Not to be confused with Jekyll, the Keanu Reeves starrer announced last week, Abel Ferrara is taking another walk on the wild side with a re-imagining of Robert Louis Stevenson’s “The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde,” which will be contemporized and titled Jekyll and Hyde. Forest Whitaker (Repossession Mambo) and Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson (for real?) are attached to play the lead roles in the classic tale about a doctor who invents a potion that unleashes his violent alter ego. “The combination of such formidable talent in front of and behind the camera will turn this wonderful gothic story into a modern classic for a whole new generation,” said Producer Luc Roeg. Independent is handling international sales on the project, which will begin lensing in late summer.
