, presenting each of them with a personalized Rolex Submariner watch—which retail for just under $10,000 apiece—as an expression of his gratitude for all their hard work. Bruce Concepcion, Jeremy Marinas, Dave Camarillo, and Li Qiang were all gifted one of these extra special timepieces, each engraved with a unique message from Reeves.
Marinas shared a photo of the gift on his Instagram Stories, giving his followers a closer look at the Rolex, writing “best wrap gift ever.” He also showed the inscription inside that says, “The John Wick Five,” alongside a more personal note from Reeves that reads, “Jeremy Thank you Keanu JW4 2021.” Concepcion posted a photo of his Rolex on social media as well, writing, “Got that new new thank you bro KR.”
But this isn’t the end of “The John Wick Five.” The dream team will be back at it again in the very near future to film John Wick 5, which Lionsgate already confirmed last summer has been picked up and is set to be filmed right away. “We’re also busy preparing scripts for the next two installments of our John Wick action franchise, with John Wick 4 slated to hit theaters Memorial Day weekend 2022. We hope to shoot both John Wick 4 & 5 back to back when Keanu becomes available early next year,” the studio’s CEO John Feltheimer said on a 2020 earnings call, per Deadline. The John Wick franchise has been an enormous success for the movie studio, raking in $584.2 million with the first three installments, and the launch of a TV series on Starz, The Continental, slated to premiere shortly after the fourth film hits theaters next summer.
