Lance Reddick is getting a posthumous sendoff in “John Wick: Chapter 4”.
The actor — who died at age 60 last week, prior to the film’s premiere — is featured in the new sequel, reprising his franchise role as Charon, concierge of The Continental.
With the film set to premiere this weekend, Deadline shared a brief look at the credits via Twitter, taken from a recent screening, which pays tribute to Reddick.

Following news of Reddick’s death, “John Wick: Chapter 4” star Keanu Reeves and director Chad Stahelski issued a joint statement announcing they’d be dedicating the film to the late actor, who died from what a rep described as “natural causes.”
“We are deeply saddened and heartbroken at the loss of our beloved friend and colleague Lance Reddick. He was the consummate professional and a joy to work with,” they said. “Our love and prayers are with his wife Stephanie, his children, family and friends. We dedicate the film to his loving memory. We will miss him dearly,” reads the statement.
“John Wick: Chapter 4” arrives in theatres on Friday, March 24.
