Reeves’ Night Watchman Moving Forward

ON

Variety reports that Fox Searchlight and New Regency will co-finance The Night Watchman, a James Ellroy-scripted drama that will star Keanu Reeves.

Reeves plays a cop who’s always done what was needed to solve homicides and crack down on gang violence until he gets a wakeup call and decides he can no longer play the game that made him so effective.

David Ayer has been set to direct after he does a rewrite. Production begins April 30.
