Sandra Bullock’s desire to work with Keanu Reeves again is clear, as the actress recently expressed her enthusiasm for the prospect of collaborating on one more film with him before she “dies”. The actress, 59, recently stated during a joint appearance with Reeves on the 50 MPH podcast: on Monday, May 6.

“Before I die, before I leave this planet, I do think that Keanu and I need to do something in front of the camera.”

And let’s face it, who wouldn’t want to see these two talented actors team up once again to knock it out of the park? Regarding the prospect of a third Speed flick, Reeves remained open to the notion, teasing:

“It does feel like it’s — there is a siren call to it. I think I would love to work with you again before our eyes close. I think we’d freakin’ knock it out of the park.”

The Oscar-winning actress announced back in 2022 that she intended to take a break from acting and producing in order to spend more time with her kids. Bullock told The Hollywood Reporter:

“I don’t want to be beholden to anyone’s schedule other than my own. I’m so burnt out. I’m so tired, and I’m so not capable of making healthy, smart decisions and I know it.”

Okay, so get ready, Hollywood, because Bullock is back and better than ever, and with Reeves by her side, their upcoming project is bound to be a smash hit. Let the countdown begin for their onscreen reunion; we can’t wait to see what magic they create together!

Speed is available to rent on Apple TV.
