Speaking to Screenrant, Morgan admitted: “I sat down with [Keanu Reeves] and we’re talking about it,

“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.”

I don’t know about you but I’d totally be up for Keanu Reeves in Fast and Furious!

The suggestion comes as fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe clamour for Reeves to join the franchise. His inclusion in the superhero movies has been teased for a while now, with Marvel execs making no secret of eyeing-up the high profile actor for a future role.

For now though it seems Mr. John Wick has his plate full, as it was recently confirmed that Keanu Reeves will be returning as Neo for a fourth time for the next chapter of The Matrix movies. He will be joined by Carrie-Ann Moss, who will reprise her role as Trinity.
