Meanwhile, the John Wick franchise is continuing to grow.

Oscar-nominated actress Ana de Armas began filming spin-off movie Ballerina last year.

The No Time To Die star plays a young assassin out for revenge against the hitmen who murdered her family.

Promising Young Woman writer Emerald Fennell was recently tapped to work on the script thanks to some prompting from de Armas.

"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," de Armas previously shared. "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 Continental, which premieres on Prime Video this year, will take place in New York in the 1970s.

The action-packed show will follow a young Winston Scott ( Colin Woodell) as he attempts to take control of the titular hotel.

John Wick: Chapter Four opens in cinemas on March 24. The previous John Wick movies are available to buy or rent on Prime Video, plus DVD, Blu-ray and 4K Ultra HD.
