Keanu Reeves in Talks With Ruben Östlund

Hollywood heavyweight Keanu Reeves is currently in talks to star in Ruben Östlund’s upcoming feature film, The Entertainment System Is Down. Östlund, who directed Triangle of Sadness, revealed this news in an interview with Variety. However, the exact nature of Reeves’s role remains shrouded in mystery.

About the Film

The Entertainment System Is Down is a social satire based on a long-haul flight journey with a malfunctioning entertainment system. As boredom starts to take a toll on the passengers, their frustrations turn into rage, resulting in chaotic events. Östlund has been developing the idea for this film for several years, amassing anecdotes to serve as movie inspiration.

Reeves’ Other Projects

Beyond his discussed role in Östlund’s film, Keanu Reeves is also making waves for voicing Shadow the Hedgehog in the upcoming Paramount’s Sonic the Hedgehog 3. Furthermore, he is involved in multiple projects that are currently in production or post-production.

Among them, the John Wick spinoff Ballerina and Good Fortune, directed and penned by Aziz Ansari, are in post-production. Although the storyline for Good Fortune is yet to be revealed, it features an all-star cast – including Reeves, Seth Rogen, Sandra Oh, and Keke Palmer.

Currently in production is Constantine 2, the sequel to the 2005 supernatural action film with Francis Lawrence as the director. Peter Stormare is set to resume his role as Lucifer in the sequel.

Reeves is also getting ready for an adaptation of his BRZRKR comic book series, with writing assistance from Matt Kindt and Mattson Tomlin.

BRZRKR Comic Book Synopsis

BRZRKR, listed on Amazon, gives us a glimpse into what to expect. Keanu Reeves makes his comic book writing debut in this series. It depicts a half-mortal, half-god character, B., who’s compelled to violence and sacrifices his sanity as a result.

B. wanders the world for centuries until he finds refuge working for the U.S. government, fighting battles too violent and dangerous for others. The government, in exchange, promises to reveal the truth about his violent existence and how to end it.

Final Thoughts

The prospect of Reeves pairing up with Ruben Östlund for The Entertainment System Is Down is undoubtedly exciting for fans worldwide. The duo could create a cinematic masterpiece, given Östlund’s knack for social satire and Reeves’ versatile acting skills.
