Keanu Reeves open to Speed return, calls revisiting characters “a special thing”

Keanu Reeves is no stranger to returning to roles. In 2020, the actor returned to his role as Ted Logan in Bill & Ted Face the Music and played Neo for The Matrix Resurrections in 2021. Now, he’s currently wrapping up his John Wick saga with an epic fourth entry. 

Being able to return to a role like this makes Reeves feel highly privileged. Speaking with Looper, the actor opened up about having the opportunity to reprise beloved roles and pointed out specific examples of parts he wants to see again.

Reeves tells the outlet, “It’s cool … I never expected that starting out, so to have the opportunity to reprise roles, especially roles that you love, is a special thing. I acknowledge that. To be in John Wick: Chapter 4 is like, ‘What?’ In terms of reprising a role, I don’t know — let’s throw Jack Traven from Speed in the Wayback Machine.”

Reeves is currently promoting John Wick: Chapter 4, which dominated the box office this past weekend with a franchise high $137.5M debut.
