Martial arts actor Donnie Yen has joined the cast of "John Wick 4" for Lionsgate.

Yen will share screen time with lead actor Keanu Reeves playing an old friend of John Wick (Reeves), who shares his same history and many of the same enemies.

The actor is one of the most successful actor-filmmakers from the East. He is known for his unique style of contemporary screen combat. Yen's popularity extends worldwide from roles in movies such as "xXx: Return of Xander Cage", "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story", "Mulan", and the "IP Man" franchise.

Chad Stahelski is directing from a script written by Shay Hatten and Michael Finch.

Stahelski will also produce the movie along with Basil Iwanyk, Erica Lee, with Reeves and Louise Rosner serving as executive producers.

"John Wick 4" is set to begin production this summer shooting on location in France, Germany, and Japan.

The movie will also feature Japanese-British pop superstar Rina Sawayama.
