Keanu Reeves is in talks to star in undercover drama “Cartagena” for 2929 Productions says Production Weekly.
The film centers on an undercover agent in Colombia who gets caught in a complex plot and must elude drug dealers and international agents if he hopes to survive.
The titular northern coastal city has a colorful history featuring wars, robust economic activity and tourist development. It’s familiar to a lot of audiences as the setting for key scenes of the 1980’s adventure thriller “Romancing the Stone”.
Clive Owen was previously attached. Michael Ross (“Turistas,” “Jar City”) penned the screenplay.
