LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Keanu Reeves will be pulling double duty for his next big screen adventure.
Reeves will star in “Jekyll” — the modern-day remake of the classic split-personality tale “The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.”
Nicolas Winding Refn, who premiered his latest project, “Bronson,” at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, is in negotiations to direct the film.
No details on the film are being made available yet.
Reeves last appeared on the big screen in the sci-fi pic “The Day The Earth Stood Still.” He recently wrapped production on “The Private Lives of Pippa Lee,” a dramedy starring Robin Wright Penn, Julianne Moore, Winona Ryder and Blake Lively.
Other upcoming projects for Reeves include the live-action outer space film “Cowboy Bebop” and “Constantine 2.”
