Female-Centric John Wick Spinoff Lands Director Len Wiseman

Female-Centric John Wick Spinoff Lands Director Len Wiseman

Details regarding the plot are yet to be announced but the spinoff will be titled Ballerina.

Ballerina will be a story about a young female assassin, who like John Wick, seeks revenge - except, she will be seeking revenge against the people who murdered her family.

The female character appeared briefly in the last John Wick film - John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum - and was played by Unity Phelan, but it's not yet clear who will play the lead in Ballerina.

The film takes center stage even as Lionsgate ramps up John Wick 4.

John Wick spin-off Ballerina has found its director in Len Wiseman.

Afghan raid kills top Al-Qaeda commander
Last month, the U.S. announced it killed Osama bin Laden's son, who was believed to be the next-in-line to lead Al-Qaeda. Omar is believed to have strengthened the group's global activities in India , Pakistan , Bangladesh and Myanmar.

"Ballerina", a woman-centric John Wick spinoff, is in the works at Lionsgate, with Len Wiseman on board to to develop and direct.

Reeves' character returned with a $14 million price tag on his head and an army of bounty-hunting killers on his trail after he murdered a member of the shadowy global assassin's guild, the High Table, John Wick is ex-communicado, but the world's most ruthless hit men and women await his every turn.

Basil Iwanyk, Erica Lee and Chad Stahelski are producing "Ballerina", with Reeves executive producing.

"John Wick 3" hit the ground running with its theatrical release pulling in a staggering $323 million worldwide. I have no idea how much ballet experience Wiseman has, but he probably got the gig based on the fact that he was one of the guys behind the female-driven action franchise Underworld, which starred Kate Beckinsale as a gun-toting vampire. The director's output varies in quality, but some of his work on the Underworld series is strong and Live Free or Die Hard definitely has its moments. He has most recently been engaged in directing series which range from Hawaii 5-0 to Lucifer, Sleepy Hollow, The Gifted and Swamp Thing.
