Keanu Reeves will executive produce and star in the series ‘Rain’.
Movie star crosses over to small screen in adaptation of Barry Einsler book series.
According to Deadline, Keanu Reeves has joined the expanding list of movie stars crossing over to the small screen. The actor will be the executive producer and star of Rain.
Adapted from the John Rain thriller book series by American author Barry Eisler, the drama will follow a Japanese-American hit man, played by Reeves, who specialises in making it look like his victims died of natural causes.
“As a huge fan of Barry’s work, I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to bring his iconic character and incredible world to life,” said the Matrix star.
The first series developed by Slingshot Global Media, Rain does not yet have a home network.
Recently seen in 47 Ronin after making his directorial debut with Man of Tai Chi, Reeves will soon return to theatres in John Wick, in which he also plays a hit man, and in Eli Roth’s horror thriller Knock, Knock. – AFP Relaxnews
