Keanu Reeves Goes to Russia in First Trailer for Action Thriller 'Siberia'
"This is a problem, I assume?" "One of many." Saban Films has revealed an official trailer for a romantic thriller titled Siberia, one of the latest films starring the one-and-only Keanu Reeves. The film follows an American diamond merchant who travels to Russia and goes to a small Siberian town, where he falls for a woman who owns a cafe. "As their passion builds, so does the treacherous world of the diamond trade from which he is unable to extricate himself. Both collide as the American man desperately looks for escape in a world with no exit." The film's cast includes Pasha Lychnikoff, Ana Ularu, Aleks Paunovic, Veronica Ferres, and Molly Ringwald. If you're interested in this, it will be in theaters in July this summer, so not too long of a wait. Perhaps that's the best time to watch a romantic thriller set in the colds of Siberia, right?
Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Matthew Ross' Siberia, direct from Saban's YouTube:
