Recently, it was revealed that the talented Keanu Reeves was being considered to be one of the villains in the franchise. Fast and furiousBut things just didn’t come to fruition. Immediately, some netizens thought that he is too much of an actor for so little film, is it?
But, without a doubt, the one who is grateful that things did not work out with Keanu is also the actor Alan Ritchson, because due to the lack of agreement with the protagonist of john wickhe was able to enter quite to play Aimes in fast and furious 10.
It is worth mentioning that this is not the first time that Keanu Reeves is contemplated by the screenwriter of Fast and furious, Chris Morgan, on joining the franchise. In 2018, he was reportedly considered for the role of the villainous Director of Eteon in Hobbs & Shaw, but, according to Morgan, the actor’s busy schedule prevented him from being part of the cast.
For his part, in 2019, during his participation in the The Fourth Wall podcastthe director of the tape, David Leitch, revealed that he would like to work with the protagonist of Constantine in the future, because even though things didn’t work out for that movie, he doesn’t lose hope that they can do something together.
I talked to Keanu about being in the movie. It just wasn’t the right time when he was doing things. We have been talking about it for a long time. So it really came down to the things he wanted to do and everyone’s schedule. It didn’t work out this time, but I hope to work with Keanu on something hopefully.
Four years later, according to the Daily Mail, Keanu Reeves turned down joining the franchise in its tenth installment. We don’t know what you think, but we think it would have been interesting to see our beloved Keanu as Agent Aimes in the film directed by Louis Leterrier. Though Alan Ritchson, who ultimately stuck with the character, says it was a lucky break for him.
It was just a little fluke and good timing. She was working [en ‘Ordinary Angels’] with Hilary Swank in Winnipeg, in the freezing cold, and I got a call that things had changed in plans with Keanu Reeves, who I think was originally meant to play my part.
We have no doubt that the famous screenwriter manages to find a project so special that the talented Canadian actor simply cannot refuse.
