Keanu Reeves To Appear As John Wick In Ballerina Spin-off Film
John Wick himself will show up in Ana de Armas film, along with Ian McShane's Winston.
If you were thinking he'd be back, you're right: Keanu Reeves will reprise his role as John Wick not just in John Wick: Chapter 4, but also in the upcoming spin-off, Ballerina, Collider reports.
Details on Reeves' role in the film and the film's plot are both very light. The film will star Ana de Armas (Blonde, Blade Runner 2049) as the titular character, a female assassin with similar origins to those of John Wick, and who is also out for revenge. We saw a character like this briefly in John Wick Chapter 3: Parabellum, but we don't know for sure yet if it will be the same character. We know that Reeves will appear as Wick, but whether his appearance will be a cameo or something bigger is not yet known.
Ian McShane will also reprise his role as Winston, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Winston is the manager of the Continental, the assassins-only hotel that helped John Wick take up residence in fan imaginations.
Ballerina is filming in Prague, where Reeves was also spotted. Len Wiseman (Underworld, Total Recall) is directing the film, with a screenplay from Shay Hatten (John Wick Chapter 3, Army of the Dead). Alongside Ballerina is the upcoming spin-off television series The Continental, which will focus on the hotel of the same name with a younger Winston leading.
John Wick Chapter 4 will hit theaters on March 24, 2023, starring Reeves and martial arts actor Donnie Yen. No release date has been announced for Ballerina.
