Keanu Reeves could do with a hit. He hasn’t had a bona fide success in a long time, and recently 47 Ronin turned into a costly failure, while his directorial debut, Man Of Tai Chi, barely made a dent in the box office.
He’ll be hoping for better by teaming up with Eli Roth for the psychological thriller Knock, Knock.
Deadline says the movie follows a happily married family man who is left alone for a long weekend. During this time he is visited by two beautiful women and as this is the movie, things quickly spiral out of control.
The women are set to be played by Lorenza Izzo, who also appears in Roth’s upcoming cannibal horror thriller, The Green Inferno, and Ana de Armas, who recently appeared in the Robert De Niro drama, Hands of Stone.
Also starring is and The Green Inferno alum, Ignacia Allamand, who will be Reeves’ wife, while Colleen Camp and Aaron Burns are also onboard.
It’s all come together very quickly, with Keanu Reeves signing up shortly after reading the script and then a rush into production with filming starting April 14th in Santiago, Chile.
Roth comments,”I had a window before I promote The Green Inferno, and I wanted to make a movie like Roman Polanski or Paul Verhoeven made when they were young, a classic psychosexual thriller that’s not a horror movie, but would have everyone on the edge of their seats. Getting Keanu Reeves is amazing, he’s a fine actor who is perfect for this. I feel I can have this movie ready for Toronto if I need to, and he’s catching a plane tomorrow and we’ll be fitting him for wardrobe right away.”
