Is there anything he can't do? Keanu Reeves has been showing us how it's done for years now. From the John Wick franchise to the Matrix's latest drop, the big-shot is officially unstoppable. In fact, according to a new report, he's already got his next adventure penned. Here's what we know about his upcoming role - which also has him making history.

As Deadline first revealed, the Hollywood star is currently under negotiations with Hulu for an upcoming project. But should they seal the deal, Reeves will be breaking records in the process. Titled, The Devil in the White City, the upcoming series will mark the actor's first major US television role. And you can bet he'll be coming in with a bang...

As for what to expect exactly? According to reports, the Hulu project will be based off of the book of the same name. The Devil In The White City follows the true story of two men, an architect and a serial killer, linked together by 1893's The Chicago World’s Fair. More specifically, the fair's mastermind and the evil genius who once used it as his own "Murder Castle" - "a palace built to seduce, torture and mutilate young women," as Deadline revealed. "The story takes the viewer on a tour of murder, romance and mystery in the gilded age."

While we have yet to hear word on which role Reeves would tap into, he's not the only big-name who'll be joining in on the fun. In case you forgot, back in 2010, Leonardo DiCaprio actually copped the rights to the true-crime drama. According to reports, both he and Martin Scorsese were set to executive produce the upcoming project. But while he initially envisioned The Devil In The White City on the big screen, it appears fate had other plans... Not only will DiCaprio's production be adapted into a big-budget series, but the actor will also be starring in the Hulu adaptation. Safe to say, if it's anything like we've seen before? You won't want to miss this one. Be sure to stay tuned as more details unfold.
