Reeves, famous for “The Matrix,” recently starred as the title character in “John Wick: Chapter 2.” He’s involved in several in-progress projects, according to his IMDB page, but there are none listed for Ryder, who’s most recently known for her role in the hit Netflix original “Stranger Things.”
Reeves and Ryder starred together in two previous films — 1992’s “Bram Stoker’s Dracula” and 2006’s “A Scanner Darkly.”
Super fans appear surprised about the shoot, because they had no idea which film Reeves is making right now, according to social media posts.
