September 10th, 2010

Keanu Reeves has locked a leading role in 'Generation Um...'.

The 'Matrix' actor will star alongside Adelaide Clemens and Bojana Novakovic in the indie drama, which has already begun shooting in New York City.

The movie tells the tale of a man and his two friends who embark on a path of self-discovery while engaging in plenty of sex, drugs and bad decisions, according to Variety.

Mark L. Mann scripted 'Generation Um...' and will direct, while Alison Palmer from Company Films will produce the project.

Jared Goldman (Solitary Man) and Nicolas Chartier (The Hurt Locker) are on board as executive producers.

Keanu, 46, has only worked on a few films in recent years, appearing in 'The Day the Earth Stood Still' in 2008 and 'The Private Lives of Pippa Lee' in 2009.

He is next attached to star in sci-fi adventure movie 'Passengers', where he plays a cryogenically frozen spaceship traveller who is awoken from slumber before any of the other people on board.
