Neo steps in for Russ

It’s out with Russ and in with Neo. For undisclosed reasons, Russell Crowe has left “Tripoli”, the story of how U.S. soldier William Eaton joined forces with an exiled king to overthrow the corrupt ruler of what is now Libya, which is set to be directed by Ridley Scott, and the studio has replaced him with Keanu Reeves. But it’s not all good news for Keanu, according to Variety, 20th Century Fox has put the film into turnaround, and now co-financing companies are kicking the tires.
