“And I thought that Francis Lawrence, the director, did such amazing work. I loved playing that character, and I really enjoyed the film. I was like, (adopts Oliver Twist voice) ‘Can I please have some more?’”

He added, “I kept asking almost every year. I’d be like, ‘Can I please?’ [and] they’d be like, ‘No, no!’

“So it’s exciting. It’s almost like an open playground that we can hopefully cook something up and play in, and I guess get out of the playground and prepare a meal,” Reeves went on.
