it's this, apparently
http://deadline.com/2017/03/keanu-reeves-isla-fisher-movie-the-starling-dome-karukoski-tom-of-finland-1202017450/

http://wegotthiscovered.com/movies/isla-fisher-and-keanu-reeves-to-play-a-married-couple-for-the-starling/

and I guess it needs its own thread.

maybe it's a coincidence, maybe it's a version of that internet wisdom "When you can tell your story and it doesn't make you cry, you know you have healed.". but I don't believe in coincidences...
anyway apparently the script was written a while ago, so it's not a commissoned story...
Only he knows.

John Wick is in the habit of fighting strong women and Charlize would just be perfect as a member of the high table!

https://www.wprost.pl/tylko-u-nas/10046130/Keanu-Reeves-czyli-facet-w-czerni.html

translation: Google - only a part of an article is available

Keanu Reeves, a man in black

- I love his passion, his sadness and struggle with suffering - says Keanu Reeves about a played hero, "John Wick 2," but immediately adds: - He is really a bastard, and everyone who destroys his peace risks a lot. Wick has character and I like it.

Trilogy "The Matrix" made him one of the biggest stars in the history of cinema. That's right, 52-year-old Reeves is a star. He has a unique way of being that most celebrities have already lost. It's a combination of sensitivity and charm. He remains a favorite of women, however, prefer to spend time with his friends - surfing or riding a motorcycle.

He took a few mediocre films as "Little Buddha", "Dracula" or "Sweet November". However, he also played Hamlet. As well as he finds himdelf in the comedy class B "Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure" and the ambitious drama "My Own Private Idaho."

"John Wick 1" was very popular. Reeves tells us why he wanted to play again the hero, which was associated with the risk of losing position, which he won. The actor has repeatedly put his career at stake (edge?). A considerable attempt was a long waiting period after "the Matrix".

That's really REALLY creepy.

OK, so here's some free advice to those seeking support for what is clearly a good and important cause: don't try to blackmail or shame a celebrity into "dating" you.

"He's not on social media so we have to make it viral"

No, you don't.
Find a legitimate contact, get in touch with his publicist, and do it QUIETLY. If you succeed through legitimate channels, great. You can let people know at that point if he wants you to do so.
BUT
"I tried to get in touch with Keanu! but I couldn't! or he said NO!"
is, ahem, NOT COOL.

She sounds like a lunatic stalker. Very unfortunate for her to be the "face" of such a serious issue.

Yeah; and chances are that she would have had a much better chance of him agreeing if she had tried to contact him privately rather than putting him in the spotlight.

"Keanu Reeves is Kinda Crazy":
https://youtu.be/lg3onFxzKnY

JoBlo did a video including a 7m 40s long poem on Keanu's life. The movie clips alternate between cringeworthy and awesome.

They have photos I've never seen before and trivia I didn't know. I have no idea where they got that stuff.

well, in preparation of my stay in hospital starting 11-April (just a few days, but I'm already dying of boredom) I've just ordered this GQ magazine. I hope it helps to kill the time :-)

Casting the movie was tricky. Ideally, the actors playing the leads, Sidney Deane and Billy Hoyle, could sell tickets and be convincing ballplayers. Denzel Washington and Keanu Reeves were initially discussed for the parts but it didn't work out - Denzel was committed to Malcolm X and Reeves was about as graceful on the court as Reggie Evans on bath salts.

...

Cylk Cozart: Denzel told me about it [on the] Ricochet set. He said, "A script came down the pipe called White Men Can't Jump. But I'm not doing that. I'm playing Malcolm next. It's perfect for you, though." He told Ron about me. We had the audition process and all of a sudden, I see my name go up the ladder. There was [Laurence] Fishburne and this guy named Wesley Snipes."

...

Thomas: CAA was pushing Keanu Reeves.

Lester: The studio was very enthusiastic about that prospect.

Shelton: He wasn't athletic enough. We worked with him for days. He worked hard. He was a really nice guy. I think he wouldn't have been convincing on the court because we had a lot of real basketball players out there.

Cozart: Keanu almost broke my neck going up for a layup. He was so wild. He was throwing the ball hard and throwing elbows. He didn't know what he was doing. Ron stopped it, like, "OK, I've seen enough." I thought, Wow, what was he doing growing up? He didn't play ball? Ron also went to Chicago to meet with John Cusack.

... Shelton: In those days, you got to test different actors and have them go in together. Now, you kind of have to go in blind. I put Woody and a couple of people he was up against — whose names I won't mention — each in a room with Wesley, and Wesley blew the other guys off the map. Woody didn't try to out-Wesley Wesley. He just countered. I was convinced immediately that it was a perfect piece of casting, and it was.

Wesley Snipes: [Keanu] would improvise and say something where there would be a natural response from me, and I just left him out there like dirty laundry.

Harrelson: I just remember being so happy to see Wesley and feeling, This could work. I think it helped a lot that we knew each other already. [Wesley and I] really got along good during Wildcats.


I haven't seen this movie, but:

1. wtf, Wesley Snipes? >:(

2. how did they think Keanu would be a good fit for a role where being white is the whole point of the character and in the actual title

3. Laurence Fishburne! he totally needs to do a comedy with Keanu one day :D

4. Wildcats. I like how real life makes Speed references.

5. Keanu was playing hockey growing up, that's what he was doing.
