7 Filmmakers Share Their Favorite Keanu Reeves Stories

For three decades now, audiences have been falling in love over and over again with Keanu Reeves. We believe him when he’s saving the world, we believe him when he’s morally ambiguous, and in a few cases, we even believe when he’s the villain. He’s an actor who can transform himself, even when he remains so distinctly, well, Keanu Reeves.

Reeves continues to evolve with the times and only sharpens his skills. What’s not to love about an actor whose movies have blown minds repeatedly as his magnetism and depth deepen with time? Any artist at the stage of Reeves’ career and success who continues growing is doing something right. What has remained from the early days of his acting career is his sincerity and commitment. That sincerity, in particular, is infectious and a part of why audiences and filmmakers remain captivated by him.

With Bill & Ted Face the Music now in theaters and available on VOD, we interviewed directors who’ve worked with Reeves and asked them to share their favorite stories from their collaboration. Here’s what Richard LinklaterChristopher Kenneally, Matthew RossChad Stahelski, Dean Parisot, Francis Lawrence, and Rebecca Miller had to say about their time with the one and only Keanu Reeves.

Whatever obstacles came in the way of the sequel, director Dean Parisot and everyone involved kept going. Parisot, known most famously for the classic Galaxy Quest, delivered a pure sequel with its heart in such the right place.
