Keanu Reeves has ‘had talks’ about being in the Fast & Furious franchise

October 25th, 2019 by Marc Comments

You may recall that before Hobbs & Shaw – the Fast & Furious spin-off – was released, there were rumours that Matrix/Bill & Ted/John Wick star Keanu Reeves was set to appear (turns out he was set to but ultimately didn’t), well now it seems that it could still happen at some stage.

Fast & Furious and Hobbs & Shaw writer Chris Morgan has confirmed that he has met with Keanu Reeves about appearing in the universe of these movies at some stage in the future: “I sat down with him and we’re talking about,” he said.

“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.”

Reeves is enjoying a second-coming of sorts at the moment thanks to the John Wick franchise and the returning Bill & Ted and The Matrix, so having him in the Fast & Furious franchise would be a smart move… and a very welcome one by fans.

Look, I’m calling it now, he’ll be the villain in Hobbs & Shaw 2… I’d put money on it (if I had any).

Anyway, what say you all?

Are you a fan of the Fast franchise? Would you like to see Reeves in it? I want to hear what you all think.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
