    Hollywood actor Keanu Reeves will star in a Russian movie about Pippi Longstocking, where he will play the girl's father, the picture's producer told Sputnik on the sidelines of the Saint Petersburg International Economic Forum.

    "[Keanu Reeves will play] one of the leading roles. He is a witch hunter," Alexei Petrukhin said.

    He specified that the movie called Pippi, expected to come out in 2019, will not follow her Swedish author Astrid Lindgren's book to a tee but will be based on its plot.

    The Matrix star's ties with Russia seem to be burgeoning. In late May, he unexpectedly arrived in Saint Petersburg to shoot a part of Matthew Ross' romantic thriller Siberia, which really pleased his Russian fans. Some even organized a quest game called "Find Keanu in Saint Petersburg".

    Many thanks @galchenokzh:#коготольконевстретишь #киануривз #☺☺☺☺☺☺☺
