Look, I don’t write these headlines! Actually I do, I write everything on here.
According to Deadline, Keanu Reeves is in talks to star in a vigilante superhero movie.
His first superhero film – or alternatively his seventh, if like me you include both Bill & Teds, Constantine, John Wick 1 and John Wick 2. And one Matrix.
Past Midnight, presumably named as that’s the time when we all lie awake dreaming of being the new Mr or Mrs Reeves, is a Netflix film to be directed by Rick Famuyiwa.
Hopefully Keanu’s super-weapon (no sniggering please) will run to more than a couple of pencils, though “I’m thinking I’m BACK!” in a speech bubble followed by a couple of BAM! CRASH! KAPOWs would work.
And I hope they give him the maddest costume; he’ll make anything look cool, so they might as well make the most of it.
Reeves’ next film out this year is cloning scifi movie Replicas, which is released in the summer.
