Reeves will play the title character John Rain, a Japanese-American assassin who makes his killings look like natural deaths.

Chad Stahelski, Reeves’ Matrix stunt double, and David Leitch, who did stunt work in Reeves’ 2005 film Constantine, will executive-produce along with Reeves and Eisler, according to Deadline. The project will be distributed and produced by Slingshot Media and will serve as the fledgling company’s launching pad. A writer has not yet been hired.
