Keanu Reeves Reportedly Joining John Wick Spin-Off Film ‘Ballerina’
With Ana De Armas leading the John Wick spin-off film Ballerina. The pieces are coming together for the Wick-Verse to expand. Ian McShane is already confirmed to reprise his role in the film and now reports from Collider state that Keanu Reeves is currently in Prague to reprise his role as the titular character for the spin-off film as well.
The film will focus on the female assassin who will hold nothing back as she attempts to find the people responsible for the murder of her family and bring them to justice. The character Armas would play will be based on a small appearance that was made in the latest Wick film, John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum.
The report states he is on location to film scenes for the spin-off but it is still unclear how big of a role he will have in the film. It could merely be a camera, although a cameo from John Wick himself would be no small thing as it will at the very least be a huge fan service but it will be interesting to see under what circumstances we see Wich involved in the spin-off.
Len Wiseman will be helming the spinoff film from a script written by Shay Hatten. Hatten scripted John Wick: Chapter 3 and Zack Snyder‘s Army of the Dead. Ballerina joins an ever-expanding universe for the John Wick franchise as it has also been previously announced that there will be a prequel series titled The Continental which stars Colin Woodell, and Mel Gibson. The spinoff series focuses on Winston Scott and how he became the manager of the hotel that doubles as a safe haven for assassins. Lastly, John Wick 4 is already in production and set to land in theaters in May 2022.
