Reeves will explore his dark side in a new version of Robert Louis Stevenson's "The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde."

The Hollywood Reporter claims the Reeves version will be set in the modern day and called "Jekyll"… just like the BBC series set in the modern day and called "Jekyll." (Frankly, we can't see Reeves holding a candle to James Nesbitt's performance in that series.) There's no word from Universal on whether the film is connected.

Reeves, 44, is also slated to star in a live-action version of the sci-fi cartoon "Cowboy Bebop."
