Keanu decides to go 'Fishing'

Before he heads off to shoot two sequels to "The Matrix," Keanu Reeves wants to squeeze in a couple of smaller films, according to Variety.

Reeves is expected in Australia next fall for a 250-day shoot on back-to-back "Matrix" sequels, for which he will reportedly be paid $30 million plus 15% of the gross.

But before he immerses himself in that high-tech world, Reeves will play a stockbroker whose life takes a tragic turn after he tries to help a Russian prostitute. "Fishing For Moonlight" is a true story based on a London Times article about the hooker's would-be saviour, who eventually becomes involved with the Russian Mafia.

Variety said Reeves recently completed a football comedy called "The Replacements" and is also hoping to squeeze in a remake of the 1968 romance "Sweet November" before his duties in "The Matrix."

 Anyone know why this movie got canned? Lack of time, perhaps? I never read much about it.
