“I think we thought it was gonna be Keanu Reeves initially, but he was tied up with John Wick and that’s where we were like, ‘Brad was always our first choice,’ but we didn’t think it was gonna happen,” Adam shared with Screen Rant. “Then [Sandra] did Bullet Train and it came together. And I love Keanu, he would’ve been fun too.”

Adam went on to add that Brad and Sandra‘s shared hairdresser was the one that ultimately convinced Brad to take the part.
