Fresh off the success of John Wick which opened in second place at the box office this weekend, Keanu Reeves is set to star in the science-fiction thriller, Replicas, Variety reports.
Lorenzo di Bonaventura, producer for the upcoming film, stated that he’s excited to work with Reeves again.
“From my experience working with Keanu on ‘The Matrix’ franchise through our collaboration on ‘Constantine,’ I have always been impressed by Keanu’s ability to bring a genuine level of humanity to the sci-fi genre through his performance," Bonaventura said. "I am looking forward to collaborating with Keanu once again on this unique take on what lengths a person will go to alter the past, and the implications of those actions.”
In the film Reeves will portray a neuroscientist whose family is killed in a traffic accident and will stop at nothing to bring them back — pitting himself against a government-controlled laboratory, a police task force and the physical laws of science.
Tanya Weller is slated to direct the film.
