Fans of Keanu Reeves (John Wick) and Winona Ryder (Black Swan, Experimenter) must have been saying a prayer each night, asking for a reunion of the decades-long offscreen friends who haven’t been seen together on screen since The Private Lives of Pippa Lee in 2009. Before that, they starred together in A Scanner Darkly and, quite possibly their most famous pairing, in Francis Ford Coppola’s Bram Stoker’s Dracula (way back in 1992).
