"John Wick 5" is currently in the early stages of development, following the release of the fourth installment in the franchise starring Keanu Reeves.

 Lionsgate chairman Joe Drake revealed the existence of a fifth movie in the works, along with other projects at the production studio.

The franchise is expanding beyond the AAA video game space, with plans for spin-offs and television series to grow the "John Wick" universe.

The first spinoff, titled "Ballerina" and featuring Ana de Armas, is set to be released next year.

Three other spinoffs, including "John Wick 5," are also in development.

A television series called "The Continental" will be airing soon, further expanding the franchise.

The goal is to build a steady cadence of the "John Wick" franchise, catering to the clear appetite of the audience.

Director Chad Stahelski expressed openness to making another film in the franchise, stating that he "wouldn't mind" doing it.

 Stahelski and the team aimed to give their all in "John Wick 4" and feel that they completed the cycle and delivered a satisfying and fun film.

The success of the "John Wick" series, both critically and commercially, is humbling for Stahelski, who appreciates the audience's desire for more stories in the franchise.
