Keanu Reeves Has Met With Fast & Furious Writer About Possible Role

Keanu Reeves Has Met With Fast & Furious Writer About Possible Role

The Fast & Furious franchise has been blessed with some of the biggest names in Hollywood including Vin Diesel, Ludacris, Gal Gadot, Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Ronda Rousey, Kurt Russell, Dame Helen Mirren and the late Paul Walker to name a few.

Now Chris Morgan, the writer of the movies, has suggested that Keanu Reeves could be next in line to star in one of the future films (because, let's face it, they're never going to stop).

He said: "I sat down with him and we're talking about. I wanted him to be in the Fast universe for a very long time.

"We're just trying to find... the hardest thing is always time and competing schedules and then designing the right thing together. My fervent desire is to bring him into this franchise for sure."

If they're able to work something out, 55-year-old Reeves would be joining Cardi B, who was announced as a newbie recently.

The 'I Like It' artist was announced as a recent cast member by Diesel, who has uploaded a video of them both on set.

He said to the camera: "Day 86 here on the set of Fast 9. I know I'm exhausted. We all gave every single thing we could for this movie."

Cardi B, 27, added: "I'm tired, but I can't wait. I ain't gonna front, this is gonna be the best one. I need to take a nappy-nap."

WWE star John Cena has also been revealed to be joining the cast, however that's at the cost of two of the franchise's biggest actors: Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson and Jason Statham.

Speaking to MTV News, former wrestler Johnson said: "The plan has always been for the Fast and Furious universe to grow and expand.

"As of now, we're not in Fast 9 because they're getting ready to start shooting. But who knows with Fast 10 and down the road, you never know."

While some may suspect the decision to stay out of the new film is actually down to the Rock's feud with fellow star Vin Diesel, Johnson claimed there was 'no ill will' between the two.
