I figured Anjelica Huston would be in this, given Ana de Armas' character, but it's nice to have it confirmed.

Prepare to see another familiar face in “Ballerina,” the spinoff set in Lionsgate’s “John Wick” universe. Lance Reddick is reprising his role as Charon, a concierge at the pivotal Continental Hotel, in the upcoming film.

Since my wife and I are huge Fringe fans, whenever we see Lance Reddick in anything, we both say "it's MOTHERFUCKIN' BROYLES". Excited to see him back in this!

EXCLUSIVE: The 2x Primetime Emmy nominated and Golden Globe winning Gabriel Byrne has closed a deal, we hear, to star opposite Ana de Armas in the John Wick spinoff Ballerina.

He joins the ever-expanding cast which includes Ian McShane, Keanu Reeves, Anjelica Huston, Lance Reddick, Catalina Sandino Moreno, and Norman Reedus.

Producer Basil Iwanyk said: “For decades, Gabriel’s mysterious and enigmatic presence has enriched dozens of films. You can never quite be sure what he’s thinking, and that’s perfect for this world.”

Why wasnít Huston in JW4? I thought she didnít want to come back and thatís why we had the other Russian lady.

Len Wiseman? Hopes dashed IMMEDIATELY. Was Paul Anderson otherwise booked?

Paul W.S. Anderson. I would hate for him to be confused with the great Paul Thomas.

Given this takes s place between JW3 and JW4, perhaps Houston's character dies in this one? I also assume we'll see Pyotr (and his demise at the hands of Scott Adkins' Killa) in this one as well.

Ballerina is departing 2024, with the John Wick spinoff now opening June 6, 2025.

It departs a June 7, 2024 date, with Lionsgate insiders saying it will be getting additional action sequences under the guiding hand of Chad Stahelski, the mastermind behind the John Wick franchise. He will be working closely with Ballerina director Len Wiseman on the sequences. The studio feels that because its upcoming The Crow film is ready for theaters, it does not need to rush Ballerina into cinemas if they can make it better.

Bummer that it’s moving to next year. Next year is also going to be crowded. But, if Stahelski thinks the movie needs work, then it’s probably for the best.

Wiseman is a hack. Itís not surprising the studio asked Stahelski to come in and hold his hand for some extra action sequences.

I guess they figured that one ballerina movie (Abigail) is more than enough for 2024.

He's dating my wife's friend's daughter (she was a featured contestant on FBoy Island). He sounds like an a-hole. Used to be married to Kate Beckinsale (and directed her in a few forgettable movies). I was surprised that Lionsgate gave such a high-profile property to him.

I agree on most of Wiseman's filmography but I dare say the first Underworld is the crown jewel in both Beckinsale's and her ex's careers. By ex, I mean Wiseman, not Michael Sheen who is the father of her daughter. Mr. Sheen has a much better career IMO.

I am actually a big fan of Kate's but I do think Underworld is her best movie.

Chad Stahelski >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Len Wiseman all day every day.
