Ana DeArmas’ Ballerina will fight Keanu Reeves’ John Wick in spin-off movie

January 8th, 2023 by Marc Comments

If, like us all here at FTN HQ, you’re a John Wick fan, then we have some pretty exciting news for you all.

As we know, Blade Runner 2049 and James Bond: No Time to Die star Ana DeArmas is currently filming the first official (we say official because in our head-canon Nobody and Atomic Blonde are John Wick universe movies) John Wick spin-off Ballerina in Prague and it seems that John Wick himself, Keanu Reeves, is set to appear.

Based on the Ballerina first seen in John Wick Chapter 3, the movie sees Armas playing the titular dancer, Rooney, who is also a trained killer, the movie will see Reeves not just back but locking guns with Rooney.

John Wick and Nobody crossover could happen

“We’ve been in Prague filming for four months,” DeArmas said on  The Tonight Show.

“We still have one more month to go. And I’m in pain. You know, my body, my back, everything hurts. I’m complaining, I’m sore, I’m bruised. Bond [movie No Time to Die] was 15 minutes. This is a whole movie, another level.

“But the other day, Keanu and I were rehearsing our very difficult stunt scene, and this man is just rolling and throwing me and doing crazy stunts. And I’m like — I can’t complain anymore. Because he is doing it! He truly is the best.”

Major John Wick game planned

The movie will also see John Wick regulars Lance Reddick and Ian McShane appear along with John Wick Chapter 3’s Angelica Huston along with newcomers Norman Reedus and Gabriel Byrne, so it sounds like this movie is going to be an absolute rollercoaster.

The movie will be directed by Die Hard with a Vengence’s Len Wiseman and, while filming at the minute, has no release date as of yet.

John Wick (Keanu Reeves) uncovers a path to defeating The High Table. But before he can earn his freedom, Wick must face off against a new enemy with powerful alliances across the globe and forces that turn old friends into foes.

The movie stars Keanu Reeves, Donnie Yen, Bill Skarsgård, Laurence Fishburne, Hiroyuki Sanada, Shamier Anderson, Lance Reddick, Rina Sawayama, Scott Adkins, and Ian McShane.

John Wick Chapter 4 opens on March 24th, 2023

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
