“After the second, third, and fourth film, making these movies is so exhausting and it destroys Keanu, bodily and emotionally. By the end, he is at all times like, ‘I can not do that once more,’ and we agree with him.

“The man is only a shell of himself as a result of he simply goes off and goes for it. He was like, ‘I would like to be definitively killed at the end of this film.’ We had been like, ‘You know, we’ll go away a ten per cent little opening’,” the producer mentioned.
