Reeves and Bullock, together again


Bullock back with Reeves for 'Il Mare'

By Liza Foreman for The Hollywood Reporter

Sandra Bullock and Keanu Reeves have signed on to star in "Il Mare" for Warner Bros. Pictures. The project will mark the first reteaming of the actors since their 1994 action thriller "Speed." A remake of the Korean feature "Siworae," which also has been known by the title "Il Mare," the romantic drama follows a lonely doctor (Bullock) who begins exchanging love letters with a frustrated architect (Reeves), but they then discover they are separated in time by two years. Based on a screenplay by David Auburn ("Proof"), "Il Mare" will be directed by Argentinean helmer Alejandro Agresti ("Valentin") and produced by Roy Lee and Doug Davison of Vertigo Entertainment. Erwin Stoff also will receive a production credit. The executive producer is Mary McLaglen. "Il Mare" is set to begin production in March in Chicago and will be released worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures. Reeves has appeared in Warners' "The Matrix" trilogy and will be seen in the upcoming Warners release "Constantine." Bullock, another Warners mainstay, stars in the upcoming "Miss Congeniality 2: Armed and Fabulous." Both actors are repped by CAA.

What happened to the Night Watchman? I AM thrilled about another romance for the 2 of them whatever happens.

I'm very excited about this and what I've read of the Korean original sounds wonderful too. Romantic and melancholy and great!

Heee! This is so exciting. I love Sandy.

Falling in love via letters is supremely romantic, so I've heard.

I am looking forward to this one. They have both gone through alot of changes since Speed, it will be interesting to see on their on screen dynamic again.

Sandra has a production company. Wonder if she is producing this for WB?

Tyler it sounds like "Vertigo Entertainment" is producing. Whoever that is.

*so-so gesture* Not a big fan of SB.

Will I watch? I don't know.

While I'm thrilled to learn that S&K are planning to make another movie together,
I hope the Night Watchman is still being developed.
Having a script written by James Ellroy is not only a big honor but also a great challenge!

I thought SB & KR had great chemistry in Speed!! I'm so glad that they will be on the big screen together again. Bravo, to whomever is responsible for this casting!!

I've got the original Il Mare coming from Netflix this week. According to the above linked DVD review, the subtitles leave a lot to be desired, but I'm hoping to get the feel for it anyway.

Iīm little be afraid about romantic drama with Mr. Reeves but ... never say never. Once it must succeed!*cross fingers*

Interesting story. Looks like a Back to the Future, time-space paradoxical kind of thing....second chance story with a happy ending/beginning, depending how you look at it. Neat! I too hope The Night Watchman isn't delayed, though...I have high hopes for it.

Krix, please, tell us how it's the original movie when you whatch it, OK? Curiousity can kill, you know...;P
Anyway, I read a corean DVD review that tells a lot about the story and the characters, but does not have heavy Spoilers,(to the ones who does not want to know too much). I have to say that I'm already in love with the male character, I just imagine how Keanu will play him. I'm here just imagining him, in that house, the sea, with a longish hair and a scarf! (don't know why, but I'm seeing him that way!). :) The link for the review is here, it's pretty good, and does not reveal too much.

I like his choice on this one. I think itís a beautiful story, and I havenít even seen the movie yet. Keanu and Sandy have been cast perfectly in this one.

...I had the same thought Krix, supremely romantic *sigh*

Letters schmetters. A real man woos with pork pies and off-brand cheese cakes.

Posted by: V. on January 20, 2005 01:03 PM

It will be great seeing the two together. I always wished they would have hooked up as a couple. (Sandy would be good for Keanu). I also agree w/other posts that a romantic role is questionable and that The Night Watchman will be a better artistic challenge for Keanu. I hope it's still in the works. Keanu needs to start working w/some new female actors. He's getting to comfortable working w/those he's worked w/in the past and there's a lot a new exciting ones on the scene.

It looks like he's really no longer w/Becky?
