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.

what all u weirdos need to understand under all the glitz and glamour their is a seedy side to this vegas life that must stand about the suicide rate and all the people that have od'd and killed themselves in casinos...there are many that find life so depressing that this is a real issue that gets swept up in the markeeting of the casinos and free word of mouth advertising that comes straight out of the tourists mouths themselves...for instance because word of mouth delivers underage prostitutes and sex industry professionals to las vegas...hence the old saying "what happens in vegas....." how can a markeeting campaign like that leave any local feeing good about the citythey leave in...thanks to all the deviants of the world!!!!!!!

Yeah may have worked at the mgm as one of the mindless sex slaves that occupy the space their....and you might be very happy with all the whale wallets that you have dove in and sought are happy and content to know that you will soon enough be retired from being a party girl soon enough...just wait until you are all partied out and see how the men re-act too....P.S. the younger you are now playing the game of money for sex the happier you will become...but if the well runs out

Mean spirits are EVERYWHERE. Not just in Vegas. No one has to go there to find that kind of attitude or be lost in a vaccuum of mindless UNLOVING condition. I've been to Vegas and stayed @ the MGM Grand it is a beautiful peaceful place. And it's all in what you're looking for that you WILL find.

Wow, there are some very sad, mean-spirited, and jealous haters here. Hoping that you somehow be blessed with the self-love that you clearly lack.

Yeah right...I will be ashamed when men are...especially the famous ones...they switch sex partners like they pop microwave popcorn...Stds should be a concern but when you have had thousands and thousands of sex partners what does it matter like Keanu or any male celebrity has it doesnt matter anymore. Close the eyes and open them up and you are masturbating with your own hand in a sea of herpes...try valtrex I know all your friends use it.

You are a typical man that was there with him as one of his male cohorts. You should be ashamed of how many times you hired a prostitute or hit it raw dog. You like it the ass and are the jealous type. Its okay I like latex with lots of lube unlike you that like it Keanu dumped you. Next time try KY you big baby...

Angry kiddo. I'm not gay and neither is he.

To you loser guy who claims to be a friend of Keanu. First of all you are gay and have a hard on for him yourself. You should not be so jealous of what reality really is. Perhaps you were in the other room and came out to greet him when you saw us(me and Keanu together after sex) and I almost poured the water on your head. So shut up urself. Let Keanu enjoy some female companionship you prick.

I would like to see how each of you would ACTUALLY behave if you really ever met Keanu in person. He is a real man with a real soul. Yes it is very important to be private and sacred in life. This man deserves respect. He doesn't hide behind a computer typing nonsence about others. To you who posted the Las Vegas sex with him...shame on you! You are either lying or trying to get some unjustified attention for something you just need to shut up about. Do you actually think that one act with him could ever make you worth anything?

I had unpaid sex with Keanu in las vegas after I met him at the mgm grand niteclub. He is very well endowed and cried when he climaxed....he has a heart of gold...but he forgot to say thank you so i almost poured a bottle of water on him and his friends laughed...other than that he is a pure gentleman..

I hope Keanu can happy every day!!

I don't believe Keanu was filming the Matrix when his baby was stillborn, and the mother was killed in a car accident two years later. Even if he was, how could he have prevented their deaths? I think those of you leaving nasty comments are jealous of how handsome and rich Keanu is. I had the pleasure of meeting him when he was filming in Kenmore and he seemed like a very nice, genuine guy. I would make out with him.

WOW! some angry kiddos on sad for you. You should know better than to talk about someone like that, especially someone you don't even know. Heck ya better be careful to cause if it were me and I had tons of money as you put it. I could in fact sue you for some of the things you are saying. Perhaps you should work on NOT letting jealousy turn you into something you're not! Try to be a better person and take the high road, you might be surprised by how much better your life will be down the line. GOOD LUCK!! BTW I'm really looking forward to this new project, nice to see something different in the works for all those on the team. Have a wonderful day! ~Q

To the person or persons who made the previous four comments. Mr.Reeves has an occupation, it's acting. He is an actor. His goal is to bring a little light into your life. He is excellent at it. You,on the other hand, have so far failed in life or you wouldn't be so angry. Your poor mother has also failed in her attempt to raise a respectful, thoughtful adult. I hope this changes and your life gets better.

Keanu Reeves is the walking dead, and so much so that he leaves people to die on the streets while he counts his hundreds of millions by his smoggy pool side! Keanu escapes into films because his docile personality does not allow him a REAL life! He is a dirty dirty man! He even hires hookers because no woman would dare love such a farce! He even let his baby and girlfriend die because ‘making Martrix’ was more important to him than love, people and reality! Keanu Reeves is the ugliest man alive! EWWWWWWWWWWWW EWWWWWWWWWWWW EWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!!
