John Wick’ Spinoff Featuring Donnie Yen’s Caine Is In The Works

The Blind Assassin Will Return In His Own Spinoff

Donnie Yen will reprise his role in the John Wick franchise as Caine, the blind assassin who will do just about anything for his family. Fans of the John Wick films can look forward to the film and all the high-quality action scenes that come with any John Wick-related project. 

Donnie Yen is Back!

The action-packed world of John Wick will be expanding once again with the addition of Donnie Yen’s character, Caine, getting his own spinoff project. The blind assassin was introduced in the latest John Wick film, John Wick: Chapter 4

Of course there are no details on the project yet. Whether it will be a series like The Continental series that premiered on Peacock or another film is unknown. The only thing that is certain is that the project will “continue Yen’s story arc following the events of ‘John Wick: Chapter 4,’ as Caine has been freed from his obligations to the High Table,” according to Lionsgate.

The screenplay for the project will be written by Robert Askins, who previously worked on The Umbrella Academy, AMC’s The Son, and received a 2015 Tony nomination for his play Hand of God. Lionsgate will begin production of the untitled movie in Hong Kong next year.

Why Caine Makes a Perfect Lead For a Spinoff 

Donnie Yen’s character, Caine, is a perfect lead for a spinoff series because Yen knows how important the action scenes are to the story, and he can deliver some of the best fight sequences in the business. 

The spinoff is developed through John Wick director Chad Stahelski’s development deal with Lionsgate to oversee the action franchise. Stahelski will produce through his 87Eleven Entertainment along with Thunder Road’s Basil Iwanyk and Erica Lee.

Yen even stated, “Working on ‘John Wick: Chapter 4’ was an extraordinary experience” and “The reason these films resonate so deeply is because, like myself, Chad, Basil, and Erica push themselves to create action, fights, and stunts that are not only thrilling, inventive and artistic but also expressive of character, story, and emotion. Caine is an incredible character with a haunted past, and I am excited to return to the role.” 

There is no word on a release date or even when production might start. However, fans can catch Ballerina, starring Ana de Armas, in the latest chapter in the John Wick universe. Ballerina will be released on June 6, 2025.
