Speaking with Destructoid, Miles Tost, the senior designer for the Cyberpunk 2077 project, opened up about the company’s decision to go for Keanu Reeves. Tost confirmed the officials wanted no one else other than Keanu for the job. It sounds as if the studio had no other option left except the handsome actor. “It was either him or no one,” said Toss, ”That was our mindset. We didn’t think ‘We need a star for this role,’ but rather ‘Hey, he might be the perfect character’ and luckily I guess it all worked out for us.”
What led Keanu to agree to the offer?
However, one might wonder what forced or inspired the A-list Hollywood actor like Keanu to play a video game character. The senior designer might have an answer to the question as he said, “I’m just speculating, but he might’ve seen the similarities that we saw between him and [Johnny Silverhand] and that might’ve been attracted to him. Besides, Johnny Silverhand, lead singer of the Samurai band, and one of the big rebels of the Cyberpunk universe. A legend. It sounds like a story that might be interesting to someone like Keanu.”
While On the other hand, the recently released photos show the animated version of the star actor in outerwear which is getting popular as Keanu Reeves Cyberpunk 2077 Johnny Silverhand Vest and is heading towards becoming a trend on the internet. Moreover, the pictures can get you an insight into the theme of the game which is claimed to require a massive 80 Gigabyte space to install.
