The Weinstein Company and its affiliate studio Radius-TWC has acquired the rights to two Keanu Reeves movies at Cannes, Man of Tai Chi and Passengers.

Radius-TWC acquired Man of Tai Chi, which serves as the actor's directorial debut. The story, set in modern-day Beijing, follows a young martial artist (Tiger Hu Chen) who finds himself in the middle of a lucrative underground fight scene, where he must compromise his own morals to get out alive. Keanu Reeves co-stars alongside The Raid: Redemption's Iko Uwais and Jeremy Marinas. Here's what Keanu Reeves had to say about his first directorial effort landing at Radius-TWC.

"I could not hope for a better home than Radius-TWC for Man of Tai Chi. Their passion, understanding and support of the film is what a filmmaker wishes for in bringing their storytelling to the widest possible audience."

The Weinstein Company picked up Passengers, starring Keanu Reeves and Reese Witherspoon, before production begins. The studio plans on a wide release sometime in 2014.

Jon Spaihts (Prometheus) wrote the screenplay, which centers on spacecraft on a century-long journey to a distant planet. When one of the passengers' (Keanu Reeves) sleeping pod malfunctions, he awakens 90 years before everyone else on board, leading him to wake up a woman (Reese Witherspoon).

Brian Kirk, best known for his work on HBO programs Boardwalk Empire and Game of Thrones, is directing Passengers, although it is not known when production will begin.
