Reeves will star as a married man who is left alone for the weekend, when two young girls arrive at his home and seek to destroy his life.
The roles of the two young girls will be played by Lorenza Izzo, who just starred in Roth’s The Green Inferno, and Ana de Armas, who recently starred in Hands Of Stone
Roth spoke on landing Keanu Reeves for the lead role:
"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.”
Eli Roth made his mark with the terrifying horror film Cabin Fever in 2002 and his dark and twisted vision with the Hostel franchise.
