Keanu Reeves Bought the John Wick 4 Stunt Team An Awesome Wrap Gift

Keanu Reeves bought his John Wick 4 stunt team an incredible and unique wrap gift. John Wick 4 started filming in June 2021, ahead of its expected release on May 27, 2022. Laurence Fishburne, Ian Mcshane, and Lance Reddick return for their roles in the action-packed franchise, while It star Bill Skarsgaard has also joined the cast in a mystery role.

The John Wick Franchise was founded on its action pieces and stunt work, and John Wick 4 promises to be filled with much more. With shooting known to have taken place in Japan, hopefully, we can also expect some more martial art set-pieces in John Wick 4. Little is known about the plot of John Wick 4, but it is sure to pick off where the third, John Wick Chapter 3 – Parabellum, left off as Wick was targeted by his fellow assassins from The High Table, who now wrongly believe him to be dead.  Whatever happens, the crew worked hard to make the newest installment in the franchise, and Reeves showed his appreciation in a flashy way.

Widely regarded as one of the nicest people in Hollywood, Reeves has once again impressed by rewarding his co-workers with wildly expensive, personalized Rolex watches, according to three images shared by watchmania. Reeves is pictured at a dinner with his stunt team where he gifted each of them an engraved Rolex Submariner watch, worth around $10,000. Personally inscribed with the name of each of the "John Wick Five," Reeves expresses his gratitude to the stunt workers for the work they put in over the shoot.

Known for his down-to-earth and generous nature, Reeves has been credited in the past for his gentility. The actor is also well-known for his respect towards the stunt people that he works with. Director of the John Wick franchise, Chad Stahelski, previously worked as Reeves' stuntperson on the original The Matrix. Reeves also refers to what many other actors would call their stunt work as simply "physical acting" out of respect for the profession.

Reeves's career is going through a particular renaissance as he returns to his iconic role as Neo in The Matrix Resurrectionsreleased on December 22. Stahelski has also been reported to have had some involvement in producing the sequel, but it does not look like he will be actively performing any stunts. The excitement surrounding both John Wick 4 and The Matrix 4 have the expectations of Reeves at an all-time high but, if the reception is good, then he could expect to be receiving some rewards of his own in the coming year.
