Good news for fans of the name Keanu – not only is there a film called Keanu coming out this summer, but sounds like it will feature the dulcet tones of the world’s most famous Keanu in the shape of Keanu Reeves.

When we recently asked Reeves about the movie - which revolves around the hunt for a stolen kitten -he said "I'm curious about the title" before adding "I recently did a voiceover for the project - it's about a cat, though it's actually not about the cat. There's a cat named Keanu in it, and so I did a little bit for that."

As for his thoughts on the film's stars Jordan Peele and Keegan-Michael Key, Reeves said: "They're lovely comedians - I really enjoy their work. I haven't seen the picture - I think it's still coming together. But definitely reading it and seeing what it was about, it's kind of a heartwarming story about being better."

The movie buff angle is also partially responsible for the decision to name the titular kitten Keanu. That, and it's just funny. "Keanu is one of those names - it's funny because it only belongs to one person. Any name like that, like Sigourney or fucking Joaquin, is automatically funny to me," Peele explained. "He's the leading man. He's the Hollywood kitten. He's the hero. He's the one. So that's why Keanu was chosen, ultimately."

Of course, in the case of Keanu, "leading man" really means "a bunch of leading furbabies," as there are many Keanus, each trained for a specific task. "Not only do we direct cats, we direct different cats to do different things," Key explained. Indeed, there were cats trained to run from point A to point B, cats trained to scratch at ropes, and cats trained to cuddle all day, every day. "The cat who seems to have won out the most was the one who's allowed to sit in Method Man's arms and sleep," said Key, "There's a cat that's been trained to sit in Method Man's arms and cuddle." (For the record, yes, I met one of the Keanu kittens, and yes, it was so cute I almost passed out.)

Indeed, they had to bring in a second set of kittens because the first litter was getting too big midway through production. "I made a lovely pair of boots out of the first set of cats," joked Atencio, who moved his own cat out to New Orleans for the shoot. "I can't hang out with cats all day and not have my cat when I go home. That would be weird."

"Cuteness was definitely the biggest priority," says director Peter Atencio, who held a kitten audition in New Orleans

Does the film ever explain why the cat is named after Keanu Reeves?

Not really. We didn't want it to be something where you're just kind of waiting for the big Keanu payoff, which is why it's cool that he's involved in this way - it's a subtle way of acknowledging that of course he's the direct inspiration for that name. The cat was named after him as an act of love for his movies, and especially the kind of movies that he makes. He has become an iconic movie star on a level that most people don't ever attain.

"For the record, we did have to tell Keanu (Reeves), 'Can you do it a little more Keanu-y? Keanu Reeves it up!' And he did."
