Len Wiseman Will Direct The JOHN WICK Spin-Off

John Wick Hex Len Wiseman Set To Direct Female-Centric ‘John Wick’ Spinoff ‘Ballerina’

John Wick 4 is set to be released on May 21 2021, after the success of the most recent film in the series, which had an enormous United States box office opening of $56.8 million (£44.6m), knocking Avengers: Endgame off the top spot.

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 is unstoppable at this point, just as he is in the franchise itself, with Lionsgate announcing that Len Wisemen will direct Ballerina - a female-led spin-off of the hugely popular John Wick franchise.

The spinoff was penned by one of the writers of John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum, Shay Hatten. Details are still sparse, but in the latest film, New York City dancer Unity Phelan is in the credits as Ballerina.

So far there's no news on who might play this kick-ass young lady - Deadline notes that though the character did appear in Parabellum, nobody's been cast yet for the spin-off - or if Keanu Reeves will make a cameo, though given the huge popularity of the John Wick character, and Reeves' enthusiasm for the series, it seems a safe enough bet.

Alongside Reeves, Basil Iwanyk, Erica Lee, and Chad Stahelski will be producing the movie with James Myers overseeing the project for Lionsgate.

The second movie further developed the storyworld of a shadowy network of assassins, and made $171 million from a modest $40 million budget, while John Wick 3 did even better, making $323 million.

Wiseman is the director of the 2012 "Total Recall" remake and "Live Free or Die Hard" from 2007. He has most recently been engaged in directing series which range from Hawaii 5-0 to Lucifer, Sleepy Hollow, The Gifted and Swamp Thing.
