Lionsgate announced the “John Wick” spinoff movie “Ballerina,” starring Ana de Armas, will debut in theaters June 7, 2024. Ballerina takes place between the events of John Wick: Chapter 3 — Parabellum (2019) and John Wick: Chapter 4, released this past March.
Ballerina will expand on a character enigmatically named Ballerina, introduced in 2019’s “John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum.” According to a statement, de Armas will star as Rooney, “an assassin trained in the traditions of the Ruska Roma” who seeks revenge on her family’s killers. Ian McShane and Keanu Reeves will reprise their roles as Winston Scott and John Wick, respectively. In addition, late actor Lance Reddick appears as his John Wick character, Charon. Anjelica Huston, Gabriel Byrne, Norman Reedus and Catalina Sandino Moreno also star.
Ballerina is written by Shay Hatten and directed by Len Wiseman (‘Underworld’, ‘Live Free or Die Hard’), with John Wick director Chad Stahelski serving as producer.
