Keanu Reeves is no doubt, an in-demand actor since he gets cast in multiple projects left and right. And aside from the popular franchises he’s been in like The Matrix and John Wick, it looks like another one could be added on the list.

Screenrant recently spoke with Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw writer Chris Morgan ahead of the show release. Morgan revealed that he has met with Keanu Reeves to talk about including the actor in a movie from the Fast franchise in the future. “I sat down with him and we’re talking about [it],” the director said.

He went on to say he has wanted Reeves to be in the Fast universe “for a very long time” now. “We’re just trying to find... the hardest thing is always time and competing schedules and then designing the right thing together,” Morgan added. He revealed that it’s his “fervent desire” to bring Reeves into the franchise.

Fast & Furious has become one of the biggest movie franchises and Reeves being in it would make the franchise even more exciting. If you weren’t aware, Dwayne Johnson revealed prior that Reeves was supposed to be in a film where he is said to be the leader of a terrorist organization. This idea immediately fell through since Reeves couldn’t do the film.

It would be so cool to see Reeves take on another action-packed film. And even though he’s very busy with different projects in line, the director is still very much in hopes to include the popular actor in the franchise. For now, we’ll have to wait for further announcements to see if both parties have settled on a deal for a future movie.

Reeves is working on the sequel John Wick 4 which is set for release on May 21, 2021.
