Actor Keanu Reeves, known for his roles in The Matrix and John Wick, will be the lead in Jonah Hill’s next film. Hill’s previous works include the comedies 22 Jump Street and Don’t Look Up. The film Outcome will have Reeves in the starring role, and Hill will direct.
Thanks to Deadline, people now know that Jonah Hill and Ezra Woods have co-written the screenplay for Outcome, which Hill will produce under his Strong Baby label. Although narrative details are being kept under wraps for the time being, the fact that Jonah Hill will direct Keanu Reeves should be enough to get studios and streaming services enthusiastic about bidding on distribution rights.
Jonah Hill has mostly built his career on his humorous performances in films like Superbad, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Get Him to the Greek, This Is the End, 21 Jump Street, and 22 Jump Street. Mid90s, a coming-of-age comedy-drama starring Sunny Suljic, Lucas Hedges, and Katherine Waterston, was the actor’s directorial debut in 2018. It follows a 13-year-old child in 1990s Los Angeles who starts hanging out with a bunch of skateboarders who are largely older than him.
Hill will direct the next documentary Stutz, which will focus on his chats with famous psychiatrist Phil Stutz, because of the film’s positive critical reception.
