Actual Keanu news!

This picture has nothing to do with the story, I just like it a lot.

Wowsers, I woke up today and my inboxes were overflowing and all abuzz with news of three, count 'em, THREE movies that Keanu has signed on for in 2003.

(from Yahoo)
Keanu Reeves will fill out a love triangle with Jack Nicholson and Diane Keaton in an untitled comedy that marks one of three films he will shoot next year. Reeves will also star in 'Thumbsucker,' an indie adaptation of the Walter Kirn novel, and then move on to the previously announced 'Constantine,' the adaptation of the DC-Vertigo comic 'Hellblazer' at Warner Bros.

So, are we sure now that the Constantine is the Hellblazer story? Freaking Variety got me all confused last week. I hope that they were just wrong and that Keanu is going to play that right bastard, John Constantine, and not the religious historical figure. Because you know we're going to have dirty thoughts about him, and that's a little icky.

I don't have much to say about the Thumbsucker one, but I just ordered the book it's based on. According to IMDB, Elijah Wood is cast as the lead, so we can kiss our oral fixated Keanu fantasy goodbye. It's an indie so it's bound to be my favorite of the three. I know I'll like it more than the untitled Nicholson/Keaton film. I'm not a big romantic comedy fan. I know that lots of fans are and are extremely excited about it, though. It's the older woman thing. I'm happy he's getting to work with Jack.

Here's a couple links to the stories at Yahoo:
"Reeves Joins Nicholson, Keaton in Triangle"
"Dr. Reeves treats Meyers-helmed comedy for [Columbia Pictures]"

And there's some matrix stuff over at Film Force, too. Mostly about the philosophy section at the official site and the soundtrack.

Yippee! AND hardball comes out on video in my country tomorrow! If I would be Swiss, I would be yodeling! Thumb sucking sounds interesting (mommy!) but that does get your teeth crooked... Maybe he'll need a dental appointment as well? Hope it won't be too painful for you...

Looks like tons of screen time for Mr. Reeves beginning next May & straight through 2004! Personally, I'll be thrilled to see him in scrubs! And, um, I have absolutely NO objection to him falling for an older woman! ;-)

I just read the editorial review of the book, "Thumbsucker" over at amazon. I'm thinking he'll play either the hippie therapist that hypnotizes the kid or maybe the dad. I'm hoping it's the former. This looks like a fun story, I can't wait to read the book.

You'll have to let us know about the book, krix....I may have to read it myself. I'm with you in hoping he plays the hippie therapist....I can see it now!

Darn! I thought that HE was the one sucking thumbs! I was just starting to have such nice thoughts about that... Boohoo!

yeah, so much for the whole oral fixation thing (down, girl, *down*!!). Still, good news that he's still (over?)working -- the man is a machine...

Dr. Reeves, uh? Can I be the first to open my mouth and say "AHHHHH"

I think playing doctor with Keanu would be fun.
