Casting: Keanu Reeves Sees Tarsem's 'The Panopitcon,' Djimon Honsou Eyed For 'King Arthur' And More

Tarsem, the visually impressive filmmaker behind “The Cell,” “The Fall” and uh, “Immortals,” has a new movie brewing that will make you go “whoa.” Keanu Reeves will lead the director’s flick “The Panopticon,” which centres on “a seemingly ordinary man who receives a mysterious package containing a pre-recorded message from himself, warning that the world is about to end and only he can save it. He must race against the clock to piece together the puzzle before time runs out for mankind.” How perfectly Keanu, though we’d rather see a “John Wick” sequel.

Add Djimon Honsou to the rumor pile for Guy Ritchie‘s King Arthur flick “Knights Of The Round Table.” The actor is reportedly being eyed to play “Merlin-esque figure who trains and mentors Arthur,” and if it happens, he’ll join the cast which includes Charlie Hunnam as Arthur and Astrid Berges-Frisbey (“I Origins”) playing Guinevere.

Oh hey, Taylor Kitsch now has a girlfriend on “True Detective” —it’s Adria Arjona, and she’ll play Emily. [Deadline]
