The kidnapped kitten at the center of the new comedy Keanu is obviously named after Keanu Reeves, the seemingly immortal star of Speed, Point Break, The Matrix, and John Wick, but we now know that the actor himself has a tiny cameo in the film. Keanu Reeves plays Keanu the cat. Well, technically he voices Keanu the cat in a scene where a character hallucinates during a crazy drug trip. However, this cameo almost didn’t happen and we have Mr. Reeves’ sister to thank for its existence.
Another ‘Bill & Ted 3’ Update: The Film Could Start Shooting Early Next Year; Other Original Cast Members Will Return
Posted on Thursday, April 7th, 2016 by Jack Giroux
It was over six years ago when Keanu Reeves first got our hopes about a Bill & Ted 3. The sequel has taken its sweet time getting to the big screen, but every once in a while, Reeves and Alex Winter let fans know the film is still very much alive, despite whatever challenges the project has faced.
Below, Winter says he’s hopeful the film will start shooting later this year, although a shoot in the first quarter of 2017 sounds more likely.

My love for John Wick is unapologetic and pure. It knows no boundaries. Keanu Reeves‘ 2014 revenge film is a perfectly crafted breath of fresh air, an action film that actually cares about its action, a thriller that takes its time to let you love its characters, and a totally gonzo portrait of a fascinating and fantastical criminal underworld that puts most cinematic world-building to shame. So yes, I’m pumped that professional assassin/criminal boogeyman John Wick is being plucked out of semi-retirement for another bloody adventure where every bullet finds a head and every bone gets a clean breaking. And Reeves certainly seems ready, too.
Thanks to a newly released official synopsis, we now have an idea of what Mr. Wick will be up to in John Wick: Chapter Two. Spoiler alert: he won’t be avenging a murdered puppy this time around.

Watch Footage of Keanu Reeves Preparing For ‘John Wick: Chapter 2’ By Pretty Much Becoming a Real-Life John Wick
Posted on Friday, March 4th, 2016 by Jacob Hall
In addition to being an ageless immortal who will live on long past the rest of us are rotting in the ground, Keanu Reeves is one of the most dedicated actors working these days. Say what you will about his acting (but if you say anything negative, know that you’re wrong), but here is a guy who gives every single performance everything he has. Watch any behind-the-scenes featurette or making-of documentary and you’ll find Mr. Reeves immersing himself in whatever it takes to make his characters come to life.
So if you’re wondering why Reeves was so convincing as an Unstoppable Killing Machine in John Wick, all you have to do is watch footage of him participating in some live ammo training as part of his preparation for John Wick: Chapter Two. Then you’ll realize that Keanu Reeves is an actual Unstoppable Killing Machine. No acting required.

If you enjoyed the first John Wick, as we did, you were very likely sold on John Wick 2 the moment it was announced. Keanu Reeves is set to return, as is co-director Chad Stahelski, and what else do you really need to know before sprinting down to your local box office (or to the online ticketing retailer of your choice) to grab some opening weekend tickets for you and your action-loving friends?
Well, it’d probably help to know the release date, for starters. And also the real title — no, it’s not John Wick 2. And heck, while we’re at it, you surely wouldn’t mind getting a little more information on what the movie’s actually about, either. Fortunately, all of those details are here now for you to enjoy. Go forth to find out when John Wick hits theaters, and exactly where he’ll be when we pick up with him again. Read More »
John Wick 2‘s got a pretty solid cast. Keanu Reeves returns from the first movie, of course, along with Bridget Moynahan, John Leguizamo, and Ian McShane, and Common, Ruby Rose, and Peter Stormare are joining the fray this time as well. And now, as if you needed yet another reason to get excited about the action sequel, it turns out John Wick 2 is also going to be a Matrix mini-reunion.
Hit the jump to learn more about the John Wick 2 Matrix connection. Though we’d warn you of potential spoilers if you’d rather be surprised by what looks like a fun little cameo. Read More »

Keanu Reeves is a pesky detective that just won’t stop digging, asking questions nobody wants the answers to. I wouldn’t be surprised if we hear a line just like that in Reeves’ latest film, Exposed, as the trailer has its fair share of clichéd dialogue. But the familiar film does star Reeves, Ana de Armas (Knock Knock), and Christopher McDonald (The Iron Giant), a trio of actors I’d happily watch in the same movie.
After the jump, watch the Exposed trailer.

The past few years have been kind to Keanu Reeves. Since the disastrous 47 Ronin, the actor has picked up some quality projects. Reeves is currently shooting John Wick 2, and will soon be seen in Exposed. The latter film is without a release date and a distributor, but with Reeves in the starring role, it’ll probably get scooped up soon.
After the jump, watch the foreign trailer for Exposed.

This past summer brought our first look at Nicolas Winding Refn‘s next film, a horror project called The Neon Demon. At the time, the film didn’t have a distributor and we weren’t sure when it would arrive. But today, Amazon Studios has announced acquisition of the film starring Elle Fanning, and they’ve released a new still from the movie as well. So when can you watch it? Read More »
