‘My whole body hurts’: Ana de Armas talks about training with Keanu Reeves for John Wick spin-off

Ana de Armas talks about the filming of “Ballerina”, the spin-off of “John Wick”, and her intensive training with Keanu Reeves.

Currently filming Ballerina, the spin-off of John Wick, Ana de Armas confessed to Jimmy Fallon, during the show The Tonight Showthat the action scenes of this thriller were particularly difficult to shoot.

The actress had already undergone rigorous training for the needs of the latest James Bond, Die can wait, but Ballerina is, it seems, much more intense.

She states thus:We have been in Prague for 4 months for the shoot. We still have a month left. And I’m in pain. My body, my back… everything hurts me. I complain, it hurts, I have bruises. Bond’s action scene lasted 15 minutes. There, it’s a whole movie, it’s another level.”

Especially since Ana de Armas, recently nominated in the Best Actress category at the Golden Globes for Blonde, shared scenes with martial arts expert Keanu Reeves.

She praises the professionalism and dedication of franchise star John Wick. “Keanu and I were rehearsing a very difficult stunt scene, and he was rolling, throwing me, and doing crazy stunts. And I was like, “I can’t complain anymore. Because he does!” It really is the best.”

As a reminder, the 2 actors had already given the reply in the horror film by Eli Roth, Knock Knock, in 2015.

Directed by Len Wiseman (Underworld), Ballerina features a young killer who seeks revenge on those who murdered her family. The latter is formed by the Ruska Roma union, led by the Director, a role that Anjelica Huston – already in the cast of John Wick – takes over.

Ana de Armas, Keanu Reeves and Anjelica Huston will give the reply to Ian McShane and Lance Reddick (already seen in the main saga) but also to Norman Reedus alias Daryl in The Walking Dead, Gabriel Byrne and Catalina Sandino Moreno (The Affair).

No release date has yet been announced. But fans have plenty to wait since John Wick: Chapter 4 will be released in our theaters on March 22, 2023.
