Anjelica Huston to star in John Wick spinoff Ballerina

The film stars Ana De Armas as a young female assassin who seeks revenge against those who killed her family

Actor Anjelica Huston will star in Ballerina, the spinoff set in the John Wick universe. The film also stars Ana De Armas.

Huston is reprising her role as the Director, the head of the Ruska Roma, which she originated in 2019's John Wick: Chapter 3- Parabellum, reports Variety. "The idea of Ballerina was formed around the scenes with Anjelica in John Wick 3," producer Erica Lee said. "Anjelica Huston is an icon and is nothing less than Hollywood royalty. The world of Wick is always made richer by her commanding screen presence."

Ballerina stars Armas as a young female assassin who seeks revenge against those who killed her family. Written by Shay Hatten, the film is directed by Len Wiseman. It's currently in production. Along with Huston, another franchise favourite, Ian McShane, will return in Ballerina as Winston, the manager of the Continental Hotel, while John Wick himself, Keanu Reeves, is expected to make an appearance in the spinoff story.

While it is produced by Basil Iwanyk, Erica Lee, and Chad Stahelski, Brady Fujikawa and Chelsea Kujawa are overseeing the project for Lionsgate. It may be noted that John Wick: Chapter 4, will open in theatres on March 24, 2023. The first three instalments in the action-heavy vengeance franchise have been commercially successful, grossing a combined $587 million worldwide.

Huston, who received Oscar nominations for The Grifters and Enemies, A Love Story, recently lent her voice to Wes Anderson's The French Dispatch and appeared in the 2020 war film Waiting for Anya.

She's best known for portraying Morticia Addams in The Addams Family and its sequel Addams Family Values, the Grand High Witch in the original adaptation of Roald Dahl's The Witches, Ever After, and This Is Spinal Tap.
