In the wake of four hugely successful movies, the John Wick Cinematic Universe is getting its first spinoff movie with Ballerina, but it’s no longer releasing here in 2024.

Lionsgate’s June 7, 2024 slot will instead be filled with the reboot of The Crow.

Ana de Armas is leading the cast of Ballerina, and we recently learned that Anjelica Huston, Ian McShane and Keanu Reeves will be appearing in the movie in some capacity.

Ballerina focuses on a young female assassin who seeks revenge against the people who killed her family.”

The original movie is headed to 4K and we’ve learned tonight that Lionsgate’s brand new reboot of The Crow starring Bill Skarsgård (IT) will also release in the first half of 2024.

The Crow reboot will release in theaters on June 7, 2024!

From director Rupert Sanders (Snow White and the Huntsman, Ghost in the Shell), Bill Skarsgård (IT) is leading the cast of The Crow as Eric Draven, with singer/actor FKA Twigs co-starring. Danny Huston (30 Days of Night) also stars, alongside Laura Birn (Foundation), Sami Bouajila (A Son), and Jordan Bolger (The Woman King).

In the new movie, “Soulmates Eric Draven (Skarsgård) and Shelly Webster (FKA Twigs) are brutally murdered when the demons of her dark past catch up with them. 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.”

“We appreciate what The Crow character and original movie mean to legions of fans and believe this new film will offer audiences an authentic and visceral reinterpretation of its emotional power and mythology,” said Lionsgate’s Executive VP Acquisitions and Co-Productions, Charlotte Koh. “To work with a creative team led by Rupert’s unparalleled visual style and storytelling and with a producing team who have made some of the most popular and impactful films of the last several decades is a true privilege.”

“The original film left an indelible mark on our culture that lives on,” added the producers. “We are thrilled to bring a new adaptation for today’s audiences that respects this legacy. Rupert has masterfully brought new dimensions to create a contemporary universe for this timeless saga of undying love, and we can’t wait to share this vision with film audiences.”

Zach Baylin (King Richard) and Will Schneider wrote script, with the new movie of course based on James O’Barr’s original graphic novel that spawned a previous film franchise.

Producers on this fresh new reimagining include Molly Hassell (Braven, Terminal), Victor Hadida (Resident Evil and Silent Hill franchises), John Jencks (Honest Thief, Guns Akimbo), and Edward R. Pressman (American Psycho, The Crow, Wall Street).

In the 1994 movie starring the late Brandon Lee, Eric Draven’s fiancée is killed alongside Draven, setting the film’s revenge storyline into motion. It spawned a handful of sequels.

‘Weapons’ – Josh Brolin in Talks to Replace Pedro Pascal in ‘Barbarian’ Director’s New Movie

Up next from writer/director Zach Cregger (Barbarian) is New Line Cinema’s Weapons, and Pedro Pascal (“The Last of Us”) had originally been attached to star. But Pascal’s busy schedule, which includes “The Last of Us” Season 2 and Marvel’s Fantastic Four, forced him to drop out of the project. THR reports today that Josh Brolin (Dune 2) is now in talks to star.

Brolin would take over the role Pascal had been set to play. Stay tuned.

Renate Reinsve (The Worst Person in the World) is currently part of the Weapons cast.

The upcoming Weapons is from writer/director Zach Cregger, who will also produce alongside his Barbarian producing team: Roy Lee of Vertigo and J.D. Lifshitz and Raphael Margules of BoulderLight Pictures. Vertigo’s Miri Yoon also produces.

The Hollywood Reporter teases, “Plot details for Weapons are being kept holstered but it is described as a multi and inter-related story horror epic that tonally is in the vein of Magnolia, the 1999 actor-crammed showcase from filmmaker Paul Thomas Anderson.”

Cregger was a founding member and writer for the New York comedy troupe “The Whitest Kids U’Know,” which he started while attending The School of Visual Arts. The award-winning group’s self-titled sketch comedy show ran for five seasons on IFC-TV and Fuse. He was also a series regular on Jimmy Fallon’s NBC series “Guys with Kids” and the TBS hit series “Wrecked,” and was featured in a recurring role on the NBC series “About a Boy.”

Weapons will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures.
