Keanu Reeves will star in the romantic thriller “Siberia” from director Matthew Ross.
IM Global is launching international sales at the European Film Market at the Berlin Film Festival. Producers are Gabriela Bacher and “Passengers” producer Stephen Hamel.
Filming is set to start later this year. Ross, who made his directorial debut with “Frank & Lola,” is helming from a script by Scott Smith.
Reeves will portray an American diamond trader trying to sell blue diamonds of dubious origin to buyers in Russia, where the jewels and his partner disappear. He then journeys to Siberia and begins an affair with a cafe owner.
Reeves stars in the upcoming actioner “John Wick: Chapter 2,” which Lionsgate opens on Feb. 10. Laurence Fishburne also stars in the film, marking their first on-screen reunion since the “The Matrix” trilogy.
He’s also in Marti Noxon’s anorexia drama “To the Bone,” which premiered at Sundance and sold to Netflix.
Ross wrote and directed “Frank & Lola,” starring Michael Shannon and Imogen Poots. The film premiered at Sundance last year and was released through Universal.
Reeves and Ross are repped by WME, while Ross is managed by MGMT.

Keanu Reeves Heading To ‘Siberia’ With ‘Frank & Lola’ Director Matthew Ross – Berlin
by Diana Lodderhose
February 1, 2017 10:55am
Keanu Reeves is in advanced negotiations to star in the romantic-thriller Siberia, directed by Matthew Ross. Hamel and Reeves of Company Films and Gabriela Bacher of Summerstorm/Film House Germany are producing the film. Scott B. Smith (A Simple Plan) writes the script based on a treatment by Stephen Hamel.
IM Global is handling international sales for the title with WME Global repping domestic. It will be launched to buyers at the European Film Market in Berlin next week.
Story follows an American diamond merchant, who travels to Russia to sell rare blue diamonds of questionable origin. As the deal begins to collapse he falls into an obsessive relationship with a Russian cafe owner in a small Siberian town. As their passion builds, so does the treacherous world of the diamond trade from which he is unable to extricate himself. Both collide as the American man desperately looks for escape in a world with no exit.
IM Global’s SVP, Acquisitions and Co-Productions, John Zois, negotiated the deal on behalf of IM Global.
Reeves starred alongside Lily Collins in Marti Noxon’s To the Bone, a drama that premiered in Sundance’s U.S. Dramatic section last month and sold to Netflix for $8 million. He’s in John Wick 2, which opens February 10, and is attached to upcoming title Chinese road movie Rally Car with Olivier Megaton.
Ross is the writer-director behind Frank & Lola, starring Michael Shannon and Imogen Poots. The film, which marked his directorial debut, premiered to critical acclaim at Sundance 2016 and was released through Universal.
IM Global is also headed into EFM with sexy noir Serenity, written and directed by Steven Knight with Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway in negotiations to star.
Reeves and Ross are repped by WME and Ross is managed by MGMT.

Skene has worked with the likes of Michael Fassbender, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Paul Walker and, more recently, Keanu Reeves. Reeves in fact does many of his own stunts.
"He acts just exactly like a stuntman," Skene said of Reeves. "He kind of works through it point by point and doesn't really mess around and gets it done right and efficient."
