JOHN WICK Spinoff BALLERINA Taps UNDERWORLD Helmer Len Wiseman To Direct

It looks like Lionsgate is indeed moving forward with expanding their John Wick universe, as they've just enlisted Len Wiseman (Underworld, Total Recall) to direct the female-led spinoff, Ballerina...

Deadline is reporting that Lionsgate has tapped Len Wiseman to direct the upcoming John Wick-universe spinoff Ballerina, which is being fast tracked with a script from Shay Hatten (John Wick: Chapter 3 - ParabellumArmy of the Dead). 

The film will center around a young female assassin who seeks revenge against the people who killed her family, and will presumably expand on The Director's (Anjelica Huston) assassin training facility that was introduced in John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum.

Basil Iwanyk and Erica Lee will serve as producers, with Keanu Reeves and Chad Stahelski also onboard as executive producers. It's currently unclear whether Reeves will cameo in the film as John Wick, but considering the end of Parabellum, it's probably a long shot at best - especially with Chapter 4 also just around the corner. 

While Wiseman is undoubtedly best known for helming the Kate Beckinsale-led Underworld and Underworld: Evolution, his directing credits also include Live Free or Die HardTotal Recall and pilots for Hawaii Five-0Sleepy HollowLucifer, APB and Swamp Thing as well as the second episode of FOX/Marvel's The Gifted.  

In this third installment of the adrenaline-fueled action franchise, super-assassin John Wick (Keanu Reeves) returns with a $14 million price tag on his head and an army of bounty-hunting killers on his trail. After killing a member of the shadowy international assassin’s guild, the High Table, John Wick is excommunicado, but the world’s most ruthless hit men and women await his every turn.
