Keanu Reeves attended the NY Comic Con where he talked about his upcoming projects:
New York Comic Con has packed in some big names and big events this week, but one of the headline stealers would have to be Keanu Reeves. The 53-year old was out and about promoting his part in the 2017 science-fiction thriller Replicas, yet it would be his role in a number of beloved properties that would take up much of his time with the press.
The first of which would be John Wick: Chapter 3, with the sequel scoring an official release date of May 17, 2019. With everyone from Samuel L. Jackson to Tilda Swinton linked to the blockbuster, as well as a television series spinoff and a mooted crossover with Atomic Blonde, Reeves intimated that the hero might not make it through to title number 4 (if there is one).
With the anti-hero being left in something of a precarious position for John Wick: Chapter 2, Reeves outlined how he and filmmaker Chad Stahelski were working on the screenplay for the third installment. It is a bit obvious to say that a man hunted down by assassins is in trouble, but that must be something else judging by the first two films in the series.
“John Wick – John Wick’s in trouble!” he proclaimed. “So we’ve been working on it and I think we have some good ideas. Yeah, some really good ideas. But John’s in trouble. Hopefully we can start shooting that next year. Chad and I thought it was hard to make a second one. And now we’re like…a third one?!”
Another project that is in the pipeline is Bill & Ted 3, a long awaited sequel to 1991’s Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey. Whereas John Wick: Chapter 3 has a date locked in despite a script that is still in the works, this comedy adventure piece is in the opposite scenario.
“We’re trying,” he said. “There’s a script out there. We’re just trying to get it made. Show business is tough. It’s a cautionary tale. They’re supposed to save the world. But when we see them they haven’t saved the world and they’re married and have kids. And they’re playing to nobody. … But they have to write the song… and face the music! Hopefully we’ll make it before I’m 60.”
