Keanu Reeves has entered negotiations to reprise his role as John Wick in Ballerina — a new spin-off to Reeves’ Lionsgate action franchise — Deadline can confirm.
While the studio was unable to be reached for comment, it’s understood that Reeves will appear alongside Ana de Armas and Ian McShane. The latter will reprise his role as The Continental Hotel manager Winston, which he’s played since the original John Wick film, as was announced earlier today.
Production on Ballerina is now underway, with Len Wiseman directing from a script by Shay Hatten. Basil Iwanyk, Erica Lee and Chad Stahelski are producing, with Brady Fujikawa and Chelsea Kujawa overseeing the project for Lionsgate.
Reeves will next appear as the hitman John Wick in John Wick: Chapter 4, which is slated for release in theaters on March 23, 2023. He is repped by WME, Sugar23 and Ziffren Brittenham.
