Anjelica Huston Returning to the World of ‘John Wick’ in ‘Ballerina’

Anjelica Huston will join Ana de Armas in “Ballerina,” a spinoff set in the “John Wick” universe, Variety reports. Huston is reprising her role as the Director, the head of the Ruska Roma, which she originated in 2019’s “John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum.”


“The idea of ‘Ballerina’ was formed around the scenes with Anjelica in ‘John Wick 3,” producer Erica Lee said. “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.”



“Ballerina” stars de Armas as a young female assassin who seeks revenge against those who killed her family. Len Wiseman is directing the film, which was written by Shay Hatten. It’s currently in production.


Along with Huston, another franchise favorite, Ian McShane, will return in “Ballerina” as Winston, the manager of the Continental Hotel, while John Wick himself, Keanu Reeves, is expected (though not officially confirmed) to make an appearance in the spinoff story.
