Ana de Armas pokes fun at the ballerina's fight scene with Keanu Reeves' John Wick and praises her co-star for the movie The spin-off film has been shooting for four months.
Ana de Armas teases her fight scene with Keanu Reeves' John Wick's ballerina. Ballerina is the fifth installment in the John Wick series, and Armas plays Rooney, a character who first appeared in John Wick 3: Chapter 3 - Parabellum before being played by ballerina Unity Phelan. Lionsgate officially announced in April 2022 that filming would begin in Prague in November.
On The Tonight Show, Armas described a ballerina fight scene she rehearsed with Reeves. She shared the difficulty of filming the stunt, which often left her "sore" and "bruised". However, after a rehearsal with the John Wick cast, she joked that she "couldn't complain anymore" because of the ease and professionalism with which he performed his stunts. Check out Armas' full quote for the scene below:
We’ve been in Prague filming for four months. We still have one more month to go. And I’m in pain. You know, my body, my back, everything hurts. I’m complaining, I’m sore, I’m bruised. Bond was fifteen minutes. This is a whole movie, another level. But the other day, Keanu and I were rehearsing our very difficult stunt scene, and this man is just rolling and throwing me and doing crazy stunts. And I’m like — I can’t complain anymore. Because he is doing it! He truly is the best.

The story will take place before the events of John Wick: Chapter 4, although the film was released earlier. In John Wick 3, Rooney is still a ballet dancer in training for an assassin; in the fifth installment, Rooney will be a full-fledged assassin hunting down the killers of her family. Little else has been revealed about the story, but there's no doubt the story will take place within the fabric of the series' unique criminal underworld -- and the action sequences will be just as stylish and colorful. After the disappointing executions of previous titles like Black Widow and Red Sparrow, audiences were particularly eager to see how the movie would interpret the ballerina-assassin concept.
