Producers Keen To Land John Wick Star
Following on from the announcement of his return in the forthcoming Matrix 4 film, franchise heavy-hitter Keanu Reeves could potentially be joining the Fast & Furious franchise.
The John Wick star has reportedly discussed a potential role in the Fast & Furious series, according to screenwriter Chris Morgan –
“I sat down with him and we’re talking about [it], I wanted him to be in the Fast universe for a very long time. We’re just trying to find… the hardest thing is always time and competing schedules and then designing the right thing together. My fervent desire is to bring him into this franchise for sure”
Though it’s unclear when the conversation took place and Reeves himself has yet to comment on the reports, it’s not the first time the actor’s name has cropped up with the Fast fambly. Dwayne Johnson previously shot down rumours of a Reeves cameo in the spin-off Hobbs & Shaw, revealing to MTV News in June that he and his fellow action hero have been “texting” and are definitely up for a collaboration “somewhere down the line”.
Reeves is possibly set to join “rapper” Cardi B for The Fast & Furious 9, after the confirmation of her role alongside another no-mark named Ozuna. As well as The Matrix 4, the actor is also involved with John Wick: Chapter 4 and Bill & Ted Face The Music.
The last official Fast & Furious film, was the 8th installment known as The Fate Of The Furious, which came out back in 2017.
