Keanu Reeves Gets Jekyll-ed

By: Celebuzz / May 8, 2009

Whoa; Keanu Reeves is about to get two-faced.

The Hollywood Reporter says that Reeves has signed on for a big-screen reworking of the Robert Louis Stevenson classic The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. The often-adapted story involves a doctor who develops an evil alter-ego after drinking his own potion.

The new version, simply titled Jekyll, will likely be directed by Nicolas Winding Refn (who helmed the Pusher series), and Justin Haythe, who penned Revolutionary Road, is writing the script.

Sounds promising. But can Keanu Reeves pull off two personalities, let alone one, on the big screen?

Have your say in the comments section: Do you think Keanu can do a convincing Jekyll?
