BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – Keanu Reeves is in Buffalo Wednesday, scouting out locations for his upcoming movie Henry’s Crime, which is set in Buffalo.
Police escorted his entourage to the site of a former Goldome Bank.
Reeves is co-producing and starring in the film and Clark says he is not the only star who will be coming into town.
The star of "The Matrix" film trilogy first visited Buffalo in September, scouting locations for a new film. His visit included tours of two jail facilities that are the target of a U.S. Justice Department lawsuit accusing the Erie County Sheriff’s Department of civil rights violations.

The screen actor stepped from a bus-limo in downtown Buffalo late this morning, apparently to scout locations for his upcoming feature film, "Henry’s Crime."
Reeves and his entourage, escorted by Buffalo police, created a stir at Main and Huron, where onlookers said they seemed to be eyeing the former Goldome Bank as a potential backdrop.
Women were particularly eager to track the actor’s latest movements. More than two dozen gathered near the corner as Reeves, in jeans, hiking boots and brown blazer, sipped coffee from a Styrofoam cup.
Two, Nicole Sheehan of Snyder and Jackie Nocera of the City of Tonawanda, worked up the nerve to break away from the other gawkers and ask the star to pose for pictures with them.
He quickly obliged. Sheehan even got in a hug before his party shooed them away.
