As production continues on Ballerina, Lionsgate has announced that another John Wick alum has signed on to join the Ana de Armas-led action spin-off.
Following the confirmation of Keanu Reeves, Ian McShane, and Anjelica Huston’s involvement, it has now been revealed that Lance Reddick will also be reprising his role as Charon, the reliable concierge of the Continental Hotel.
“Charon is an indispensable part of the world of Wick,” producer Erica Lee said in a statement. “It’s great to know that Lance will continue to make his mark on this franchise.”
The project was first announced in 2019, following the theatrical debut of John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum, which gave us our first look at the Ballerina assassins who are trained by the Ruska Roma syndicate, led by Anjelica Huston’s character.
Ballerina focuses on a young female assassin who seeks revenge against the people who killed her family. It will be directed by Len Wiseman from a screenplay written by Shay Hatten (Army of the Dead). The movie will be overseen by James Myers for Lionsgate. The spin-off is produced by Basil Iwanyk, Erica Lee, Keanu Reeves, and Chad Stahelski.
Lionsgate is currently in post-production for John Wick: Chapter 4, which is slated to hit the theaters on March 24, 2023. The studio is also working on the prequel series The Continental, which will be debuting on Peacock as a limited series.
