Keanu Reeves is joining the dramatic cop thriller Daughter of God, which will mark his fourth go-round with producer Cassian Elwes. The duo worked previously together on Eli Roth’s horror thriller Knock, Knock, 2010’s Henry’s Crime and 2012’s Generation Um…. Daughter of God follows a police detective, played by Reeves, who investigates the truth behind his partner’s death, while a young Latina woman, played by Ana de Armas, experiences strange happenings. This also marks the second time that Reeves and de Armas have starred alongside each other after Knock, Knock. Gee Malik Linton wrote Daughter of God and will also direct with Fortitude International kicking off sales at the Toronto Film Festival today. Linton wrote the upcoming Solaris Entertainment martial arts, Hong Kong crime feature The Seventh Swords, co-directed by Chuck Russell and Yuen Woo Ping. Principal photography is scheduled to start in November. Reeves, Linton, and Robin Gurland are producing the picture, with Elwes and Daniel Grodnik serving as executive producers. CAA and Elwes are co-repping domestic rights. Grodnik is co-financing Daughter. Elwes is busy at TIFF this week handling domestic sales on the Kevin Costner drama Black and White as well as the feature Shelter with UTA. Fortitude was launched earlier this year by Nadine de Barros, Robert Ogden Barnum, and Daniel Wagner. The film finance-sales company is handling James Ponsoldt’s The End of the Tour starring Jesse Eisenberg and Jason Segal.
