Its been a while since we have heard any news about Ballerina, the female driven spin off from the John Wick franchise, but Chad Stahelski who is the director of the popular Keanu Reeves franchise has been talking about what is happening to the much planned film.
With Underworld’s Len Wiseman confirmed as the director, Stahelski admitted that the film will be a little bit different to John Wick.
“Having him [Wiseman] on board and approaching some of the action design from a slightly different perspective, meaning the set pieces, the character involvement, how and what he wants to do during the action sequences, makes it kind of fresh.
So, we’re not just copying ourselves over and over again with gun-fu or something like that. And because the character is different, we’re going to get a different take on things.
So, right now, I know that him and Shay [Hatten] are developing Ballerina. I’m not exactly sure what stage it’s at, but it’s something I know that both Lionsgate, Thunder Road and myself would like to see happen sooner rather than later. And from what I’ve heard recently, they’ve got a good angle on it and they’re actively developing.”
Ballerina follows a young assassin who vows revenge against those that killed her family.
