Keanu Reeves Articles and Interviews Archive


street kings. the day the earth stood still.

I took over and started adding to this archive in early November 2008, which included most of the articles about The Day the Earth Stood Still – the first film I covered within Keanu fandom. It was exciting, albeit often an agonising and tedious ordeal, with multiple new articles coming in every day. There was also some hype over the film Chef, whose script Keanu had a hand in writing. Unfortunately, a few years later it was given to another production company, and after some rewriting became the movie Burnt, starring Bradley Cooper.

As 2008 drew to a close, Keanu was cleared of all charges in the paparazzo hit-and-run case, aided by the help of Silva's photos that contradicted his own testimony.
