Donnie Yen Is Hoping to Lead a John Wick Spinoff
Donnie Yen recently joined one of the biggest action franchises of all time, starring as the blind assassin Caine in this year’s John Wick: Chapter 4. And many agreed that he stole the show. Now, with plans for the John Wick series to expand into spinoffs, Yen is hoping to lead his own Caine-centered project. Something that action fans would no doubt love to see. “I’d love to do a John Wick spinoff centered around Caine,” Yen said recently. Asked whether there had been any discussions behind-the-scenes regarding such a project, Yen coyly responded, “There’s always ‘talks’ in Hollywood.”
Caine is a character that Yen had a lot of influence on, with the actor suggesting that he should be blind and thus an homage to the idea of ‘the blind swordsman’ as seen in such motion pictures as Zatōichi. Not just that, Yen demanded making modifications to the character, who was at first provided to him as something far too stereotyped. “The name was Shang or Chang. Why does he always have to be called Shang or Chang? Why can’t he have a normal name? Why do you have to be so generic?” he exposed. “Then the wardrobe again—oh, mandarin collars. Why is everything so generic? This is a John Wick movie. Everybody’s supposed to be cool and fashionable. Why can’t he look cool and fashionable?”
Starring Keanu Reeves, Donnie Yen, Bill Skarsgård, Laurence Fishburne, Hiroyuki Sanada, Shamier Anderson, Lance Reddick, Rina Sawayama, Scott Adkins, Clancy Brown, and Ian McShane, John Wick: Chapter 4 is arranged to be launched on digital May 23, 2023, and on Blu-Ray, 4K UHD, and DVD on June 13, 2023.
