"Watchman" Eyes Fixed on Forest Whitaker



Oscar-winning actor Forest Whitaker will star opposite Keanu Reeves in "The Night Watchman."

Riding high on his winning at this year's Oscar through "The Last King of Scotland", Forest Whitaker has given his commitment to star in thriller drama "The Night Watchman1", which was recently reported to be financed by both Fox Searchlight Pictures and New Regency Productions.

Thereby joining Keanu Reeves in the cast, the Texas-born actor will portray a captain of an elite group of LAPD cops called Ad/Vice in the project. Meanwhile, Reeves is billed as one of the team's members who questions the ruthless tactics he has applied to become such an effective force in solving murders and battling gang violence and drugs.

Filming is pushed back from an April 30 start to May 21 under the direction of David Ayer who will helm from James Ellroy's script he rewrote. Alexandra Milchan, Lucas Foster, Erwin Stoff, and Alexandra M. Lambert are all set to produce with Carla DiBello serving as an assistant to producer.
