Hollywood- Keanu Reeves is set to make his own film as the director and star of "The Passion of The Buddha," a story depicting the "ecstactic passion" and "sexual energy" of Buddha's life before reaching "Nirvana."
Bolstered by the immense success of "The Passion of the Christ," by Mel Gibson, Reeves is said to be "inspired."
Not much is known yet but Reeves is said to have been on a pure meat and dairy diet to achieve the weight requirements of playing Buddha on film.
Reeves starred in another film on the life of Buddha, called "Little Buddha" in the 1990's, but called it artsy-"crap." "I'm going to make a film that really shows what he went through in his life," Reeves declared.
There has been no official reaction from any of the world Buddhist organizations.
