Keanu & Zeta to Head Lyne's Lana Turner Tale

by |

Catherine Zeta-Jones and Keanu Reeves are in talks to star in Adrian Lyne's as-yet-untitled biopic about the love affair between movie star Lana Turner and mob affiliate Johnny Stompanato ... at least that's what Variety is telling us.

WB hopes to get the project rolling early next year, contingent upon the actors' availability.

For those perhaps unfamiliar with the tale of Turner and Stompy, here's the scoop: The "drama chronicles the infamous Hollywood courtship between Johnny Stomp, a bodyguard and bagman for gangster Mickey Cohen, and movie star Turner. Their relationship ended when Turner's daughter, Cheryl Crane, stabbed Stompanato to death on April 4, 1958, in what was ruled justifiable homicide."

Director Adrian Lyne is best known for films like "Unfaithful," "Fatal Attraction," "Flashdance," "9 1/2 Weeks," "Indecent Proposal," and "Jacob's Ladder."
