According to Deadline, the character herself appears in Parabellum, though its unknown which of the ballerinas seen performing or practicing in the movie is meant to be the star assassin in the spin-off.

Details include that Ballerina will follow a young female assassin who seeks revenge against the people who killed her family.

Keanu Reeves will be involved as an executive producer, as well as John Wick franchise director Chad Stahelski as a producer, with Basil Iwanyk and Erica Lee joining Stahelski as producers on Ballerina.

Are you excited about the John Wick spinoff film?

Hatten has since worked on the scripts for Zack Snyder's upcoming Netflix film Army of the Dead, as well as John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum. After a massive third entry in the series, a fourth film due in 2021, plus comics and an in-the-works TV series, it makes sense that Hollywood would push ahead on cinematic spin-off Ballerina, too.

A character named Ballerina played by actress Unity Phelan is listed in the casting credits on IMDB.

Len Wiseman is no stranger to high-octane action films with a female lead. 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. Over the last five years, the box office numbers for each film have skyrocketed beyond expectations.

The John Wick franchise just got a little bigger today.

John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum pulled in more than US$323 million worldwide, making it the highest grossing Lionsgate title on more than half a decade.

As yet, there's no planned release date for Ballerina.
