A lady assassin will lead the next 'John Wick' movie

John Wick Hex

The script will come from Shay Hatten, who wrote John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum.

This marks the second spin-off from the Keanu Reeves-led franchise - the first being the Starz television series The Continental - and it's on the fast track into production as Lionsgate looks to capitalize off of what a hot product John Wick has become. Ballerina takes as its jumping-off point a Ruska Roma (Russian Romani people) crime family introduced as a new faction in John Wick: Chapter 3.

Interestingly, they're not using Halle Berry and her character from John Wick 3. but a new young female assassin instead.

Deadline is reporting that Len Wiseman of Underworld fame is all set to helm Ballerina, a female-fronted spinoff set in the universe of John Wick.

For now, the studio is working on John Wick 4 which is scheduled to hit theaters on May 21, 2021. This means that the titular ballerina is likely to be almost as deadly as Wick himself, having undergone the same training. Details regarding the plot are yet to be announced but the spinoff will be titled Ballerina.

According to Deadline, the character herself appears in Parabellum, though its unknown which of the ballerinas seen performing or practicing in the movie is meant to be the star assassin in the spin-off. He's likewise directed Live Free or Die Hard and did fantastic work on Lucifer, Sleepy Hollow and the fan favorite, yet cancelled too soon Swamp Thing.

While Keanu Reeves may show up in the movie as a cameo, he is definitely involved as an executive producer on the film alongside producers Basil Iwanyk, Erica Lee, and Chad Stahelski.

As yet, there's no planned release date for Ballerina.
