Interviewer: John Wick 4, we got new adventures, new action. What can the fans expect with this new journey?

Ian: More of the same. Bigger, bigger, better.

Interviewer: Except more.

Ian: More, more, more.

Interviewer: With this dynamic duo, you guys have made it all the way to the 4th installment. What makes this chemistry work, and why are people just so in love with this two dynamic duo you guys got going on?

Ian: Well, it’s a very unusual job. You know you run a hotel for assassins. I mean, not many people can say that you know, and John’s our favorite guest, isn’t he, but he hasn’t been there for a while. So he comes back Episode 1. You sure you want to dip your toes back in this water, John? Yes, he does, and then mayhem ensues for two hours. And now, finally, in the 4th episode, my world is threatened big time.

Interviewer: Mm. He’s coming after you. He’s coming at you.

Ian: And that’s why …

Lance: Yeah.

Ian: Yeah, they’re coming after all of us, you know, so he’s like saying, well, now we’re involved.

Interviewer: Yeah.

Ian: And when Winston and Chiron are trying to tread a fine line between loving John, taking care of him, but not upsetting the high table and whatever in our world and suddenly he’s been flipped, so it’s all …

Lance: So we feel threatened lives.

Ian: The world is got shaken, yeah.
