Why Keanu's Director Left "Jekyll," He's Ditching Harrison Ford Too! 


Empire Online caught up with director Nicolas Winding Refn and confirmed that the Danish director will not be working with Keanu Reeves on "Jekyll," the latest adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson's Gothic tale.

Refn, who's currently working on his Viking film, "Valhalla Rising," also left production of "The Dying of the Light" written by Paul Schrader and Harrison Ford is attached to star. Instead, the director will focus on an adaptation of James Sallis' crime noir "Drive" starring Ryan Gosling.

So why did Refn leave the "Jekyll" production? Supposedly, it's because of clashing schedules. He told Empire, "I just couldn't do it when they needed me."

What does he think of Keanu? "Keanu is a wonderful actor and I'm sure it will be a fantastic film with him in."
