Keanu Reeves Makes Time for 'Henry's Crime'


Keanu Reeves


The star of 'The Day the Earth Stood Still' will take on a romantic comedy genre as he is set to star and produce this Malcolm Venville-directed movie under his Company Films banner.

Romantic comedy "Henry's Crime" will be another feature film getting on Keanu Reeves' sleeves. While he is still attached to upcoming projects, "Jekyll" and "Cowboy Bebop", the Klaatu of "The Day the Earth Stood Still" has been brought aboard the project as leading actor and producer.

Taking the role of a bighearted man who is falsely accused of robbing a bank in Buffalo, Reeves is expected to join the principal photography when the production is kicked off in November in Buffalo. This will be his first comedy movie after starring alongside Diane Keaton and Jack Nicholson in 2003's "Something's Gotta Give".

The 44-year-old actor will produce the movie along with Lemore Syvan and his Company Films' partner Stephen Hamel. The feature project is set to be the first picture in production under the banner the lead actor of "The Lake House" runs with Hamel.

"Henry's Crime" will be directed by Malcolm Venville using the script written by "Anvil! The Story of Anvil" director Sacha Gervasi. Scott Fischer will executive produce. This movie will be financed through private equity, and no release date has yet been set.
