This is an important warning: if you haven’t seen all the way through to the fourth movie of the John Wick series, you might want to be aware that this passage will let out a few secrets about it!
We’re really excited to see Ballerina, the new movie from the John Wick series. We’d like to know how Ana De Armas’ character, Rooney, fits into this universe. We know that Rooney will try to get revenge for her parents’ death, and she’ll meet some of the other characters in this series. Recently, Erica Lee who works on producing John Wick shared more information about which characters we can expect to meet and how they help out Rooney’s mission.
We knew that Ballerina comes before the fourth John Wick movie, but after seeing it you can be 100% sure since two major characters die. Keanu Reeves, Ian McShane, and Lance Reddick make appearances in this movie too, so people were assuming that Rooney would check into The Continental but our Editor-in-Chief Steve Weintraub found out the actors only did cameos.
Have you ever felt the urge to just scroll without a hint of destination in sight? It can be quite exciting, sometimes leading to unexpected discoveries.
” Ian, John Wick and Lance had to do some extra filming for the movie. They spent a week, a day and a few last minute additions respectively for their parts. Everyone wanted the movie to have continuity between characters in order to connect them more than just having Anjelica Huston as The Director. Also, it was difficult to figure out when Keanu’s part could be added since they were still editing his fourth movie, but eventually they figured out a timeline that made sense.”
The movie ‘John Wick: Chapter 4’ had a very long first cut with it being three hours and forty-five minutes! The director, Chad Stahelski, has explained why they decided to make changes.
John Wick’s Past Revealed
Ballerina is being directed by Len Wiseman and the script was written by Shay Hatten who also wrote for John Wick: Chapter 4. Other than Ana de Armas and Common Huston, this movie also includes stars like Norman Reedus from The Walking Dead and Gabriel Byrne from Hereditary, as well as Catalina Sandino Moreno from The Affair. This movie will also let us deep dive into John Wick’s past; something that wasn’t explored in the previous movies.
The John Wick movie franchise is getting a special miniseries called The Continental. It’s planned for September, and there will be three episodes each lasting about an hour and a half long. The show is going to expand on the underworld theme of the movies, taking place mainly in hotels where criminals can rest without being attacked or disturbed.
