Back at the start of 2021, John Wick star Ian McShane revealed that he believes that the fourth film in the series will begin shooting later this year.

“Keanu [Reeves] and I exchanged New Year’s greetings and said, ‘Hope to see you this year’,” he said in a recent interview. “I know the script is being written and they’re hoping to do it this year.”

Rina Sawayama, meanwhile, released her debut album ‘SAWAYAMA’ via Dirty Hit last year. In a new interview with NME on the red carpet at this month’s BRIT Awards in London, she revealed that she’s already working on her second album, inspired by “Garbage, grunge and pop”.
