Pictures of Keanu on set for the 3rd installment of John Wick last July 18 has been added to our gallery.
Keanu Reeves attended the premiere of his upcoming movie Siberia on Wednesday night (July 11) at the Metrograph in New York City.
On the movie, he plays an American who travels to Russia to sell some rare blue diamonds, but finds himself in the treacherous world of the diamond trade.
Siberia will open in theaters and on VOD on Friday, July 13.
The first trailer for Destination Wedding, reuniting Keanu Reeves and Winona Ryder, was released earlier today.
Director and writer Victor Levin tells PEOPLE he was just as excited as everyone else to get these two back together.
“As a fan, I have such longstanding love for both of them and for their work, so it feels really good to see them together again,” Levin says. “And as a filmmaker, I have the benefit of their having known each other for so long. They have superb natural chemistry together, which is so important for a love story.”
Ryder’s Lindsay and Reeves’ Frank arrive at a destination wedding only to discover they’re the guests no one knows where to put, and are therefore stuck together. Though they hate each other at first, the pessimistic duo start to bond throughout the days-long affair.
“Keanu and Winona are stars for a reason: they have huge talent and skill, and they work very hard,” Levin says. But they also keep it fun. They rehearsed their dialogue together, helped each other, made everybody laugh — they were delightful. They are the movie. It’s about their characters and the healing power of love and laughter.”
Destination Wedding hits theaters August 24.
Deadline is reporting that Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter are now confirmed to reprise their roles in a third Bill & Ted movie.
Bloom is launching sales in Cannes on the long-gestating time time-travel comedy, called Bill & Ted Face The Music, which is likely to be one of the hottest properties at the market.
Currently in pre-production, the movie has been written by the franchise’s original creators Chris Matheson (Imagine That) and Ed Solomon (Men in Black) with Dean Parisot (Galaxy Quest) confirmed to direct. Scott Kroopf (Limitless) will produce together with Alex Lebovici and Steve Ponce of Hammerstone Studios, with Steven Soderbergh serving as an executive producer alongside Scott Fischer, John Ryan Jr., and John Santilli.
When we last picked up with the most audacious dudes they were time-traveling teenagers trying to pass history class and win the battle of the bands. Once prophesized to save the universe with their rock and roll, according to the production the new movie will see the two best friends as middle age men with family responsibilities who have still yet to fulfill their destiny. They’ve written thousands of tunes, but they have yet to write a good one, much less the greatest song ever written. With the fabric of time and space tearing around them, a visitor from the future warns the duo that only their music can save life as we know it. Out of luck and fresh out of inspiration, Bill and Ted set out on another time travel adventure — with the help of their daughters, a new crop of historical figures, and some sympathetic music legends — to seek the song that will set their world right and bring harmony in the universe as we know it.
MGM owns the rights to the film and will release in the U.S. under their Orion Pictures banner while Bloom is handling international sales. Endeavor Content negotiated the U.S. deal. The project has already piqued the interest of buyers in Cannes, we understand.
Winter and Reeves said today, “We couldn’t be more excited to get the whole band back together again. Chris and Ed wrote an amazing script, and with Dean at the helm we’ve got a dream team!”
Some news about a possible Bill & Ted 3! Let’s hope this happens!

Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure hit theaters in 1989 and became a box office phenomenon. It was a multimedia franchise for the multimedia age. There was a cartoon spin-off, a live-action TV spin-off, a Nintendo game. 1991 brought a sequel, Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey, where the San Dimas duo played by Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter went on a journey through the afterlife, meeting the Grim Reaper (William Sadler) and defeating him in a bout of Battleship.
Almost 30 years later, Hollywood runs on reboots and revivals. The top-grossing films from 1989 include an Indiana Jones, a Batman, a Lethal Weapon, a Ghostbusters, and Disney’s version of The Little Mermaid, all franchises that still exist in various stages of activity. (The most-watched show of 1989 was Roseanne, currently earning big ’80s ratings on 2010s network television.) Could there be another Bill & Ted movie? This was the big question on our minds when we reunited Reeves and Winter with original Bill & Ted writers Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon.
The lead actors had kept in touch over the years. (They actually worked together in 2015, when Winter, a director and a documentarian, had the John Wick star narrate his film Deep Web.) And the possibility of a new Bill & Ted movie actually first came up over a decade ago. “Chris and Ed came to us in 2007 with the idea of doing it,” Reeves explains, “They pitched us an idea. It sounded great.” Simple, right? “In show business,” Reeves says, wearily, “There’s show and then there’s business.”
