Keanu Reeves was considered for Brad Pitt’s role in “The Lost City,” the film’s directors have revealed.
When directors Adam and Aaron Nee spoke with Screen Rant about Pitt’s role in the film, the duo shared that they were uncertain if they would be able to cast Pitt and had other stars in mind, including Reeves.
“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,'” Adam shared with the outlet.

“But we didn’t have to survive anything. We just get to grow up together on parallel roads and tip our hats and meet for a dinner and try to work together. And the longer time goes on, the more in awe I am of the human being. Would I have been able to say that if he had dumped me and made me angry? Probably not.”
