If there are classic blockbuster films from the 1990s that come into your head when you think about the 90s era, we can be pretty sure that many of those films will have the presence of Keanu Reeves as the lead in them. Most popular for playing the role of NEO in the classic The Matrix series, the star helped the franchise become the cultural phenomenon that it is to this day!
But not only did he make contributions to one franchise, his presence as the lead along with co-star Sandra Bullock in the film Speed made the film into an Oscar-Winning commercial success. Thus, after almost three decades of the film’s arrival into the history of cinema, Bullock is excited for the chance of working with his fellow star once more for a third film from the franchise.

While he might be the talk of the town in this day and age for playing the role of the most deadly assassin in the world in the John Wick franchise, Keanu Reeves still maintains the versatility of playing any role that he has been assigned to. Thus, from action thrillers to comedy dramas, the Constantine star has been a fan-favorite actor to see on the big screen. Thus, it’s no surprise that many stars from the industry might also want to work with him again.

“If Daniel would direct Speed 3: Horsepower…that’s what’ll get me out of the house.”
While Radcliffe might have an idea about what the film shall look like in his head, the chances of Reeves returning to the franchise after his absence from the second film in the series is highly unlikely.
