and craft-conscious talents, has collaborated with such acclaimed directors as Francis Coppola,
Gus Van Sant, Taylor Hackford, Sam Raimi, Bernardo Bertolucci, Ron Howard and Lawrence
Most recently, Reeves rocked the silver screen with the supernatural thriller Constantine.
He can also be seen this summer in the feature adaptation of Philip K. Dick's Novel, A Scanner
