Deadline is reporting that Netflix has acquired the script by TJ Fixman for Past Midnight. The title of the article says that Keanu is in talks to star. However, the article never says that Keanu is in talks only that they hope to sign him to star and that he will come on board.
There is limited info about the plot but it is being described as a a new type of vigilante superhero story. They made a point of saying that if Keanu signs on, “it won’t be his first time vigilante rodo”.
Keanu likes to mix up the types of roles that he plays and up until now hasn’t allowed himself to get pigeon holed into a “type” of role or character. We’ll have to wait and see if Keanu actually signs on to the project.
