A new day dawns. New ideas, new rules, new organization.

The Marquis of Gramont (Bill Skarsgård)

While he received a favorable opinion from the management of the Louvre Museum, like Ron Howard before him, for The Da Vinci CodeChad Stahelski chose to shoot the only scene taking place in front of Eugène Delacroix’s painting Liberty Leading the People. A scene in which Bill Skarsgård and Ian McShane take part.

An influential figure

The Marquis of Gramont, the great villain of John Wick 4, played by Bill Skarsgård, chooses prestigious places to receive his guests. This is how he finds Winston, the former manager of the Continental New York, played by Ian McShane, in the prestigious Louvre Museum, in front of one of his most famous paintings. Chad Stahelski also wanted to highlight The Raft of the Medusa, Géricault’s masterpiece.

Canvas of master

Louvre officials were quick to ask Chad Stahelski what the nature of the scene he had in mind would be, as he told Collider, “They first asked me if the scene in the Louvre would be a dialogue scene. “You’re not going to shoot anything, are you?” I was like, ‘I don’t know. Can I?’ And I was like, ‘Just kidding. We just want to shoot in the Louvre. Let’s just say we shot a really cool scene in the Louvre. They got a little – you start shooting and blowing shit up next to a Caravaggio they get a little edgy. But no, they were wonderful. They let us come in and do a great scene there.

It would indeed have been a shame if Chad Stahelski had been excommunicated by the Louvre in the same way that John Wick was excommunicated by the Big Table in the movies.

A prestigious filming location

As is often the case when shooting in the Louvre, John Wick 4 also takes the time to highlight the Pyramid, without destroying it, damaging it or even placing a scene there. The latter, already severely hit by a car in the Lupin series, has been treated with respect here.


The filming of John Wick 4 took place in room 77, on the second floor of the Louvre museum, in front of paintings such as Liberty Leading the People and The Raft of the Medusa.

Louvre Museum

A medieval defensive fortress when it was first built in 1190, the Louvre then became the palace and residence of the kings of France until the departure of Louis XIV in 1678.

Almost all the sovereigns who have occupied the place have left their personal mark on it, through enlargement and embellishment work, until it became one with the Tuileries, now destroyed. After the French Revolution, the Louvre became a museum.

Opened in 1793, it was intended to be universal. It is still universal, thanks to its priceless collections and the immense 135,000 m2 of space in which they are housed. With more than 9 million visitors per year, it is the most visited museum in the world with such a vast choice that it would take at least 96 hours to admire everything, spending only 10 seconds in front of each work! The Mona Lisa, painted by Leonardo da Vinci, is of course its jewel with more than 20,000 people admiring it every day.

And in the courtyard, another wonder appeared in 1989 with the glass pyramid by Ieoh Ming Pei. Despite its rich past, the Louvre is always in step with the times, even if it means being a few years ahead of its time.
