Keanu Reeves is Not a Day Old

Keanu ReevesKeanu Reeves is still very much around as an actor because he never really lost his appeal. Think about it. He's 45 years old yet he doesn't look any more than 30. Whether Keanu had some trips to the dermatologist for botox or something, only he knows. But then, he always look scruffy between projects. It seems like he really don't care about his looks at all.

If that's how Keanu Reeves really is, it only means that he's not a bit vain. He then, is one of the luckiest person on earth. No signs of aging in his face. Is it because of his genes? A lot of people says so. Meanwhile, Keanu Reeves' latest project would be as a futuristic bounty hunter in Cowboy Bepop.

Keanu Reeves as Johnny Stompanato?

Keanu Reeves StompanatoStompanato is supposedly Keanu Reeves's movie prior to The Day the Earth Stood Still and The Private Lives of Pippa Lee. The movie should have been finished and shown several months back if it were really done at all. Apparently, the movie was shelved. Either that or another actor has already taken the role.

Stompanato should have been Keanu's movie with Catherine Zeta-Jones. The movie is to be based on the true-to-life the story about Johnny Stompanato (Reeves), who was murdered by Lana Turner's (Zeta-Jones) daughter. But then, it is almost impossible for the movie to push through because Keanu will be doing Cowboy Bepop for 20th Century Fox and hopefully, 47 Rounin for Universal Pictures. Keanu will sure be busy this year and the Stompanato project may have to be shelved until 2010. But then, that's the projected play date for this movie though.

Keanu Reeves Sighted with a Blonde

Keanu Reeves blonde dateDuring the off-season, Keanu Reeves dons his homeless look - a man with a full beard and disheveled hair. Keanu was really fond of this mien, which keeps him away from the shots of the paparazzi and the attention of the regular folks.

Well, Keanu's disguise wasn't good enough, it seems. Just last Sunday, he was spotted having breakfast with a blonde girl in big shades. Nobody knows who the girl is but it sure isn't Parker Posey, who is rumored to be Keanu's present girlfriend.
It could be just a friendly date though. The two were spotted at La Pain Quotidien in Brentwood, California.

Keanu Reeves's next project is Cowboy Bepop. He is expected to shave when the camera starts rolling. Stand by for The Private Lives of Pippa Lee too, which will be shown later this year.

Keanu Reeves is Not Merely a Voice in Cowboy Bepop

Keanu Reeves Cowboy BepopContrary to certain reports, Keanu Reeves won't simply lend his voice to Cowboy Bepop. This live-action film is going to be, as its name suggests, live. It won't be an animated version of the movie like what has been released before.

20th Century Fox has bought the rights to the story and the pre-production stages has been in the works for some time now. Keanu will play Spike Spiegel. He won't merely be the voice over for Spiegel for the movie.

Cowboy Bepop is an action-packed movie that is surely going to be another hit. If done profusely well, it can even surpass the gross income of The Day The Earth Stood Still, which totaled to more than $224 million at the international box office.

Keanu Reeves and The Cowboy Bepop Story

Keanu Reeves Cowboy BepopWhat is Cowboy Bepop anyway? Many non-anime fans are clueless to the storyline of this series. So for those interested, here's the backdrop of the story:


Cowboy Bepop is a Japanese-produced anime series that was aired for such a short time in Japan. The whole series only contained 26 episodes. Created by Sunrise Inc., this is deemed one of the best animes ever made. The series is also aired in the US as part of Cartoon Network's Adult Swim block.


The story is about a group of futuristic bounty hunters traveling the solar system on a spaceship. Their leader is Spike Spiegel, although it was Jet Black who owned the ship. The setting 2071 so instead of cars, spaceships are used to move around. The group spaceship is called Bepop, thus the name of the series. The lead character is Spike, who used to be a member of the Red Dragon society, a notorious group of criminals. He's being hunted by the group since he broke out.

The Movie

Keanu Reeves said that deliberation is being made in order to come up with the best story for the live-action movie. The series was episodic so the concern is really how to mesh everything in one full-length film. There has been a Cowboy Bepop movie already created, but also in animation. This time around, Keanu will take the lead role and 20th Century Fox is producing.

Keanu Reeves' 2009 Movie Line Up

Keanu Reeves MoviesA futuristic story about bounty hunters - that's Keanu Reeves' next project, Cowboy Bepop. Keanu reunites with 20th Century Fox, the same outfit the produced the worldwide hit, The Day the Earth Stood Still.

While movie fans might think that Keanu Reeves is in a sci-fi roll, the trend will be broken by his next movie to hit the silver screen, The Private Lives of Pippa Lee. This movie is a drama and Keanu Reeves isn't assuming the lead role either. It's a refreshing change from his usual Matrix-inspired characters though. Here, Keanu plays the love interest of Winona Ryder, whom he previously worked with in the film Bram Stoker's Dracula. The movie is in post production and is expected to be released in the first half of this year.

Right now, Keanu is busy with Cowboy Bepop, an adaptation of the hit Japanese anime series of the same title. Keanu will play Spike Spiegel, the leader of a group of bounty hunters who previously has ties with an underground, notorious group. Now, that group is out to take him. Keanu said that the screenplay is still in the works and they're still deliberating which part of the original story they would work on.

