Anjelica Huston is set to appear in the John Wick spin-off movie Ballerina.
According to the Hot Mic podcast hosts John Rocha and Jeff Sneider, Anjelica Huston has joined the cast of Ballerina, the upcoming John Wick spin-off starring Ana de Armas. Huston’s Ballerina casting comes on the same week as the additions of Keanu Reeves and Ian McShane, who are reprising their roles as John Wick and Winston Scott, respectively.
Anjelica Huston made her John Wick universe debut in the third entry of the popular action series, playing The Director, the head of the crime organization Ruska Roma. During one of her scenes in the movie, Huston is seen directing ballet, performed by female orphans that presumably go on to become assassins.
Ana de Armas is playing the lead character of Ballerina. The John Wick spin-off revolves around a deadly woman who uses her skills to get on revenge on the hitmen who killed her family. The film’s screenplay comes from Shay Hatten, the writer behind Parabellum and Army of the Dead.
