The Night Watchman: According to Variety, Keanu Reeves will star in The Night Watchman for director Spike Lee and Bob Yari Prods.

Reeves plans to begin production on the crime thriller shortly after he completes promotional duties for Warner Bros. Pictures on Constantine. That pic bows Feb. 18.

Penned by James Ellroy, the picture is the story of a disgraced cop who discovers corruption inside a police department and sets out on a mission to redeem himself.

Reeves will be seen in the upcoming Thumbsucker, which is tipped to premiere at the upcoming Sundance Film Festival. He also stars in Richard Linklater's A Scanner Darkly, the Philip K. Dick adaptation that Warners will bow next fall.
