What’s next after this ad
The Matrix, John Wick, or even Speed or Knock Knock, the same should be said Keanu Reeves has loomed large in our video game landscape for several years, and it continues along the coast of popularity that does not stop growing. Nevertheless, the latter claimed that he has been blacklisted by Hollywood, but why?
Keanu Reeves, Hollywood’s Sweetest Man?
This is actually confirmed by the actor who lent his features and voice to the character Johnny Silverhand in Cyberpunk 2077. Keanu ReevesWhich is now world famous and above all hugely popular and appreciated by all, remained indifferent with Fox for many years after the decision was made. In an interview with GQ in 2019, he revealed that he has decided not to film the sequel to Speed, i.e. Speed 2: Into Danger.Because apart from being tired from his many shoots, he was not really convinced with the script.
anymore, 20th Century Fox studios would not have contacted him for 15 years,
It was a tough decision, I really enjoyed shooting and doing the speed. The film did very well, so we said to ourselves ‘let’s do it again’. At that time, I was shooting for a film called Chain Reaction. I was in Chicago and I read the script. This film was very physical. (…) They showed me the script and I didn’t see it. I didn’t understand. That’s why I couldn’t do it. I believe I didn’t work at Fox for 15 years after that, but I don’t know. This is just a theory. I started working on it again, but it took 15 years.
It must be said that despite this blacklist, it didn’t really affect our actor’s career because only a few years later, we were able to find him in The Matrix and, above all, in the John Wick saga!
