Keanu Reeves on What’s to Are available John Wick’s Ballerina Spinoff
Lionsgate and Keanu Reeves’ John Wick sequence is taking its first huge leap for franchisekind with two spinoffs. One can be a TV present targeted on the Continental that’s served as a base of operations for John and his surrogate dad Winston (as performed by Ian McShane), whereas the opposite is a movie centered on ballerina assassins. Fittingly titled Ballerina, this movie is supposed to comply with up on the glimpses into the bigger murderer world that John Wick: Chapter 3 briefly hinted at for a handful of scenes, with present It woman Ana de Armas within the lead function.
Throughout Brazil’s Comedian-Con Expertise this weekend, Reeves confirmed up through the John Wick panel to each hype up the fourth movie and speak just a little bit about Ballerina, which is presently in manufacturing. Although he’s tapped to look in it (together with a returning McShane and Lance Reddick as Charon), Reeves made it fairly clear he’s solely a supporting character for the movie. “I’m in it for a couple of sequences,” he defined. “The script’s nice, and the story’s cool. Trying ahead to it.”
Particulars on what Ballerina precisely is are understandably scarce for the time being, however the actor did reveal that like John Wick, the spinoff can be a murderous revenge story. About de Armas’ character, he mentioned that she “has some very troublesome circumstances and who’s on the lookout for revenge. Somebody killed her father. Who may that be?” Discovering that individual can be her major aim, however it’s somebody who can solely be recognized by, drumroll please…a tattoo. “As we all know in John Wick, when you have a tattoo, one thing’s happening.”
For a franchise that began off with one man getting pissed off that somebody shot his canine, the catalyst for Ballerina’s revenge story can’t assist however sound disappointingly generic compared. Nonetheless, issues like this at all times come right down to execution—if nothing else, Ballerina will hopefully be fairly to take a look at when it hits theaters.
