Reeves Replaces Owen In “Cartagena”

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.
