Yes, we are thinking about him coming back. Between the ongoing John Wick series and the recent success of Bill and Ted Face’s music, Keanu Reeves has many fans A place to celebrate.

The profession of an actor is stronger than ever. He will appear in at least two more John Wick movies. Reeves is filming “The Matrix 4.” Ironically, this original 1999 film once saved his career.

Keanu Reeves broke out in the late 1980s

Reeves made his big screen debut on Youngblood, a TV series starring Patrick Swayze co-starring Rob Lowe and Reeves’ future Point Break in 1986. Over the next few years, Reeves performed well in River’s Edge, Permanent Record and Dangerous Liaisons.

Then in 1994, Reeves consolidated his leadership and credibility as an action hero. Speed ​​became one of the biggest successes of the year. Suddenly, Reeves became one of Hollywood’s most popular stars.

But the actor immediately faced an addiction after hitting “Speed”

Speed ​​opened many doors for Reeves. But he is still trying to replicate its success. In the years following the release, he undertook many projects. In 1995, he starred in opposition to Dolph Lundgren in the science fiction action thriller “Johnny Mnemonic”. But the film’s box office was disappointing and failed to recover its $26 million budget.

The following year, Reeves tried again.

 Chain Reaction also did a similar business, but with a budget of $50 million. Reeves was exhausted and gave up the opportunity to return to the 1997 Speed ​​2: Cruise Control System.

Now, because of “John Wick”, Reeves is back at the top of the list

In the late 2000s/early 2010s, the actor’s career experienced a similar calm. “The Day the Earth Stopped” and the disappointing audience of 47-year-old Ronin made Reeves’s star slightly bleak.

John Wick’s 2019 release:

Chapter 3-Parabellum, Toy Story 4 and the Netflix comedy “Perhaps Forever” confirmed “Keanaissance”. Now, he is preparing to release the fourth chapter of the “The Matrix” and “John Wick” series in 2022. For Reeves, the situation is brighter than ever. The only question now is what exciting project he will work on next.
