Ana de Armas is in talks for the lead role in the upcoming “John Wick” spinoff film “Ballerina,” Variety has confirmed.

“Ballerina,” which has been in the works for several years, follows a young female assassin as she seeks revenge against those who killed her family. The action-thriller will be helmed by “Underworld” director Len Wiseman from a screenplay by Shay Hatten, who has also penned “John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum” and is attached to write “Chapter 4” and “Chapter 5” of the franchise as well.

Golden Globe-nominated de Armas most recently appeared in the latest James Bond installment “No Time to Die” as Paloma, a CIA agent who helps Bond (Daniel Craig) in his mission. She is also the star of the highly-anticipated Marilyn Monroe biopic “Blonde,” which is set for release in 2022. De Armas’ other credits include “Knives Out” and “Blade Runner 2049.”

“Ballerina” will be produced by Basil Iwanyk, Erica Lee and Chad Stahelski. Brady Fujikawa and Chelsea Kujawa are overseeing the project for Lionsgate. De Armas is represented by CAA and Grubman Shire Meiselas & Sacks.

Deadline Hollywood was the first to report the news of the negotiations with de Armas.
