Ballerina: Emerald Fennell Brought Onboard To Help Write Script For John Wick Spinoff

In an interview with Elle Magazine, Ana de Armas revealed that Emerald Fennell has been brought onboard John Wick spinoff film, Ballerina, in order to help punch up the script for the project.

.

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

.

Speaking about looking to be more involved in the behind-the-scenes process and how Fennell came to be attached to the project, Ana de Armas told Elle:

It was really important for me to hire a female writer, because to that point when I got involved in the project, it was only the director, Len Wiseman, and another guy. And I was like, ‘That’s not going to work.’ So I interviewed, like, five or six female writers. We hired Emerald Fennell, which I was so proud of.

.

The other guy in question is writer Shay Hatten, which Fennell will be collaborating with on the script alongside director Len Wiseman. According to Variety‘s sources, the Writers Guild of America will decide whether or not Emerald Fennell will receive credit for her work on the project.

The film is being produced by Basil Iwanyk, Erica Lee and Chad Stahelski.
