- Sandra Bullock said she regretted doing “Speed 2: Cruise Control”.
- “It’s the one I wish I hadn’t done and no fans showed up,” she said.

Sandra Bullock said she was embarrassed by her 1997 sequel “Speed 2: Cruise Control.”
“It’s the one I wish I hadn’t done and no fans showed up, that I know of,” Bullock said during an interview with digital outlet TooFab alongside Daniel Radcliffe.
The pair star in the upcoming comedy-adventure film ‘The Lost City.’
Bullock went on to say that she didn’t know anyone who “came” and enjoyed the film after seeing it again.
“I’m still embarrassed to be there,” she said. “I’ve been very vocal about it. It doesn’t make sense. Slow boat. Going slow to an island.”
The 1997 film, which starred Bullock alongside Jason Patric, follows the story of Annie (Bullock) and her boyfriend who attempt to stop a Caribbean cruise ship they were vacationing on from s crash into an oil tanker.
Keanu Reeves starred opposite Bullock in the original 1994 film “Speed,” but he didn’t return to reprise his role in the sequel, so Patric’s character was written in instead. During a December 2021 interview on “The Graham Norton Show,” Reeves explained why he turned down a role in “Speed 2: Cruise Control.”
“At the time, I didn’t respond to the script. I really wanted to work with Sandra Bullock, I loved playing Jack Traven, and I loved ‘Speed’, but a liner? I had nothing against the artists involved, but at that time I felt like it wasn’t fair,” he said.
Graham Norton, the show’s host, then joked that in “real life”, Reeves “dodges[ed] a bullet” by refusing to appear in “Speed 2”, which was critically acclaimed when it was released in 1997 and currently holds a 4% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
Earlier this week, Bullock made headlines when she told The New York Times’ Kyle Buchanan that she first met ‘Lost City’ costar Channing Tatum in a manager’s office after that their daughters had a fight at school.
“We met through drama, in the preschool principal’s office. We were called together because Everly and Laila were trying to eliminate each other, and we prayed that this either the other person’s child causing the damage,” Bullock said, adding, “There’s PTSD attached to it.”
