– Keanu Reeves is in talks to star in undercover drama Cartagena for 2929 Productions says Production Weekly. The film centers on an undercover agent in Colombia who gets caught in a complex plot and must elude drug dealers and international agents if he hopes to survive.

– Barry Levinson (“Wag the Dog,” “Liberty Heights”) will adapt and direct an independently-financed film version of his own coming of age novel Sixty Six says The Hollywood Reporter. Set in 1966 Baltimore on the eve of significant historical events such as the counterculture movement and the war in Vietnam, ‘Six’ follows a staffer at a local television station and also features a diner as the center of social activity.

– Director Marcus Nispel (“Friday the 13th”) is in talks to helm The Last Voyage of Demeter for Phoenix Pictures says Variety. Based on a chapter in Bram Stoker’s Dracula, the story describes the arrival of the vampire count in England on a cargo ship that has crashed into the rocks at Whitby with no crew and the dead captain lashed to the steering wheel. Stoker tells the story via the captain’s log of the voyage, which begins in Bulgaria and becomes increasingly disjointed as members of the crew disappear.

– Mike Newell (“Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire”) is in talks to direct The Lone Ranger for Disney Pictures and Bruckheimer Films reports Production Weekly.

– Jim Carrey is the leading candidate to star in the offbeat dramedy The Beaver for Anonymous Content says Risky Biz Blog. Kyle Killen’s Black List-lauded script centers on the relationship between a man and a beaver puppet he wears on his arm, which he talks to and treats as a companion

– David Slade (“30 Days of Night,” “Hard Candy”) is attached to direct the horror/psychological thriller Cold Skin for Kanzaman says Variety. Based on Albert Sanchez Pinol’s bestselling Spanish novel of the same title, the story follows a European hired to spend a year logging wind conditions on a tiny Antarctic island. The bookish young man soon discovers that he has a brutish neighbor named Gruner and the pair soon team to slaughter the humanoid killer amphibians that overrun the island each night. Gruner keeps a humanoid female looking one as a pet and after fornicating with it repeatedly, the young man tries to befriend the creatures. Things soon turn into a dark orgy of murder and beastiality that when his replacement arrives, the young man has become as feral as Gruner was before him.
