Lionsgate is producing a female-led John Wick spin-off and wants Len Wiseman to direct.
This wouldn’t be his first female-led project, because he launched his carrier in filmmaking with the Underworld-series, which were mostly led by actress Kate Beckinsale as the front figure. As a director, he also has worked on the Bruce Willis-led film Live Free or Die Hard.
This plot is focusing on the character Ballerina, who was last seen in the latest film John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum (2019), which gave the audience a short glimpse of the young female assassin, then played by actress Unity Phelan. Nothing has been announced if she would take on the role again in this film, but the story will still follow her character out seeking revenge against those who murdered her family.
The script is penned by screenwriter Shay Hatten, whose recent work includes John Wick 3, which grossed more than $323 million, and Netflix’s upcoming horror Army of the Dead. This film will be produced by Basil Iwanyk, Erica Lee and Chad Stahelski, along with the executive producers John Wick star Keanu Reeves and Kaley Smalley from Wiseman’s Sketch Films.
