Ana de Armas’ John Wick spinoff Ballerina delayed a year to amp up the action

Lionsgate’s new take on “The Crow” will replace “Ballerina” on the 2024 schedule.

Fans of the John Wick franchise will have to wait a while longer to see Ana de Armas take up arms.

Ballerina, the spinoff movie starring de Armas as another assassin in the John Wick universe, has been pushed back a year and will now hit theaters June 7, 2025, EW has confirmed.

Directed by Underworld filmmaker Len Wiseman, Ballerina will feature Keanu Reeves as Wick, as well as Anjelica Huston, Gabriel Byrne, the late Lance Reddick, Catalina Sandino Moreno, Norman Reedus, and Ian McShane. EW understands that Chad Stahelski, who helmed all four John Wick films, is working with Wiseman on additional action sequences, with the principals having agreed that more time was desirable to complete the film.

Lionsgate will now release its new take on The Crow on June 6, 2024. This reboot of the franchise about a vengeful undead superhero stars Bill Skarsgård in the titular role, along with FKA Twigs, Danny Huston, Laura Birn, Sami Bouajila, and Jordan Bolger. The Crow is directed by Snow White and the Huntsman filmmaker Rupert Sanders.

When EW spoke with Reeves last year, the Matrix star was enthusiastic about his involvement in Ballerina, which acts as a sequel to John Wick: Chapter Three and a prequel to John Wick: Chapter 4.

“I got to work with Ana de Armas, and the director Len Wiseman, and they had a great script, and John Wick has a small part to play in it,” Reeves said. “Len Wiseman was cool. He was like, ‘Where do you want to pitch this story in [the] timeline?’ So it takes place between chapter 3 and chapter 4 of the John Wick stories. It was fun to put the suit back on.”
