Reeves was asked about Reddick by multiple outlets to which he responded emotionally.

He told Deadline Hollywood:

"Lance was a beautiful person, [a] special artist, a man of grace and dignity, and such a passion for his craft."
"And to have the chance to work with him over 10 years and four films is something that is very special to me and it f**king sucks he's not here."

"Lance is a people person, a special artist, a gentleman of grace and dignity."
"It's just really something special, every time he stepped on set, to watch the passion he had for his work."
