Take it from someone who grew up in the early '90s, Speed
was a formative flick. To me, Keanu Reeves will always be Jack Traven; I'm still skeptical of buses, and I still have to stop myself from saying "pop quiz, hotshot." (Yes, it's a sad life I lead, but the point is Speed
was a BIG DEAL.) I know I wasn't the only one who was totally bummed and confused when the sequel came out three years later and not only was it a pile of hot garbage, but there was no Keanu in it! What the hell?
After Speed 2: Cruise Control
, the franchise needs to be redeemed, and Keanu might finally be ready to do it. Speaking with The Nerdist
, he said "sure" when asked if he'd return to complete the trilogy. Now, this hardly sounds like confirmation that this is a go and he was probably just humoring the interviewer, but that's enough for us to ponder what a Speed 3
would look like, starting with the title. Here are 25 somewhat (read: not at all) serious suggestions. () Speed 3: The SpeediestSpeed 3: Road RageSpeed 3: DUWhy Not?Speed 3: Full Speed Ahead
