KEANU Reeves is attached to star in the new romantic thriller Siberia.

The film will focus on an American diamond trader named Lucas (played by Reeves), who goes to Russia to meet with his Russian partner, Pyotr, to sell blue diamonds.

However, when Pyotr goes missing, Lucas ventures deep into Siberia to find him and the diamonds, only to find Katya, a local cafe owner, with whom he is drawn into a steamy affair.

Scott B. Smith (A Simple Plan) penned the script, while Matthew Ross – of Frank & Lola fame – will direct. As yet, no further casting has been announced.

Reeves will next be seen in the keenly-anticipated John Wick: Chapter 2 and sci-fi thriller Replicas with Alice Eve. He also starred in To The Bone, which debuted at Sundance.
