John Wick has now become one of those franchises where the viewers may not get tired of it anytime soon. Given the fact that it has already spawned three films, one would think that the genre and the concept may have caught fatigue with the viewers by now. But as obvious as it is, that is certainly not the case.
In fact, we already know that a fourth John Wick movie is currently in the works. But guess what? If you are willing for more than your wish has certainly come true. According to a report in The Hollywood Reporter, a spin-off film of the franchise is in the works and will be titled, Ballerina.
As the name of the spin-off suggests, the film will be centering around a female assassin but the rest of the plot details are currently kept under wraps. Len Wiseman, best known for directing the film, Underworld has been roped in to direct this spin-off. As The Hollywood Reporter said, The script comes from Shay Hatten, who sold the pitch to Lionsgate in 2017 at the age of 23. He penned the story on nights and weekends while working as an assistant at Robert Downey Jr.'s Team Downey, and since then has gone on to earn writing credits on Zack Snyder's upcoming Netflix zombie movie Army of the Dead and last year's John Wick: Chapter 3 — Parabellum, the latest entry in the Keanu Reeves franchise that also happened to introduce a ballet academy to the universe.
Basil Iwanyk, Erica Lee and John Wick filmmaker Chad Stahelski will produce Ballerina. Reeves will executive produce, with James Myers overseeing for Lionsgate.
