Faces & Names: Reeves courted for courtroom drama
Keanu Reeves is in final negotiations to replace Daniel Craig in Courtney Hunt’s courtroom drama “The Whole Truth.”
Craig abruptly dropped out of the project in April just days before production was slated to start in Boston, leaving the cast and crew stranded with nothing to do but go home.
Renee Zellweger remains attached to co-star alongside “Belle” star Gugu Mbatha-Raw and “Super 8” star Gabriel Basso, who will play defense attorney Reeves’ client — a teen accused of murdering his wealthy father.
“The Whole Truth” will serve as Hunt’s follow-up to her critically acclaimed drama “Frozen River,” which received a pair of Oscar nominations for Hunt’s original screenplay and Melissa Leo’s lead performance.
