LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Sandra Bullock and Keanu Reeves, the iconic duo from the 1994 hit film 'Speed', are hinting at a potential reunion for 'Speed 3'.

In a recent podcast episode of '50 MPH', dedicated to discussions about the film 'Speed', Bullock expressed her desire to work with Reeves again, calling it a bucket list item.

"Before I die, before I leave this planet, I do think that Keanu and I need to do something in front of the camera," she said. "Are we, you know, in wheelchairs or with walkers? Maybe. Are we on little scooters at Disneyland?"

Reeves enthusiastically embraced the idea, acknowledging the allure of collaborating once more. "It does feel like there is a siren call to it," he remarked. "I think I would love to work with you again before our eyes close. We'd freakin' knock it out of the park."

"We had an affection," the 'John Wick' star continued. "And the characters themselves have an affection. I think Jack and Annie's is different than Sandra's and Keanu's, but I think we played off each other and I think it was just fun. I think, also, we kind of trusted each other, right?"

Bullock echoed Reeves' sentiment, expressing that she "felt very comfortable" with him.

"People have full-blown affairs in movies, and you don't feel something between them. And then people can hate each other in movies and you go, 'That was electric,' you know? We didn't really look at each other in this movie except for maybe three or four times, because we were constantly battling the elements. And I think that’s what made it so electric, too, is that, watching it, I guess you want them to connect," Bullock recalled of her time working with Reeves.

"That was a really clever setup, to sort of keep people apart. Foreplay, I guess. But I felt very comfortable with Keanu. There was nothing that I couldn't try or do or say that he wouldn't have, I felt, fought for me to do or say or try, and that kind of trust is very rare with actors. Anytime I threw something his way, he swatted it right back and you just go, 'OK, there's my partner," she added.

Three years after the release of the Jan de Bont film, Bullock starred in the sequel 'Speed 2: Cruise Control', but without Reeves, though they'd later reunite on 'The Lake House' in 2006. 'Cruise Control' barely made back its budget and was savaged by critics. There was no discussion about the sequel on the podcast episode; however, Bullock has spoken out before about her interest to partake in the sequel.

"I have one (a sequel) no one came around to and I'm still embarrassed I was in," Bullock told TooFab exclusively in 2022. "It's called 'Speed 2.' I've been very vocal about it. Makes no sense. Slow boat. Slowly going towards an island."

In the film, Bullock's character and her new beau are tasked with slowing down a hijacked cruise ship before it crashes. It then slams into the island of Saint Martin, destroying the marina.

"That's one I wished I hadn't done and no fans came around, that I know of, except for you," added Bullock, after the reporter said they didn't hate it at the time.

The actress has famously avoided sequels to her major successes. After the lukewarm receptions to the sequels 'Speed 2: Cruise Control' and 'Miss Congeniality 2: Armed and Fabulous', Bullock has approached sequels with caution. However, 'Armed and Fabulous' performed marginally better than 'Cruise Control'; despite critical backlash, it found commercial success.
