Aziz Ansari (41) said that Reeves was "such a trooper" following the injury, noting that "he still filmed everything except some scenes where he needed him to do salsa dancing, which we need to pick up."



"He was like, 'I'll do it!' We're like, 'Keanu, calm down. We'll do the salsa dancing once your knee's healed,' " recalled Ansari.

Moreover, he noted that Keanu Reeves (59) has done some extreme stunts without ever needing "to go to the hospital or anything."

"He's done those Wick movies, all the Matrix stuff. In Speed, he actually did attempt to do the jump from the car to the bus. It wasn't the take they used, but he did do it," Ansari said.



The announcement of the film project Good Fortune

Back in April 2023, Good Fortune was first announced. Lionsgate Motion Picture Group Chair Joe Drake told Deadline that they "moved quickly to land this project once it was available.”

And when you add in Seth and Keanu – two incredible world-class talents — toplining alongside Aziz, this has the potential to be a very special film for us."

Currently, Good Fortune is in production and happening in Los Angeles, U.S.A., per IMDb.
