Last weekend at Sundance Eli Roth premiered his newest film Knock Knock starring, you guessed it, Keanu.
From what I heard the film isn’t like Roth’s typical blood/gore work and more a suspense thriller where two seemingly innocent girls reek havoc on a married man’s life.
I also excited to see Reeve’s in a different role, as well, being the victim instead of the gallivant hero. How will he handle himself and what is he going to do to get out of this situation.
My trusty friend and amazingly talented filmmaker, Mike Oh, was at Sundance (and also at Slamdance screening his film Red Luck, which is fantastic and should see) and saw a screening of the film and said it was great.
I trust his opinion and wait patiently for the Knock Knock of another Keanu film.
As you may know I’m a little obsessed with Keanu Reeves and might have written a musical about him. So, why not make this year the year of Keanu! and finally get my musical finished and on stage.
I’ve been working on this musical since 2010 and think it’s time to release the weirdness that is my brain to the masses, in hopes that the masses can handle it. Here’s a little sneak peek with one of the songs called “50 MPH Love Song”:
So, I am here to declare to you to be on the look out for Keanu! The Musical, hopefully, coming to a stage near you.
And please feel free to bother me and ask me how the musical is going because it’ll put my butt into high gear!
Keanu is back and hopefully with a musical!
California has been in a three year drought and yesterday Mother Nature was trying to make up for it with a storm of the year.
No one could get out of the rain, not even Keanu who waiting outside, in the rain for the wrap party of a movie he was in. Of course he was super chill and cool about it and wasn’t afraid of getting a little wet.
So, don’t fret about the rain and be like Keanu and ENJOY the rain!
What’s a better way to celebrate one of our beloved actors (at least one of mine) in a zine form.
What I’m looking for from you:
One of a kind illustration/Artwork that’s high quality images
Music or Lyrics
Cats Dressed up as Keanu characters
Crossover Keanu fiction
I would like to get theses work by the end of the month and compile the Zine by the first week of December. I know that’s not a lot of time but I thought it might get some of your butts into high gear! So, please help me out and send me your work: firstname.lastname@example.org
Where it all began…this little notebook I bought for, maybe, a dollar three years ago. I don’t know the exact date that I started writing this but you can tell it’s been a while based on the fading pencil lines on the first page.
In a perfect world I would be done with this musical. But alas there’s still more work to do and it’ll just take some time and that’s ok!
It is nice, thought, to look back. Even at embarrassing writings/moments like this fan letter I wrote to Mr. Reeves. I haven’t read it because I am sorta embarrassed but I thought you should all see it to know the passion I have for this project.
It shows how far I’ve come and gets me excited to see the further developments to come down the road. Maybe one day I’ll send this to Keanu but for now my dear fans get to enjoy this moment.
If you’ve been reading this site you know how excited I get for anything “New” Keanu. So, you can only imagine the thrill of excitement that washed over me when I found out that there was a Nerdist Podcast Interview with Mr. Reeves himself.
I absolutely LOVE the Nerdist and felt that it was too good to be true that they got him on. Granted it was only a half hour, unlike their normal hour and a half interviews, Chris Hardwick hit all the important questions and even got out some good laughs.
You should take a listen!
Nerdist Podcast: HERE
My greatest takeaway from this interview is Keanu says he wants to be in a musical! Even though he says a big “romantic type” musical he still needs to become aware that I can give him what he wants!
So, I just ask all my readers and Keanu fans to spread the word about Keanu! The Musical. It would be nice to have him aware of this beautiful story about his life and if he wants to star in it, that’s fine by me!
Well, to normal people who haven’t been obsessed with Mr. Reeves for the past four years may not have seen Keanu around as much. Sure he did some films here and there like Man of Thai Chi and 47 Ronin but something was missing from those, that little Keanu flair and charm that makes him, well, him.
That’s where John Wick stands out above the rest. Not only does it deliver on non-stop action with just the right amount of violence but the dialog and story really put the movie right where it needed to be. Keanu kicking ass.
Derek Kolstad knew what he was doing when he wrote this script. There was just enough story to capture our interest and he never delved too far in to the backstory allowing the audience to piece it together for themselves, which I appreciated. He also knew the perfect timing to pull out the big guns and make the typical “action movie one liners” that really stuck their landing when said AND some great subtitles (that’s all I’m going to say about it).
And don’t get me started on the cast! Wow! Not only was Keanu perfect for this role he was also surrounded by a star studded ensemble. From Willem Dafoe to John Legizamo this movie hit gold with their cast.
And of course Keanu brought all the right moves and I can say for sure.
With the hype of his new movie, John Wick coming out this week Keanu decided to reach his fans the one way he knows how, email blast!
Full article here.
Though he’s been branching out to other forms of social media like Reditts – Ask Me Anything (for the kids) he knows what we truly want in this world of new weekly apps and constant updates and interruptions in life. We just want something classic. A blast from the past. Something normal we can grasp. That’s why an email blast from him makes sense.
Keanu knows all and what we want even before we know.
So. Don’t fuck with Keanu or he’ll blast you. Email style.

This just proves how much of a nice guy Keanu is and I love that he does this as his social media/promotion for his upcoming films (ps John Wick comes out Oct 27th). He does it, and does it well.
Even though there was no mention of the musical there were still interesting, fun questions like how it was to work with George Carlin, Bill and Ted 3, and the secret to happiness.
He also talks about meeting Patrick Swayze for the first time.
All this confirms he’s just a nice guy and one of these days I hope we will be friends!
It’s your time friends. Your time to spread the word to the man himself, Mr Keanu Reeves. It’s time to let him know there is a musical out there about him and his greatness called Keanu! The Musical.
The time has come thanks Reddit to allow us to “Ask Keanu Anything” and why else wouldn’t I try but I’m only one person so that’s why I need your help! My east coast friends,l and early bird west coasters let’s gather together and have him become aware of the beauty that awaits him!
The hours are upon us!
