For the seven of you holding out for "Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure 3" -- sorry dudes.

The wheels having been turning for the past little while for Keanu Reeves' first foray behind the camera for a little while now. Over the summer, financing was coming together and Screen Daily confirms that Village Roadshow, China Film and Wanda Group will be signing the cheques for the modestly budgeted $25 million "Man Of Tai Chi."

Reeves will also star in the pic along with Tiger Hu Chen, one of the stuntmen on "The Matrix" films, in the English and Mandarin language movie that Reeves has been promising will kick exactly eighteen kinds of ass. “There’s 18 fights. We’ve timed it out. It’s about 40 minutes of fighting,” he told MTV earlier in the year. “I want to make a good, solid kung fu movie. Good story, good plot — but let’s get some good kung fu going!”

Of course, what that actual story is appears still be somewhat of a mystery. But Reeves will have plenty of time to answer questions about his movie he starts doing the press rounds for "47 Ronin" which opens on November 21, 2012. It seems for fans of Reeves delivering big action spectaculars, they will have a lot to look forward to.
