Keanu Reeves Salary for John Wick 4
According to Hollywood sources, Keanu Reeves has received an upfront payment of $8-10 million for his portrayal of professional hitman John Wick in ‘John Wick: Chapter 4’. Although the amount may seem small for a star like Keanu Reeves, who made $40 million for one film (“Matrix’s sequels), it is only a teaser as he is not just an actor but also a producer or profit-sharing stakeholder in the ‘John Wick’ franchise. Based on the projected box office and non-theatrical earnings, Reeves is expected to earn substantial profits from it.
The film’s box office projections are estimated to be $450 million globally. And there is also a good expectation for non-theatrical releases, which will reportedly earn Keanu Reeves a whopping $30-40 million from the fourth installment— it’s an impressive achievement. Reeves earned just $1-2 million from the first installment. However, he was so excited about the film at that time that he did not pay much attention to his salary.
In any case, Reeves is one of those actors in Hollywood who do not give much importance to their salaries. Despite this, the journey from earning $1 million to $30 million is commendable. ‘John Wick: Chapter 4’ has been released in the USA on 24 March 2023.
