John Wick Spinoff ‘Ballerina’ in the Works With Len Wiseman Directing

John Wick doing what he does best in 'John Wick Hex.'

Details regarding the plot are yet to be announced but the spinoff will be titled Ballerina. By the end of Parabellum, Wick is determined to go after the High Table itself, potentially toppling the entire criminal world in John Wick 4, expected in theaters in 2021.

The actioner is now said to be on "a fast track" to production, with a script from Shay Hatten, who penned the most recent Wick flick, John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum. This film has been in the works since about 2017 and was quite obviously set up through Anjelica Huston's character in the third movie, whom we see viciously training a troupe of deadly dancers when John Wick goes to visit her.

So it comes as little surprise, and I certainly ain't complaining, that "Deadline" have reported today that a spinoff film called The Ballerina which "focuses on a young female assassin who seeks revenge against the people who killed her family", is coming from Lionsgate.

Basil Iwanyk, Erica Lee and Chad Stahelski are producing "Ballerina", with Reeves executive producing.

This news is actually significant, as John Wick 4 was greenlit a week into John Wick 3's kick-ass time in cinemas.

"John Wick 3" hit the ground running with its theatrical release pulling in a staggering $323 million worldwide.

Wiseman launched his star as a filmmaker with another female-driven action franchise, the vampire/werewolf Underworld series.

Wiseman, on the other hand, is perhaps best known for his decade-spanning career in the Underworld franchise, though has since notched directing credits on TV shows in the vein of Hawaii 5-0, Lucifer, Sleepy Hollow, The Gifted and the ill-fated Swamp Thing series.
