Halle Berry Reveals She ‘Stupidly’ Turned Down Sandra Bullock’s ‘Speed’ Role

Berry recently revealed she turned down the opportunity to work with current co-star Keanu Reeves on 1994 action flick, ‘Speed.’

Halle Berry at the Essence Black Women in Hollywood Luncheon held at the Beverly Hills Hotel in Beverly Hills, USA on February 19, 2009. /HOLLYWOOD, CA, USA - OCTOBER 26, 2015: Sandra Bullock at the Los Angeles premiere of 'Our Brand Is Crisis' held at the TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood.

John Wick 3 star Halle Berry said recently that she turned down the opportunity to work with co-star Keanu Reeves in the 1994 action flick Speed.

The Oscar winner explained to ET Online why she made her decision.

“I don’t know if you know this, but I was offered Speed before Sandra Bullock. I stupidly said no,” Berry said. “But in my defense, when I read the script, the bus didn’t leave the parking lot.”

The film follows the story of passengers on a Los Angeles bus after a terrorist plants a bomb that will detonate if it the vehicle is driven below a certain speed.

“I was like, ‘No, no, no, no,'” she said. “Then, I see the movie and I’m like, ‘Arrrrghh!'”

Berry confirmed that she turned down the role before Reeves was involved and that the draft she received needed several rewrites to bring it up to par.

 “They were offering me the parking lot version,” she joked.
