Actor Keanu Reeves has explained why he turned down the opportunity to star in Speed 2

In a new interview on The Graham Norton Show, Reeves explained why he declined a role in the 1997 sequel to Speed, despite staring in the original.

“At the time I didn’t respond to the script. I really wanted to work with Sandra Bullock, I loved playing Jack Traven, and I loved Speed, but an ocean liner?”, he said.

“I had nothing against the artists involved, but at that time I had the feeling it just wasn’t right,” he added.
