On the set of his most recent movie, Keanu Reeves was spotted using crutches to walk. During a break on the set of their new film “Good Fortune”, which stars Seth Rogen, the 59-year-old actor also had an ice pack applied to his knee on Thursday.
On the Los Angeles set, Reeves was seen walking on crutches as Rogen was busy on his phone. Reeves wore a green tie, a white button-down shirt, grey pants, and a beige trench coat.
A request for an official statement from the actor on Thursday was not immediately answered by representatives of director Reeves or the film’s studio, Lionsgate.
In Good Fortune, Aziz Ansari is directing and co-starring with Reeves, Rogen, and Keke Palmer. The premise of the comedy flick is yet unknown.
The movie was announced in April of 2023. “We have indeed found good fortune with this film,” Lionsgate Motion Picture Group Chair Joe Drake stated at the time in a statement to Deadline.
“We adore the screenplay and have great faith in Aziz’s abilities as a filmmaker and actor. This might be a great movie for us, especially with Seth and Keanu two amazing, international talents starring with Aziz,” Drake went on.
However, “As soon as this project became available, we moved quickly to land it.”
The Hollywood Reporter stated that May production was halted owing to the writers’ strike shortly after the announcement.
Palmer, 30, and her co-stars gave fans a behind-the-scenes peek on Tuesday. The Emmy winner published two selfies on social media: one with Rogen and the other with Reeves and Ansari, 40.
On the set of our movie “Good Fortune,” I’m having a great time with these incredible people. We had a pool scene today that evolved into a true pool party, lol! When Palmer and Aziz work together, unplanned things always happen,” Palmer said in the Instagram post’s caption.
Along with sharing the special announcement, he mentioned that the book would likely be published in July on Good Morning America. The comic book series BRZRKR, which the John Wick actor co-wrote with artist Ron Garney and co-writer Matt Kindt and published in 2021, served as the basis for the book.
