Keanu Reeves Open to the Possibility of Coming Back for 'Speed 3'?

For years, Keanu Reeves has been asked about the possibility of returning to the Speed franchise. The actor only starred in the original film alongside Sandra Bullock as they both tried to keep control of bus that must maintain its speed of 50 miles an hour or it will explode. Speed 2: Cruise Control happened with only Bullock returning, and Reeves being replaced by the presence of Jason Patric (the movie was not good). But while at Fantastic Fest promoting John Wick (which was loved by both our own Alex Billington and Jeremy Kirk), Reeves was asked whether or not he was ready for Speed 3, and his answer was a little surprising.

Here's the short interview Nerdist had with Reeves, and the Speed 3 bit starts around 52 seconds in:

As you can see, when asked, Reeves responded ""Oh my gosh, Speed 3: Redemption! Sure. You know what I mean? Jack Traven just dusting it off." But when you watch the video, you can see that his tone was a little bit sarcastic. He could be joking, especially since he just told Yahoo last year, "Oh my gosh, no, I think that bus has left." Of course, when you see just how wild John Wick is, it's not hard to imagine that Reeves could have some more crazy fun with Speed 3. And if Reeves is willing to come back for more Bill & Ted action, why not bring Speed back too? At the same time, with the profile of Sandra Bullock's career being much higher than it was when the original Speed came out in 1994, she might not be up for returning this time. We're not necessarily dying for Speed 3, but it could be pretty fun, right?

    Yeah the longtime Speed fans are really clamoring for it. Unrelated - the autoplaying ads on the page, guys. The Keanu video had one, and partway into writing this comment the FS one at the top of the page started going. This is why people use blockers.

    It should take place on a wheelchair this time.

    Fucks sake why not.

    Honestly, I'd be more interested in seeing a new Bill and Ted action over Speed 3, but that's just me.

      They have apparently recently finished that script and are reworking it in prep for production.

    Hell, I'd watch Speed 3 if he was in it...
  • txJM
    Ugh, Jessica Chobot...
    Of course he would be up for it.
  • AwesomeWave
    I doesn't really matter anymore, go for it.

    They should play the old switcharoo on everyone and make it about Keanu having to stay completely immobile, sitting on a bench, sad.
    • Rock n Rollllll
      Thats not cool. You would be sad too if you had a rough childhood, a baby only to be born stillborn, a long time girlfriend die in a car accident, your best friend to die of a drug overdose (River Phoenix), and to lose a friend to leukemia. The guy has been through more than most so show him a little respect!

          Not something to joke about, all those facts are true. You think the guy is wasting energy to "look" depressed for publicity?!
          • Huck PS
            Friend-o, surely you know that was a joke. Haha! Why am I even taking the time to explain this...? ps: Your Keanu Reeves facts are impressive. Are you in a fan club or something?
          • Rock n Rollllll
            Just read a lot.

    Even if someone says NO to a project, all you entertainment guys will try to make it look like he said YES. Can't you understand irony when it's in front of your eyes?
