Keanu Reeves will star in a new version of Robert Louis Stevenson's "The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde" and will also star in a live-action version of "Cowboy Bebop" playing lead bounty hunter Spike Spiegel.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, "Jekyll" will be set in the modern day.
"Cowboy Bebop," A Japanese animated series, tells the story of a group of interstellar bounty hunters and their adventures aboard the starship Bebop. Some fans of the show had pointed it as a possible inspiration for the series "Firefly," though it was never clear if creator Joss Whedon had ever seen the show.
No release dates have been set for either project. -- 05/11/09
