Keanu Reeves is expected to play John Wick in "Ballerina," a female-focused spinoff of the popular action franchise.
The studio behind the series, Lionsgate, declined to comment on Reeves' casting, but it did confirm that Ian McShane has signed a deal to reprise his role as Winston.
Ana de Armas plays a young female assassin seeking vengeance on those who murdered her family in "Ballerina."
Any additional plot details are unknown, but producer Basil Iwanyk described McShane's role as "pivotal.
It's unclear how Reeves will fit into the story if his deal is completed.
"We're delighted to have Ian McShane join us for a key role in 'Ballerina,'" Iwanyk said. "He's been a huge part of the franchise since the first John Wick."
