Hill is set to direct the film.

Fresh off of the box office and critical success of John Wick: Chapter 4, it looks like Keanu Reeves will team up with Jonah Hill for a new dark comedy movie.

Titled Outcome, The Hollywood Reporter states that Reeves is in negotiations to star in the film, alongside Hill. The latter will also direct the comedy, which is based on a script he wrote with Ezra Woods.

If the negotiations are successful, Reeves would play the character of Reef, who is described as “a damaged Hollywood star who must dive into the dark depths of his past to confront his demons and make amends after he is extorted with a mysterious video clip from his past”.

On top of co-writing, directing and starring, Hill will also produce Outcome, which has been picked up by Apple Original Films.

The project will be the third movie directed by Hill, following the 2018 coming-of-age drama Mid90s and last year’s Netflix documentary Stutz. Both films were acclaimed by critics.

Meanwhile, Keanu Reeves is coming off the success of John Wick: Chapter 4 which was released less than three weeks ago in cinemas and has already grossed $306 million on a $100 million budget. Critics have also raved about the action blockbuster, with it earning an impressive 94% score on Rotten Tomatoes – making it one of the actor’s best-reviewed movies.
