Some time recently Speed 2: Journey Control murdered the establishment, the primary movie's essayist pitched a continuation that afterward got to be a Morgan Freeman activity film.
The initial concept for Speed 2 was changed into a overlooked activity motion picture featuring Morgan Freeman and Christian Slater. Speed was discharged in 1994, and was the most recent in a line of activity motion pictures that connected the Kick the bucket Difficult equation to a interesting area. In this case, the story included a transport that couldn't drop underneath a certain speed or it would detonate. Speed got to be a shock crush, which cemented Keanu Reeves' fame additionally acted as Sandra Bullock's breakthrough. In spite of not setting up a continuation, Speed 2: Voyage Control - which Keanu passed on - arrived in 1997; it was welcomed with awful reviews and was a box office flop.
The foremost taunted component of Speed 2 was its setting, which was utilized at executive Jan de Bont's request. Speed's unique author Graham Yost afterward reviewed to Script Separated his unique continuation pitch. Titled The Surge, this saw Keanu and Bullock's characters going on get-away within the Midwest - as it were to urge included in a heist in a overwhelmed town. When this was rejected, it was modified as Difficult Rain, where Slater's character is chased by Freeman's cheats in a flooding town so they can recover a few covered up cash. Difficult Rain is an engaging activity flick that's generally overlooked, but it's conceivable to see the seeds of Speed 2 in it.
The Other Rejected Speed Sequels
One reason The Surge was rejected was its need of association to the primary Keanu Reeves motion picture - specifically, the truth speed itself was missing. Yost - who didn't conclusion up working on Speed 2 - prepped two other potential thoughts. The primary was titled Tall Speed and was set on an plane. Agreeing to Yost it included “... another terrible fellow and you can’t drop underneath 10,000 ft, and you’re running out of fuel and you’re headed into the Andes." High Speed exceptionally much re-used the outline of the first but may have been rejected as Traveler 57 had as of now done Kick the bucket Difficult on a Plane.
Yost's moment pitch moreover took the establishment onto the water, but Full Speed sounds way more seriously than Journey Control. Says the essayist, "Full Speed was aiming to be transporting weapons left over from the Vietnam War on a vessel within the Pacific Sea and they hit a storm. But they find out it’s got phosphorus in it and in case water hits it, it’s aiming to blow up.” This interchange concept was Speed blended with The Compensation Of Fear, and whereas it would have been difficult to fit Keanu or Sandra's characters, it may have made for a suspenseful activity thriller.
Will Speed 3 With Keanu Reeves & Sandra Bullock Happen?
Taking after his comeback with John Wick, Keanu has returned to numerous of his most popular establishments, counting Charge & Ted and The Framework motion pictures. He's controlled clear of a Speed return, as has Bullock, who has destroyed Journey Control regularly within the decades since. Concurring to Yost, he and producers met with Keanu within the early 2010s to reflect a potential Speed 3, but the on-screen character was to a great extent uninterested. To Yost, there was a sense that Speed 2 had genuinely slaughtered intrigued in future motion pictures, which it was probably best not to return.