“We’ve been to the altar a few times,” is how Solomon describes the lengthy development process, which has been full of rumors but has resulted in no actual production news as of yet. “We get rejected right about the ‘now you may kiss the bride’ part of it.”
Solomon and Matheson wrote a complete script for the third film on spec. “‘Spec’ means ‘for free’ for all you folks in Toledo, Ohio, who don’t read all the entertainment blogs,” jokes Winter.
“We wanted to get it right,” Solomon explains. “We wanted to have it be something that we — all four of us, Chris and I, Alex and Keanu — could stand behind, and know we’re doing this for the right reasons.”
The result of their efforts is a script titled Bill & Ted Face the Music, which finds our intrepid explorers still struggling to complete the great work of their life. At the end of Excellent Adventure, futuristic mentor Rufus (George Carlin) told the teens that they would write music that would turn the world into a utopia. “You’re told you’re gonna save the world,” Matheson says. “And now you’re 50 and you haven’t done it. Now they’re married, and it affects their marriages, and it affects their relationships with their kids, and it affects their everything.”
“Everybody’s a little older now,” notes Reeves. “A little afraid.”
“There’s certain comparisons,” says Winter. “A rock band that never goes to the place it thought it was going to get to. Having that moment in their life of going: ‘Do we try to get there, or give up the dream?’”
“Indomitable spirits confronted with, ‘Is this the end?’” Reeves continues. “Of course, there is a little caveat in that someone comes from the future and says: ‘Not only do you have to save the world, you have to save everything.’”
“I think it’s kind of like A Christmas Carol with Bill and Ted,” teases Solomon. “Looking at their lives, and really kind of rediscovering what they’re about.”
And here’s some nigh-bodacious news: To hear the creative team talk, we’ve never been closer to the third Bill & Ted. “We are hoping to close a deal with some financiers,” says Solomon. “Hopefully within the next month or so, we’ll have news that will stick.”
“We went out and found a director,” says Winter. “Dean Parisot, who we love, did Galaxy Quest, which is a masterpiece.”
“Steven Soderbergh is one of the producers on it,” says Solomon. “Along with Scott Kroopf, the original producer [of Excellent Adventure and Bogus Journey]. Bill Sadler is back, returning as death, and a few delicious cameos by people to be named another time.”
Will Bill & Ted Face the Music triumphantly emerge from development hell as triumphantly as the main characters ascended from actual Hell? Winter, at least, has a suitably historical serenity when he describes the process of making the third film. “The whole trajectory of getting the next one off the ground has been pretty much exactly like the experience of getting the original. Going to every studio, and they’re like, ‘What the eff is this?’ It’s this kind of independent spirit, and the films have an anachronistic quality to them that’s a big part of what they are, fundamentally. I’m really happy that this one is the same. It doesn’t feel like some stale knockoff that a studio would have immediately gone, ‘Oh, this feels right. We have rebranded very successfully.’”
“I love the characters so much — who they are, the spirit of their voice that Chris and Ed have given [them],” says Reeves, noting the underlying message of the original film, stated explicitly by Bill and Ted (and even Abraham Lincoln). “You can’t go wrong with: ‘Be excellent to each other.’ And: ‘Party on!’ I mean, it might actually be the beginning, one of the first examples of contemporary modern apocalyptic art.”
“Now we have to make the third one,” says Winter. “Before the apocalypse!”
Keanu Reeves calmly surfs a motorcycle while sing-speaking along to Will Powers’ inspirational and affirmation-heavy song “Adventures in Success” in Squarespace’s 30-second Super Bowl spot. The ad kicks off a new campaign for Squarespace, “Make It Happen,” starring Reeves.
Reeves is the co-founder of Arch Motorcycle, which used Squarespace for its website before Reeves was approached for the ad.
Super Bowl LII begins at 6:30 p.m. EST on NBC.
Hello! Continuing with our gallery updates, you can now find all photoshoots and portraits we could find since 1984. We tried our best to separate it into years (some are pretty old and we couldn’t source them any longer) so any help to date/source it is appreciated. Enjoy all the pretty!
First of all, hello! My name is Luciana and I’ll be helping Annie here at Keanu Reeves Online. I’m a longtime fan and I’m really excited!
To start, I have updated our gallery with pictures of the most recent events Keanu has attended. You can follow the links below:
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.”
