Heading towards good progress, "The Night Watchman1" is getting big support from Fox Searchlight and New Regency as both companies have agreed to co-finance the flick together.
Originally penned by authors John Ridley and James Ellroy, the thriller drama focuses on a cop who's always done what was needed to solve homicides and crack down on gang violence. However, everything falls apart when he gets a wakeup call and decides he can no longer play the game that made him so effective.
Shooting on the movie is slated to start on April 30 this year with Keanu Reeves being attached to portray the cop. Seating as director is "Harsh Times" helmer David Ayer who is also on duty to do a rewrite on the screenplay.
