JUST BECAUSE HE'S THE HOT PROPERTY LATELY DOES NOT MEAN HE SUITS EVERY PROJECT YOU STUPID FUCKS GOOD FUCKING GOD JESUS FUCKING CHRIST WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU???????


Sorry, had to get that off my chest. The link's work-safe, though obscene.

EDIT:
Someone asked me why I cared so much and found him so abyssmal a casting job just now. I explained it thus:

imagine Keanu Reeves as Harrison Ford's character in Bladerunner: that's the role they're casting him in. However, A Scanner Darkly is a much more human story than Bladerunner's basic theme of 'what /makes/ a person human?', so imagine Keanu Reeves playing a Ray Deckert who has to very personally CARE about the people he's investigating- and get driven a bit batty by the extreme dichotomy between his work life and his personal life.
  • I hear they are working on a Richard Simmons movie...

    The Passion Fruit of Christ 2 : Bitch Slap with a Vegnence.
  • what scares me more is george clooney producing. do any of those hollywood goldfish brains remember 'confessions of a dangerous mind'? that was his fault.
    • They're probably remembering the three big successes that Section 8 has had in the last 3 years, rather than a semi-flop like Confessions (or the other three failures) in the same time frame.

      An argument could be made that Confessions sucking had less to do with the production company and more to do with Clooney directing it, which is being written+directed by someone unaffiliated with the production company, namely Richard Linklater, who's also had a pretty good success record lately (School of Rock, for instance.)

      I can pretty easily see how Linklater could adapt some of the animated techniques he used in Waking Life to A Scanner Darkly, and that might even be kinda cool...
  • Well, Keanu does have the stoner thing down...
  • AAAAAAAAAhhhhh....

    AAAAHHHHHHHH

    *sob*

    (at least Richard Linklater will, er, might direct it...)
  • Let's hear it for the vague blur!
    • It's funny, because I just read this book a couple of weeks ago, and I'm thinking that it would make a cool movie, but I was sure that the blur suit effect would feature prominently in such a movie, even though the technology lends practically nothing to the book. Like there's no reason the suit couldn't make everyone look like a generic mannequin instead. But it's a seedy special effect possibility, so that gets headlined.
      • I think Keanu is gonna play the vague blur. Save a bundle on the FX $ that way.
        • I wish that method acting was still trying to make your own life into the character's life, instead of making the character's life echo your own.
  • (no subject) -
    • I think they just need to put Ashton Kutcher and Keanu Reeves in a movie together.
      Perhaps oil should be involved.
  • god damn it! why do they have to keep ruining great books!
  • NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
  • Thank you.

    Thank you for saying that!
  • When are the folks in Hollywood going to realise HE IS REALLY BORING! And has the brains and acting talent of a Goldfish.
    • I think they need to put him and Ashton Kutcher in the same movie. They're obviously trying to figure out if 'brainless, pretty, and serious' or 'brainless, pretty, and comical' is the best. Why not just put them head to head?
  • I was crushed when I heard that bit of casting news, was slightly encouraged by Richard Linklater's participation, and was crushed again when I heard it would be in the style of Waking Life.
