Keanu Reeves is going to have to be The One—again—in Tarsem Singh’s new project, The Panopticon. The action-thriller will star Reeves as a man, definitely not called Neo, who receives a mysterious package containing a pre-recorded message from himself warning him that he is the only one who can prevent the world from ending. Singh, who rose to fame after directing R.E.M.’s “Losing My Religion” music video before moving to feature films, has a Ryan Reynolds-fronted sci-fi drama called Selfless scheduled for release in 2015. His other credits include genre films The Immortals, Mirror Mirror, and The Fall. Reeves, most recently seen in the underworld action film John Wick, recently finished filming Eli Roth’s thriller Knock Knock, another movie that sounds a lot like something we’ve seen before.
