Talking with Collider at the Toronto International Film Festival, actor Keanu Reeves gave some updates on the various projects he’s been linked with in recent times. Here’s the basic breakdown.
The samurai epic “47 Ronin” sounds like it’ll be going quite soon with Carl Rinsch still attached to direct. Reeves says “they’ve done pre-production, we’re still working on the script, they’re done pre-viz, and they’re doing location scouting. it’s ready to go.”
The “Cowboy Bebop” anime adaptation is essentially dead due to the large budget required. Reeves says “I haven’t heard anything back. They turned in the script and it was very expensive. I don’t know if they’re going to… it would cost, like, half a billion dollars to make that script. So, I don’t know where it’s at right now.”
He’s currently involved in the Mark L. Mann-directed indie drama “Generation Um… ” which follows a 24 hour period in the lives of three people. “You follow this character named John. it’s basically the relationship between him and two call girls. He’s the driver and he ends up stealing a video camera and hanging with them in an apartment. it’s kind of about the interpersonal dynamics of this family” says Reeves.
He’s also involved in two possible rom-coms – “It’s Not Me It’s You” penned by Marc Hyman (“Meet the Fockers”), and the psychics in love feature “Psyched” penned by Kristin Gore (“Nailed”).
