‘I took over the role from Keanu,’ the actor reveals.
Popular actor Keanu Reeves could have appeared in Fast X. Alan Richeson, who appears in the film, revealed.
Alan appears in the film as Ames, the new leader of the Agency, an organisation that hunts down Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) and his associates.
He said in a new interview with Entertainment Weekly magazine that he took over the role from Keanu, who was initially touted as the antagonist. ‘I was working on the film in the freezing cold of Winnipeg with Hilary Swank, and I got a call that Keanu Reeves had changed his plans. It was a big deal.”
Keanu has appeared in many hit films, including the John Wick series, so if Keanu had been in the film, there would have been many more highlights.
In his latest film, Fast X, he will face Dante (Jason Momoa), the most evil villain in the series’ history. The film also sees the return of Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham) to the series in earnest, as well as Brie Larson, who professes to be a big fan of the Wild Speed series.
Wild Speed is in cinemas now.
