Keanu Reeves Set To Headline Matthew Ross’s Romantic Thriller Siberia

John Wick 2: Chapter 2 actor Keanu Reeves has been cast in a leading role in Frank & Lola director Matthew Ross‘s Siberia.

Reeves, who is perhaps best known for his role in the highly-successful Matrix series as Thomas Anderson (better known as Neo), will play an American diamond trader with a shady past who finds himself in Russia in order to make a sale. Unfortunately, he not only loses the gems but his partner as well and is trapped in the remote wastes of Siberia. Although Reeves character meets and enters a relationship with a cafe owner, things he would rather have left in his past come back to haunt him.

Writing the screenplay for the film is Scott B. Smith, author of the novels A Simple Plan and The Ruins in addition to the screenplay adaptations of both films.

Per Comingsoon.net:

Reeves can be seen coming up in To the Bone, the feature debut of Buffy the Vampire Slayer‘s Marti Noxon. The film, which also stars Lily Collins, Carrie Preston, Lili Taylor, Alex Sharp and Liana Liberato, is based on Noxon’s real-life battle with anorexia and was acquired by Netflix out of Sundance. Before To the Bone debuts later this year, however, fans will be able to catch Reeves in this month’s John Wick: Chapter 2. The sequel, which reteams Reeves with his The Matrix trilogy co-star Laurence Fishburne, hits theaters February 10.

An aspiring writer, longtime film junkie, and former UCLARadio.com disc jockey (where I graduated with a BA in Political Science), I've made the jump from penning book reviews and current events editorials for HonorSociety.org to writing movie and TV news and reviews.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
