Lionsgate pushes back the release date of John Wick spinoff Ballerina to 2025, with the reboot of The Crow taking its place.

Ballerina, release date, The Crow reboot

If you were looking forward to seeing Ana de Armas kick some ass in the upcoming John Wick spinoff, I’ve got some bad news. Lionsgate announced today that Ballerina will be pushed back a full year, with the release date moving from June 7, 2024 to June 6, 2025.

Deadline reports that the release date push will give Ballerina the opportunity to do a few reshoots. John Wick architect Chad Stahelski will be working with director Len Wiseman on “additional action sequences for the movie, to amp it up even more than it is.

Ballerina stars Ana de Armas as a young woman with killer skills who sets out to get revenge when hitmen kill her family. As the film takes place in the John Wick universe, it will feature appearances from several franchise characters, including Ian McShane as Winston, the owner of the Continental Hotel, the late Lance Reddick as Charon, the Continental’s concierge, and Anjelica Huston as the Director, the head of the Ruska Roma. The film will also include Catalina Sandino Moreno, Gabriel Bryne, and Norman Reedus in unknown roles.

Ballerina‘s old release date was quickly filled by Rupert Sanders’ upcoming reboot of The Crow, a movie which I still can’t believe actually got made after years of false starts and development hell, but will now be hitting theaters on June 7th. The modern reimagining of the original graphic novel by James O’Barr stars Bill Skarsgård in the title role. “Soulmates Eric Draven (Skarsgård) and Shelly Webster (FKA twigs) are brutally murdered when the demons of her dark past catch up with them,” reads the official synopsis. “Given the chance to save his true love by sacrificing himself, Eric sets out to seek merciless revenge on their killers, traversing the worlds of the living and the dead to put the wrong things right.” The film also stars Danny Huston, Laura Birn, Sami Bouajila, and Jodran Bolger.