Keanu Reeves is also rumored to do 47 Rounin, another Japanese-inspired story. This one is more an epic story though. Unlike his futuristic characters, his role here would require him to wear the Japanese garb and take is audience back to 1700's. However, this movie is still on the works. Whether Keanu will work on it or not isn't definite yet. But even if it's a go, filming may not start up until the latter part of the year.

Keanu is also considered for the Jack Traven role. Although he had said he won't be back for Speed 3, maybe Sandra would make him change his mind. Let's just wait and see.

Keanu Reeves for 47 Rounin

Keanu Reeves 47 RouninKeanu Reeves is the man of the hour, so it seems. While the Cowboy Bepop pre-production is underway, producers are looking at this Hollywood actor for yet another action film. With its working title 47 Rounin, this movie is all about the Japanese samurai of the same name. Expect this film to be another action-flick for Keanu.

If Cowboy Bepop is a looking-into-the-future story with its time line being in 2071, 47 Rounin is a trail back in time having a setting of 1702 Japan. Producers say that this film would have action-packed scenes and backdrop similar to The Lord of The Rings and Gladiator. Shooting is set for next year, as Keanu will be doing Cowboy Bepop this time around. Hope the film would push through with Keanu Reeves on the main role.

Is Keanu Reeves Afraid of Technology?

Keanu Reeves ComputerIt seems like our sci-fi action star is not really a technology buff after all. Why, on this world, would an actor like Keanu Reeves, who starred in films like The Matrix as a computer hacker and Johnny Mnemonic as a human data carrier, refuses to own a computer?

In today's times, every American house has at least two computers. And almost every person owns a laptop. In his interview with Details recently, Keanu admitted that he never owns a computer not he sends email. Keanu said that he writes all his letters using a typewriter instead.

Seems like dear old Keanu would have to keep in terms with technology or else he might not be effective in his chosen genre. But then, he said that he has no plans to embrace the internet just yet. And the thought of using a word processor doesn't appeal to him much.

The Lakehouse on the Oxygen Channel

Keanu Reeves The Lake HouseKeanu Reeves' and Sandra Bullock's second movie together, The Lake House, will be shown Monday on The Oxygen Channel. This is Keanu and Sandra's second project after the Speed, which was termed as one of the fastest movies of all time.

This time though, Keanu and Sandra are not going to be on a fast-paced action film inside the bus. The Lake House is a slow melodrama about two people meeting, liking, and eventually loving each other despite the fact that they're two years apart. They are living in the same house, the Lake House, although of different time span.

Watch his feel-good love story about two people literally withstanding the test of time for love. Incidentally, Keanu Reeves' new movie, The Private Lives of Pippa Lee, share the same melodramatic tone. The movie is expected to hit theaters this year.

Keanu Reeves Should Be Back for Speed 3

Keanu Reeves Speed 3The producers of the Speed franchise, 20th Century Fox, said that Sandra Bullock is still the lady they prefer to do Speed 3. They only hope that she's still up to do it and accept their offer.

However, whoever will play Jack Traven is the biggest question. Keanu Reeves says he might not do it. Jason Patric says he could. But between these two men, Keanu Reeves performed better in the box office. Incidentally, Speed 2 was a major flop.

Keanu is set to do another film with Fox, Cowboy Bepop. But if the producers were able to work on his schedules, maybe he could star in yet another action flick? Well, Keanu Reeves is better off doing an Officer Jack Traven number again, if Fox is decided to do better in Speed 3 than it did in Speed 2.

Keanu Reeves: The Worst Actor?

Keanu Reeves Worst ActorThere was never a good review about Keanu Reeves' acting. At least I haven't encountered one yet. Now, he's even nominated as the Worst Actor of this year! Called as the Golden Raspberry Award, this body is out to give recognition to the worst acting the previous year had seen. It is also the initial presentation of the body.

Well, other actors have made it on the list too, and the biggest one yet is Tom Cruise. Apparently, they don't like him in Valkyrie as much as they liked Keanu Reeves in The Day the Earth Stood Still.

Either way, the final list of nominees will be announced on February 21. Winners will be made known on the eve of the Oscars. Surely, there won't be an awards night for them because frankly, which star would actually grace their ridicules?

Other nominees for the not-so funny awards are Mark Wahlberg for The Happening, along with actresses Reese Whiterspoon, Paris Hilton, and Dianne Keaton. There were also awards going out for the worst film, prequel, sequel, or remake.

Everybody loves Point Break

Keanu Reeves Point BreakPoint Break is one of the earlier movies of Keanu Reeves, which also starred Patrick Swayze. Keanu played Johnny Utah in this film, a local police who was in pursuit of a hot criminal over the oceans. This movie is one of the fast-paced thrillers Keanu Reeves has done. The film also gave way to Keanu's policemen character later on, more particular in Speed opposite Sandra Bullock.

Recall that Point Break was resurrected just recently via a play/reality show. If The Day the Earth Stood Still is a remake, so will be the new Point Break.

The working title is Point Break Indo, as the film will be shot mostly in Bali, Indonesia. Unfortunately though, Keanu Reeves won't star in this film. The characters in the story would have different names too. As such, you expect that the officer's character in the film won't be Johnny Utah.

Even so, this goes to show that Keanu Reeves' past and present films are still making waves. Indeed, he's one of the most bankable actors these days.
