Keanu Reeves has joined the cast of Eli Roth’s upcoming psychosexual thriller ‘Knock Knock.’
The actor has been given the lead role and will do double-duty as executive producer on the project. According to Deadline, filming of “Knock Knock” begins this week in Santiago, Chile.
Keanu Reeves will portray a married man who is left alone for the weekend, when two young girls “knock” at his door and seek to destroy his life. The girls have been cast as well – Lorenza Izzo (The Green Inferno) and Ana de Armas (Hands of Stone).
On casting Reeves for the project, Roth said: “I had a window before I promote ‘Green Inferno’, and I wanted to make a movie like Roman Polanski or Paul Verhoeven made when they were young, a classic psychosexual thriller that’s not a horror movie, but would have everyone on the edge of their seats. Getting Keanu is amazing, he’s a fine actor who is perfect for this. I feel I can have this movie ready for Toronto if I need to, and he’s catching a plane tomorrow and we’ll be fitting him for wardrobe right away.”
Roth made his directorial debut in 2002 with horror film ‘Cabin Fever’, and has since directed Hostel and its sequel.
