Rival Jeykll project gets up

Movie News

Last week the trades reported that remake-roid Keanu Reeves was attached to play the titular role(s) in a contemporary “Dr. Jekyll & Mr Hyde” (titled “Jekyll”).

Not surprisingly, with the Robert Louis Stevenson-created characters public domain and free-for-grabs, a rival project is in the works.

This one, from “Bad Lieutenant” director Abel Ferrera, will star Curtis ’50 Cent’ Jackson and Forest Whitaker (coincidentally both were onboard Sylvester Stallone’s “The Expendables” but conveniently exited the project; sure to be some interesting conversations going on on the set) – and quite frankly, sounds a bit more intriguing than something starring android Reeves.

The Ferrara-project is simply titled “Jekyll & Hyde”, and will produced by Glasshouse Pictures’ Brett Walsh (who produced the recent James Franco/Sienna Miller flick “Camille”) and Cheetah Vision Films’ Randall Emmett, who has worked with ’50 Cent’ on “Righteous Kill” and “Streets of Blood”.

Variety has the story..
