Keanu Reeves is in talks to star in Tarsem Singh‘s action-thriller “The Panopticon,” which is set up at Good Universe, multiple individuals familiar with the project have told TheWrap.
Good Universe had no comment, and one insider cautioned that there's no official deal in place, as negotiations are in a sensitive stage.
“The Panopticon” follows a seemingly ordinary man who receives a mysterious package containing a pre-recorded message from himself, warning that the world is about to end and only he can save it. He must race against the clock to piece together the puzzle before time runs out for mankind.
Andrew Lazar will produce the Craig Rosenberg-scripted film that will be executive produced by Nathan Kahane and Joe Drake of Good Universe, which is also handling international sales.
Reeves is coming off strong reviews for his revenge thriller “John Wick,” which fared well at the box office. He recently wrapped Eli Roth‘s “Knock Knock” and the courtroom drama “The Whole Truth,” and he's currently filming the indie “Daughter of God.” Reeves is also attached to star in Tanya Wexler's “Replicas” and Brian Kirk's “Passengers.” He's represented by CAA and Ziffren, Brittenham.
