on

Netflix has been focusing on mostly original content as of late. The company recently outbid the competition for the rights to the newest release of the film Past Midnight. The streaming service is currently pushing for none other than Keanu Reeves to star in the film’s leading role.

 No Stranger To Science Fiction

Keanu Reeves’ latest John Wick films may have been adapted into a comic book, but now he will translate the pages of a comic into a full-length feature flick.

AV Club

Keanu Reeves’ career contains a number of twists and turns as he’s played diverse characters while remaining largely out of the Hollywood limelight. From Ted Theodore Logan in the Bill and Ted movies to the savior, Neo, in The Matrix trilogy, his ability to immerse himself in his characters cannot be overstated.

About Past Midnight

The plot of Past Midnight is a closely guarded secret, but is being described as “a new type of vigilante superhero story.”

The Hook

The film will be produced by brothers Joe and Anthony Russo, who gave us the Marvel Studios’ Captain America films The Winter Soldier and Civil War, as well as the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War. The script was written by T.J. Fixman, whose filmography includes One Night on the Hudson, The Lost, and Disney’s Gargoyles. The writer also consulted with toy company-turned-movie studio Hasbro on a number of projects.

Netflix Dives Headfirst Into Superhero Filmmaking

Past Midnight will be directed by Dope filmmaker Rick Famuyiwa, who recently left the DC Comics’ The Flash project due to creative differences. Past Midnight looks to be a step up in the Netflix superhero genre.

Geek Exchange

Keanu hasn’t officially signed any contracts for Past Midnight, but he is the leading choice to continue the Netflix journey into original content, the results of which have been mixed to date. The recently-released Netflix original Mudbound garnered itself an Oscar nod. The Will Smith led orc/human drama Bright was destroyed by Rotten Tomatoes. How will Past Midnight fare with the streaming service’s audience?
