Keanu Reeves Kept Getting The Real Title of 'John Wick' Wrong, So They Just Changed The Movie Title

John Wick wasn’t originally called John Wick at all, but something else entirely.

In a new interview with Comicbook.com, the franchise’s co-creator and screenwriter Derek Kolstad shared that star Keanu Reeves kept calling it that and the studio just decided to keep it that – instead of what it was supposed to be called, which was Scorn.

“The only reason it’s called John Wick is that Keanu kept referring to it as John Wick,” he explained.

“Marketing was like, ‘Dude, that’s four to five million dollars in free advertising so far, so it’s John Wick instead of Scorn’. I can’t imagine it being Scorn now,” he added.

The release of John Wick 4 was delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic earlier this year by Lionsgate.

This is now the projected date that the film will hit theaters.
