Pop-Quiz, hotshot: Are you ready for Speed 3? Okay, perhaps not, but Nerdist recently sat down with original Speed star Keanu Reeves and got the actor to verbally commit to the sequel. Was it all in jest? Watch the video below and decide for yourself!
When the reporter prompted him on the potential threequel, Reeves looked askance and said, “Oh my gosh, ‘Speed 3: Redemption’! Sure. You know what I mean? Jack Traven just dusting it off.”
It’s been two decades since the 1994 sleeper hit grossed $350 million dollars worldwide and nearly as long since Reeves said “hell no” to the sequel Speed 2: Cruise Control, which was a bonafide disaster. Just last year, Yahoo! asked Reeves if he would go back to the well for a third outing to which he responded emphatically, “Oh my gosh, no, I think that bus has left.”
Time apparently heals all wounds as Reeves is now maybe looking to catch the bus again. Is this still a viable franchise? Would Oscar-winner Sandra Bullock get back behind the wheel as well? Is it all just a joke? What do you do? What do you do?
