Lionsgate has closed a deal for Oscar® nominee CATALINA SANDINO MORENO to join the cast of Ballerina, starring opposite Ana de Armas in Ballerina, the new film set in the John Wick universe.

The film’s production is now underway.

Len Wiseman is directing.

The screenplay is written by Shay Hatten.

The producers are Basil Iwanyk, Erica Lee, and Chad Stahelski. 

Brady Fujikawa and Chelsea Kujawa are overseeing the project for Lionsgate. 

Producer Erica Lee said: “One of the challenges of casting Ballerina is making sure that the new roles are played by actors with as much power, emotional presence, and physical skill as Ana has. After working with Catalina on John Woo’s Silent Night, it was clear that she belonged at the top of our list, and it’s a thrill to be reuniting with her.”

An Oscar nominee for her debut performance in Maria Full of Grace, Catalina Sandino Moreno will next be seen as the female lead in acclaimed director John Woo’s upcoming feature Silent Night opposite Joel Kinnaman and Kid Cudi; she recently starred in the indie Barbarians opposite Iwan Rheon and Tom Cullen. She stars in the Epix horror series “From,” currently shooting its second season. Other recent work includes a role as a series regular on Showtime’s “The Affair” and a starring role on the Duplass Brothers’ HBO series “Room 104.” Please see attached for her complete bio. She is represented by Lasher Group, UTA, and Felker Toczek Suddleson Abramson.
