Keanu Reeves giving his voice and likeness to Johnny Silverhand makes a potential Cyberpunk 2077 movie more possible, according to franchise creator Mike Pondsmith.
“I can’t really say anything on [movie rights],” Pondsmith told VGC in a recent interview. “But with Keanu Reeves being tied up in things, it’s become much more of a possibility.” He then went on to note how the franchise that has been built up over the past few decades hits a “sweet spot” when it comes to plot and action, which could be very appealing to those who enjoy films.
Will Keanu Reeves Be The Only Star?
According to VGC, Pondsmith simple replied with a “no comment” when asked if any other major actors will be appearing in Cyberpunk 2077. But, of course, there’s always a possibility Keanu won’t be the last announcement.
Video game-to-movie adaptations have never fared too well in the past, but maybe with Keanu involved, who’s now everyone’s favorite, a Cyberpunkmovie actually comes out a good thing.
