Death Stranding Almost Had Keanu Reeves In A Starring Role
Although San Diego Comic-Con 2019 has come to a close, the event provided many updates for many upcoming media projects. Gamers were eager to see if any of their most anticipated games would have any updates at the con. Two big projects that gamers are looking forward to are Cyberpunk 2077 and Death Stranding. Both games share similar realistic visuals, science fiction themes and big name celebrities. Cyberpunk especially excited fans with the revelation that Keanu Reeves would be in the game, and now Hideo Kojima has revealed that Reeves nearly played a crucial Death Stranding role.
As reported by Wccftech, the legendary Hideo Kojima appeared at a “Master Storyteller” panel at San Diego Comic Con this past weekend. Kojima talked about his long career, with the big focus being on his upcoming game Death Stranding. One interesting tidbit that Kojima decided to reveal during the panel is that Keanu Reeves nearly starred in the game. Kojima says during the panel that he received Keanu Reeves as a suggested casting choice for the character Cliff, but that he really wanted Mads Mikkelsen for the role instead.
As fans know, Mikkelsen did ultimately receive the role, and his passionate bromance with Kojima has been frequently seen on social media. Still, it would have been interesting to see Keanu in Kojima’s collection of famous friends and collaborators. At least we have Keanu’s appearance as Johnny Silverhand to satisfy us. Death Stranding may not feature Keanu Reeves, but it very likely will still be breathtaking.
