With the John Wick franchise to continue on with a fourth main movie and a spin-off offering, now comes word on who’ll be handling said spin-off.
Via Deadline, Len Wiseman has landed the gig of directing John Wick spin-off, Ballerina. Wiseman is likely best known to genre fans for helming two Underworld movies, Die Hard 4.0 and the Total Recall remake.
The early word on the female-driven Ballerina reads:
Ballerina focuses on a young female assassin who seeks revenge against the people who killed her family.
John Wick: Chapter 3 saw it revealed that Anjelica Huston’s Director trains ballerinas in the same facility where Keanu Reeves’ Wick himself was trained up to become an assassin.
Lionsgate has yet to set an official release date for Ballerina at this stage, although John Wick: Chapter 4 has been booked in for a May 2021 release.
