John Wick Spin-Off Ballerina Will See the Return of Ian McShane’s Winston

0


John Wick fan favorite Ian McShane is back in Ballerina – the upcoming John Wick spin-off.

The actor will reprise the role of The Continental manager, Winston, who was last seen seemingly double-crossing John Wick in the final scenes of John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum.

“We’re thrilled to have Ian McShane joining us for a pivotal role in Ballerina,” said John Wick producer Basil Iwanyk. “He’s been such an integral part of the franchise since the original John Wick. It’s been fun to have him on this journey as the Wick universe expands.”

At the moment, little is known about the John Wick spin-off, except that it will focus on the titular Ballerina – a young female assassin who is motivated to seek out the people responsible for killing her family and bring them to justice.

McShane will join Ana de Armas who landed the leading role.

Fans of the franchise will know this isn’t the first time we’ve seen the Ballerina – she actually first appeared in John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum and was training to become an assassin at the time. She was originally played by American ballet dancer Unity Phelan.

Of course, this isn’t the only appearance of Winston we’ve got to look forward to – McShane will also reprise the role in John Wick: Chapter 4, which is due to be released on March 23, 2023.

Additionally, a younger version of Winston will be the focus of The Continental – a John Wick spin-off series heading to Peacock. This time, Winston will be played by Colin Woodell.

“John Wick has become part of the cultural zeitgeist with a massive, passionately engaged fan base around the world,” said Lionsgate Television Group chair Kevin Beggs. “We’re delighted to partner with Peacock to continue expanding the John Wick Universe.”

Production on Ballerina is now underway with director Len Wiseman taking the helm. Shay Hatten wrote the screenplay while Basil Iwanyk, Erica Lee, and Chad Stahelski are on board as producers.

It’s unclear whether or not Keanu Reeves will make a cameo as the legendary John Wick.
