Cameron Diaz In Talks To Star Opposite Keanu Reeves In Apple Original Films’ ‘Outcome’ From Jonah Hill

EXCLUSIVE: After landing the coveted package last year, Apple Original Films is putting together quite the cast for Jonah Hill‘s dark comedy Outcome. Cameron Diaz is in final negotiations to co-star opposite Keanu Reeves — who is also in final negotiations — in the pic, which Hill will direct and also star in.

Co-written by Hill and Ezra Woods, Outcome follows Reef (Reeves), a damaged Hollywood star who must dive into the dark depths of his past to confront his demons and make amends after he is extorted with a mysterious video clip. An Apple Studios production, the film will be produced by Matt Dines, Ali Goodwin and Hill under their Strong Baby banner.

The film marks the latest collaboration for Hill and Apple Original Films; they are also developing a Grateful Dead biopic with Martin Scorsese’s Sikelia Productions, to be directed by Martin Scorsese and written by Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski. Hill is starring and producing under Strong Baby with Dines and Goodwin.

After taking a long break from acting, Diaz, known for her roles in such hits as Bad Teacher, The Mask and There’s Something About Mary, is making a strong return, starring this year in Netflix action comedy Back in Action opposite Jamie Foxx. Outcome will mark her first role since Sony’s Annie in 2014.

Since then, Diaz has still been busy on other fronts when she added author to her list of accomplishments with the 2014 publication of the New York Times bestseller The Body Book: The Law of Hunger, the Science of Strength, and Other Ways to Love Your Amazing Body, followed by The Longevity Book: The Science of Aging, the Biology of Strength, and the Privilege of Time in 2017. In 2020, Cameron and serial entrepreneur Katherine Power launched Avaline, a collection of organically farmed wines.

Diaz is repped by LBI Entertainment CEO Rick Yorn.
