Keanu Reeves in...Jekyll

This sounds fake. Like it could be one of those "Funny or Die" parody videos. But bake me a cake and call me grandma, it's real.

Keanu Reeves has been signed to play the dueling personas of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde in a modern retelling of the tale from Universal.

Look, Universal - I'm not trying to tell you how to do your jobs, but you might want to hire someone with actual acting ability to play such a classic character. If you're going to make ANOTHER Jekyll and Hyde adaptation (how many times has that been done?), then just make a movie out of the outstanding BBC TV series that came out a few years ago. To the readers, I'd highly suggest checking that out any way you can get your hands on it.
