Can Keanu Reeves play Dr. Jekyll? Hmmm

Tbd-keanureeves051109 Reimaginings are the PC way of saying remakes, and as every franchise known to man starts to get this treatment, why would something like The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde be any different? At least it's got a meaty main character that could allow the right actor to ... what? Keanu Reeves is going to star? Okay, never mind.

The new version, written by Revolutionary Road's Justin Haythe, will be called simply Jekyll and may be directed by Nicolas Winding Refn, although details of the plot are being kept under wraps, the Hollywood Reporter says.

THR also says that Guillermo del Toro is currently working on his own take for Universal, which is overseeing Jekyll. If there's one guy that could make even Reeves emote, it's Guillermo.
