    SANTA MONICA, Calif., April 7, 2000 -- Funny Keanu Reeves doesn't look like Walter Matthau. But our favorite deadpan hunk will make like Mr. Matthau (the "Bad News Bears" years) in "Hardball," a new comedy about an inner-city Little League team that Daily Variety says Reeves will star in for Brian Robbins, the ex-"Head of the Class" kid who directed "Varsity Blues," which did not star either Reeves or Matthau, but instead featured that current "Dawson's Creek" kid.

In mid-1970s Savannah, two bright but rebellious boys, Francis Doyle and Tim Sullivan, fight boredom, hormones and discipline-heavy teachers in their quest to find something meaningful beyond the walls of their parish school. Francis is an exceptional artist, whose imaginative forays into a fictional universe of good and evil fill his notebooks with comic book imagery and create a netherworld of superhero alter egos for the two boys. Subsequently, Francis and Tim create a secret comic book depicting themselves as superheroes and their teachers as arch villains. When the ultra-strict Sister Assumpta seizes their artwork one day, the boys embark upon an obsessed trail of revenge that ultimately changes their lives.
