Klaatu barada nikto, dude!


Keanu Reeves has signed on to star in 20th Century Fox’s remake of THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL. THE MATRIX star will play Klaatu (played in the original film by Michael Rennie), an alien who arrives on Earth accompanied by a large humanoid robot named Gort, with a warning to world leaders that their continued aggression will lead to annihilation by species watching from afar. Klaatu is famous in part due to the phrase “Klaatu barada nikto!” used in the film and its re-use in the Bruce Campbell cult film ARMY OF DARKNESS.
