Morgan Creek has announced that they have cast Keanu Reeves as the lead in a new sc-fi film to be directed by Italian auteur Gabriele Muccino (Seven Pounds). The studio is currently out looking for his female co-star.
The new film is being described as Adam and Eve in space love with sophisticated robotics, a crusty older Tommy Lee Jones type character and a comic humanoid servant much like Eddie Izzard. These other roles haven’t been cast yet. Apparently this pitch was good enough to set a $90 million dollar budget on the film!
The original script for the movie was written by Jon Spaihts who hasen’t done much else, and it’s currently being polished up a bit. Here is the more detailed description of the story from THR which actually does sound interesting.

FINALLY THE GIANT SQUID MOVIE YOU DESERVE
This new picture seems like Hunt For Red October meets 20,000 Leagues but with a HP Lovecraft twist. About time. Plus, a whole new look at the Tin Man from Oz. It is absolutely gorgeous.
We’re over the moon excited about this submarine picture. Pointed out by Quiet Earth. The acting looks solid, the sets look great and the idea is simple but terrifying. But seriously submarine guy reading the comic book about giant squids while living in a submarine, you are just asking for trouble!

Looks pretty trippy, right? Almost like a story by late science fiction legend Philip K. Dick. Well, that’s because The Adjustment Bureau, which comes out Sept. 17, is loosely based on a Dick story called “Adjustment Team,” although it seems little of his original story remains.

Hnnn. Adam and Eve in space, huh? That sounds … I’m not too sure how that sounds, actually. An interesting concept, to say the least. Wonder who they’ll get to play Eve?
