Though the Keanu Reeves movie on everyone’s mind right now is probably John Wick: Chapter 2, and understandably so, as it premiered an epic first trailer back at New York Comic Con, the actor has one more film coming up before that: courtroom drama The Whole Truth.
Directed by Courtney Hunt, the movie sees Reeves play Ramsay, a defense attorney who tries to build a convincing case for a teenager named Mike (Gabriel Basso), who’s accused of killing his wealthy and abusive father (Jim Belushi). All signs point to the kid, who pretty much confesses to the murder, but is it because he’s protecting his mother Loretta (Renée Zellweger)? There are many layers to the intriguing mystery, and Ramsay must to get to bottom of it if he hopes to win the case.
At the recent LA press day for the film, we sat down with Reeves and Zellweger to talk about good, old-fashioned courtroom dramas, the key to playing their characters, what their favorite courtroom movies are and more. Plus, Reeves gives us some hints as to what we should expect from the John Wick sequel.
Hear what they had to say in the video above and be sure to catch The Whole Truth when it hits theatres this Friday!
