Seventeen years after Speed 2: Cruise Control stalled at the box office, fans of the action-thriller Speed might finally get the sequel they’ve been waiting for.
Nerdist spoke with Keanu Reeves during the press tour for his upcoming revenge movie John Wick, and they asked the Speed star the big question: Would he ever consider playing Jack Traven again?
“Speed 3: The Redemption,” Reeves replied with gravitas. “Sure … Jack Traven, dusting it off.”
The answer implies that Reeves has shifted gears over the past year, because he previously told Yahoo “that bus has left.”
The actor let the bus pass him by once before, resulting in 1997’s Speed 2: Cruise Control. His co-star Sandra Bullock returned for the sequel-at-sea, with Jason Patric along for the ride. Reeves and Bullock would not work together again until the 2006 romantic drama The Lake House. Could Speed 3 bring these two back together? Odds are Bullock will be fielding similar Speed 3 questions on her next press tour.
Reeves’ new action film John Wick opens Oct. 24.
