Reeves a Watchman?

02.21.2007

Before you Alan Moore fanboys get your tighty whiteys in a twist, Keanu Reeves won't be starring as Dr. Manhattan in THE WATCHMEN. Reeves has though signed on to star in the upcoming crime drama THE NIGHT WATCHMEN. The film, to be directed by David Ayer (HARSH TIMES) with a script by James Ellroy, follows a homicide cop in the wake of the OJ Simpson verdict who finds he no longer has what it takes. WATCHMAN has been floating around Hollywood for many years now with Spike Lee and Oliver Stone at different points flirting with the project. Paramount recently put the project in turnaround where Fox Searchlight picked it up and brought in Ayer to direct. Reeves hasn't been doing much since THE LAKE HOUSE and will begin production on WATCHMAN this April in LA.

Extra Tidbit: This movie should not be confused with NIGHT WATCH, NIGHTWATCH, The Night Watch or the watch man.
