The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Keanu Reeves 


Well not that strange, but Keanu has been attached to star in Universal's retelling of "The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde."

At least they hired a superb writer, Justin Haythe, the guy who wrote the adaptation of the searing "Revolutionary Road."

It is now going to be called simply "Jekyll" and
Nicolas Winding Refn is in talks to direct the project.

Based on Robert Louis Stevenson's influential novel, we'll see Keanu transform from a gentle doctor to an evil version of himself! All the angst! The anger! The drama! The horror!

But wait, Universal also commissioned Guillermo Del Toro to work on ANOTHER "Jekyll and Hyde" adventure, but the director is supposed to stick with Stevenson's vision.

Clearly, our friends at Universal really, really want a "Jekyll and Hyde" film, they're making two projects based on the gothic tale!
