Lily Collins is starring.

Keanu Reeves has joined Lily Collins in To the Bone, the indie drama that is serving as the directorial debut of writer Marti Noxon.

Julie Lynn and Bonnie Curtis of Mockingbird Pictures will produce along with Karina Miller, who also is financing through her company Sparkhouse Media.

The script tells of a young woman’s battle with anorexia and is inspired by Noxon’s own experiences. 

Reeves will play a doctor with an unorthodox style who pushes Collins to choose life and commit to getting better.

Shooting is due to begin in Los Angeles later this week.

"Keanu has such generosity and intelligence, not to mention a warmth that I'm eager to tap into. We're all incredibly excited that he's agreed to help us bring To the Bone to life," said Noxon.
