Just when I thought Keanu Reeves had developed a new fondness for the crime genre, I'm told that Henry's Crime is instead a romantic comedy. He will not only star but also produce.
Keanu Reeves for Henry's Crime
Henry's Crime will be the first project under Reeves' banner, Company Films, which he runs with Stephen Hamel. Written by Sacha Gervasi, the film is a Capra-esque romantic comedy in which Reeves will play a big-hearted man who is falsely accused of robbing a bank in Buffalo.
Reeves hasn't gotten in front of the camera for a comedy since 2003's Something's Gotta Give, and that turned out okay. The Lake House, on the other hand, is another story.
Production on Henry's Crime is set to begin this November in Buffalo.
