It looks like Wesley Snipes will not be turning up in John Wick: Chapter 4 after it was revealed that talks between the actor and the studio broke down.
The Illuminerdi had reported that the Blade actor was in talks to star in the upcoming John Wick film.
However, The Hollywood Reporter’s Borys Kit then took to Twitter to reveal that Snipes has been in negotiations to appear in the movie a while ago.
Yet, talks between him and Lionsgate broke down, which is just such a shame.
It had been reported that Snipes was up to play a rather interesting role in the movie.
He was said to be in talks to play a swordsman in the movie who would be one of John Wick’s allies.
I would have loved to have seen Snipes and Keanu Reeves fight alongside one another in the film.

Here’s what Broys Kit wrote on Twitter:
Despite some reports, action star @wesleysnipes is NOT going to be in #JohnWick 4. There were some discussions a little while ago but it didn’t work out.
As for John Wick: Chapter 4 confirmed cast, it’s looking very interesting indeed.
Bill Skarsgård (It Chapter 2), Shamier Anderson (Stowaway), and Japanese-British pop star Rina Sawayama have all joined the project.
Donnie Yen (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story) was also recently attached to star in the picture.
