The John Wick series has turned out to be a great boon for Keanu Reeves’ flailing career ever since the Matrix trilogy. Keanu portrayed an assassin who is out to avenge his dog and a lot of people believed that the star would keep aiming forward, however, just a while back Reaves stated that he is keen to feature in a sequel to one of his most memorable roles, Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure and he said that he hopes to see that happen “before I’m 60.”
“We’re trying,” Reeves said while attending a panel at New York Comic Con in response to a question about the project.“There’s a script out there. We’re just trying to get it made. Show business is tough.“
“It’s a cautionary tale,” Reeves revealed about the possible storyline of the sequel. “They’re supposed to save the world. But when we see them, they haven’t saved the world, and they’re married and have kids. And they’re playing to nobody. … But they have to write the song… and face the music! Hopefully we’ll make it before I’m 60.”
Reeves was focused on being an action star after the release of the first two films and he featured in several hits such as Speed, Constantine and 47 Ronin. For a number of years, he didn’t even think about starring in the sequel of a film that featured him as an exhausted wannabe rocker and he used to avoid any talk about the film.
It has been nearly three decades since the first film came out and the actor has noticed the kind of love and desire fans have to see a new sequel despite the long gap. Another noticeable thing is that movies such as The Neon Demon, The Bad Batch and Knock Knock have allowed Reeves to feature in more uncharacteristic movies.
His co-star Alex Winter shared Reeves’ keenness in the project last year during an interview with The Sun. “The script is already written for the third film and much of it is set in the UK,” Winter was reported as saying. “The whole film is going to have a huge British feel….They’ll time-travel through London and meet historical figures, meaning the Queen and Winston Churchill could get cameos.“
As of now Keanu will next be seen in the science fiction movie Replicas.
