Jim Belushi to join Keanu Reeves, Renée Zellweger’s “The Whole Truth”

PanARMENIAN.Net - Jim Belushi will join Keanu Reeves, Renée Zellweger, Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Gabriel Basso in the courtroom drama “The Whole Truth”, directed by Oscar nominee Courtney Hunt, TheWrap reported.

The film will follow Reeves as defense attorney Richard Ramsay, who faces a tough case defending seventeen-year old murder suspect Mike Lassiter (Basso). The evidence against him is substantial: a knife with his finger prints and a near confession. On top of that, Mike hasn't spoken a word since the day of the crime.

With no information from his client and little to work off of otherwise, Ramsay enlists the help of Janelle (Mbatha-Raw), a young lawyer determined to find out the truth about what happened that day. Belushi will play Mike's father and Zellweger plays his mother.

Production kicks off this week in New Orleans.
