Director Exits From Keanu Reeves' 'Jekyll'


Due to scheduling conflict, director Nicolas Winding Refn decides to quit making Keanu Reeves' upcoming movie although he's certain that 'it will be a fantastic film.'

Danish director Nicolas Winding Refn has pulled out of Keanu Reeves' new adaptation of "Jekyll" due to a scheduling conflict. The filmmaker was due to take charge of "Jekyll", a modern retelling of Robert Louis Stevenson's classic, but has since been forced to withdraw from the project.

He tells EmpireOnline.com, "I just couldn't do it when they needed me. Keanu is a wonderful actor and I'm sure it will be a fantastic film with him in." Refn has also dropped out of Harrison Ford's upcoming film "The Dying of the Light" for different reasons, but insists the split was amicable.

He adds, "Unfortunately it just didn't work out. It's a shame. The script was fantastic but things fall apart. It's one of those things that's difficult - I really like Harrison and I think we got along great." Instead, Refn has signed on to direct Ryan Gosling's latest film "Drive", which is soon to begin shooting in Los Angeles.
