Keanu Reeves Facing 'Jekyll And Hyde' Competition
Reeves is working on a new adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson's 1886 novella The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, tentatively titled Jekyll, which is being masterminded by movie giant Universal Pictures.
But it's not the only Jekyll and Hyde tale heading to cinemas - Whitaker and 50 Cent are set to play the lead roles in a similar project which will be helmed by director Abel Ferrara.
The movie is due to begin shooting this summer, according to Variety.com.
Stevenson's well known story follows a doctor who invents a potion that unleashes his violent alter-ego. Past versions of the lead role have been played by a long list of Hollywood stars including Michael Caine, Kirk Douglas, and John Malkovich.
