It looks like Keanu Reeves fans have to be extra patient because the actor’s much-awaited superhero movie Past Midnight won’t be arriving on Netflix anytime soon.

Joe Russo, who is producing the film with his brother Anthony, has recently revealed that Past Midnight is still in development despite being announced almost two years ago. “Past Midnight’s still in a very formative stage. So it’s probably not best to talk about it yet,” Joe said in an interview with Inverse.

While the Russo brothers didn’t offer any plot details, Joe pointed out that the movie, described as a new type of vigilante superhero story, has a “fascinating script.”

Dope director Rick Famuyiwa will direct Past Midnight from a script penned by veteran video game writer TJ Fixman. When the film was first announced in March 2018, Deadline reported that Netflix won out on the script in a hot contest.

Since it is unclear how long fans will have to wait until Past Midnight becomes available on Netflix, Keanu Reeves supporters can meanwhile catch the John Wick star in The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run, premiering on May 22nd, 2020, and in the sci-fi comedy Bill & Ted Face the Music, set to open in theaters on August 21st, 2020.

Meanwhile, the Russo Brothers, following the box-office success of the Avengers: Endgame, have the crime action drama movie 21 Bridges, hitting theaters this November 22nd. Produced by the Russo Brothers, the Brian Kirk-directed film stars Black Panther actor Chadwick Boseman as Andre Davis — an embattled NYPD detective thrust into a citywide manhunt for a pair of cop killers.
