Anjelica Huston To Reprise Role In John Wick Spinoff Ballerina

Keanu Reeves and Ian McShane aren't the only familiar faces joining the John Wick spin-off Ballerina.

The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that Anjelica Huston, 71, will reprise her John Wick Chapter 3 role as The Director - a crime lord and maternal figure to Keanu's hitman character.

via People:

The Lionsgate feature is set in the same world as the beloved action franchise but centers on an up-and-coming, revenge-seeking assassin played by Ana de Armas (No Time To Die, Knives Out).

De Armas' Wick role is based on a young girl briefly featured in Chapter 3. In the upcoming film she will receive training to become both a dancer and assassin from Huston's iconic character.

"The idea of Ballerina was formed around the scenes with Anjelica in [Chapter 3]," Ballerina producer Erica Lee told THR. "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," Lee added.

The iconic actress has stuck primarily to voice acting after the release of Chapter 3, voicing characters on programs like Netflix's BoJack Horseman and narrating 2020's The French Dispatch.

John Wick: Chapter 4, which is set to hit theaters on March 24, 2023.

I love all the John Wick films, and I'm excited to see the new film. Anytime I get to dive into the world that they've created for the league of assassins, especially if we get to spend time in The Continental, I'm here for all of it.
