Sandra Bullock reveals how she wants to do Speed sequel with Keanu Reeves

Sandra Bullock reveals how she wants to do Speed sequel with Keanu Reeves

Sandra Bullock has a proposal for Keanu Reeves, which she hopes will persuade him to do a Speed sequel.

Sandra Bullock has revealed how she wants to do a Speed sequel with Keanu Reeves at some point in the future.

There is no questioning Reeves is one of the biggest stars in Hollywood, and is arguably best known for being John Wick himself.

But nearly 30 years ago, Reeves starred in the Jan de Bont-directed 1994 film Speed, alongside Bullock.

Following the success of Speed, a sequel Speed 2: Cruise Control, released in 1997 - but it was very much a failure.

The film sits at one of the worst rated films ever, with a shockingly low four percent score critics' score on Rotten Tomatoes and fans were not massively keen, either.

And while Bullock returned to the cast for the sequel, Reeves decided against it - potentially dodging a bullet there, some would say.

It was believed at the time Reeves decided against returning due to the vision behind the second project, but Bullock now has a more outlandish idea to try and get Reeves on-board.

Bullock told Esquire in 2021: "I would love nothing more than to do a comedy with Keanu before we die. Just laugh with him. He’s funny.

"We can be seventy-five — it’ll be even better then, like an old-people Cocoon thing.

"We play two funny old people. A road trip. Just put us in an RV as old people. It’ll be the bookend of Speed! We’ll just be driving really slowly. P****** the world off. There’s our movie."

For many years, fans have speculated about a potential romance between Bullock and Reeves, especially following their appearance in Speed.

In the Esquire interview, the question of a possible romance was posed to Bullock.

She said: "Keanu’s a guy who, I feel like, is friends with every woman he’s ever dated.

"I don’t think there’s anyone who has something horrible to say about him. So maybe we could have survived."

But Bullock added she ultimately believes a romantic relationship could have ruined their friendship.

"We just get to grow up together on parallel roads and tip our hats and meet for a dinner and try to work together," she added.

"And the longer time goes on, the more in awe I am of the human being.

"Would I have been able to say that if he had dumped me and made me angry? Probably not."

While it may seem unlikely Reeves would return for a third Speed film, he has said he would entertain it on one condition.
