The director also gave an update on how much of the film has been completed, saying: “We’re on the final stretch for frame lock and then we have our VFX music. But this is the furthest I’ve ever been, so much in the mail.

“We love the music we have so far. We still have Tyler Bates doing the compositing on some of the bigger sequences. The VFX will come in the rest of the year. But we’re dangerously close.

“In our edit, as far as our frame lock, we’re within a few minutes of locking. Our sequences are done. The film is essentially finished. There’s probably another few weeks of adjustments overall, then we’ll lock the frame, and we’ll act about music, sound and the effects.”

There is currently no release date for Constantine sequel.

The John Wick movies are available to buy or rent on Amazon Prime Video, plus DVD, Blu-ray and 4K Ultra HD.
