Keanu Reeves to Set Sail as Sinbad
Keanu Reeves looks set to follow his role in the forthcoming fantasy 'Constantine' by playing an equally heroic character in the shape of the world's most famous sailor.
'The 8th Voyage of Sinbad' will see Reeves play the titular legend as he embarks on a quest to find the lamp of Aladdin in eighth-century China.
Along the way Sinbad battles all manner of ferocious creatures, while at the same time finding love in the shape of a beautiful empress.
Rob Cohen ('The Fast and the Furious', 'XXX') is in talks to direct the long-gestating project, while scribe Charlie Mitchell is currently rewriting the script.
Meanwhile, Reeves can be seen in award-winning indie drama 'Thumbsucker', animated Philip K Dick adaptation 'A Scanner Darkly', and comic book epic 'Constantine', which hits UK screens at the end of next week.
