Keanu Reeves is attached to
star in a modern retelling of the classic split personality story, The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.
The project is currently and tentatively titled Jekyll. The story has seen several film and stage incarnations over the years. The specific and key plot points, details and changes for this version are purposely being kept under lock and key.
Strangely enough, Universal is also working on another film version of the story with writer/producer/director Guillermo del Toro. Del Toro's version is slowly developing and could take as long as five years to be fleshed out and filmed, as the prolific producer/director is currently busy with several other projects. Del Toro's version is said to adhere quite closely to Robert Louis Stevenson's original version. There will be a good amount of time between the release of the two films, according to studio insiders.
