Jennifer Connelly joins Keanu Reeves in ‘The Day the Earth Stood Still’ remakeNovember 14th, 2007 - 8:33 am ICT by admin
Connelly is set to portray Helen Benson, the role Patricia Neal played in the 1951 original, reports Variety.
‘Speed’ star Reeves will play a humanoid alien named Klaatu, who lands on Earth with his giant robot to warn the world leaders that they must learn to live in peace, or be destroyed by their outer-space neighbours.
The film, to be produced by Erwin Stoff, will be directed by Scott Derrickson of “The Exorcism of Emily Rose” fame.
David Scarpa will script the project, and Fox has set a December start date in Vancouver.
Connelly is currently busy shooting the ensemble comedy “He’s Just Not That Into You” for New Line. (ANI)
