Keanu's new castmates

05.04.2004

Director Richard Linklater has cast four new actors alongside Keanu Reeves in his adaptation of Philip K. Dick's A SCANNER DARKLY. Winona Ryder, Robert Downey, Jr., Woody Harrelson and Rory Cochran have joined the production to be filmed in live-action then transformed to animation a la WAKING LIFE. The film follows an agent undercover in a drug ring who becomes addicted to the drugs he's trying to stop and develops a split personality with his new junkie self and his former clean-cut government agent. Coincidentally (?) the four new cast members have had their experiences with drugs. Winona Ryder had her prescription drug abuse come to light as a result of her shoplifting charge. Robert Downey, Jr...well you all know that story. Woody Harrelson is a big advocate of hemp and the legalization of marijuana. And Rory Cochran, well he's Slater man! SCANNER will be produced by George Clooney and Steven Soderbergh for Warner Independent Pictures. The film is based on a script by Linklater and not the Charlie Kaufman (ETERNAL SUNSHINE OF THE SPOTLESS MIND) draft you may have seen floating around.
