The return of Keanu Reeves to the genre of sci-fi movies has delighted the fandom in every possible way who have welcomed his inevitable success in the specialized field. On the other hand, if we look back at the actor’s journey, it cant be credited to the particular genre who has experienced multiple categories. To begin with, his role as Theodore “Ted” Logan in the Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure has earned him a different milestone long back in 1989. Then, his character of Neo in The Matrix after 10 years marked the advent of a new beginning.
Welcoming the return
Following his portrayal of Klaatu in the remake of The Day the Earth Stood Still(2008), Reeves took a major break of ten years in the sci-fi genre. Warner Bros. studios decided to cast the star in his signature role at a time when his action movie career was soaring high above benchmarks and the outcome flourished the production of John Wick series.
Expansion to other genres
To be honest, while most of us might not have wondered about his departure from the sci-fi genre, his movement can be accounted for the fading of his commercial feasibility as an actor during the period. Cut to that time, he abstained from big-budget films and rather focused on smaller ones like The Private Lives of Pippa Lee and The Neon Demon. With the due course, Reeves carved his directing debut in the martial arts movie, Man of Tai Chi(2013).
Counting to date
Six years back, the fleeting success of John Wick had again propelled Reeves to work in a better number of mainstream films embracing his comeback to the sci-fi variety. The rest is already implied in the upcoming days as we continue to expect the tentative release of The Matrix 4 to the soonest!
