Keanu Reeves — director and star of "Man of Tai Chi" — is Moviefone’s Guest Editor from October 28 – November 1. Watch for exclusive features from him throughout the week. Below, the actor reveals the roles he wants to play, wishes he could have played, the directors he would have loved to have worked with, and one genre he hasn’t tackled yet (but would like to).

Going Shakespeare
I wish I could have played the role and directed a film version of Macbeth.
Tragedy With a Dash of Comedy
Also, I’d like to do a romantic musical, a ’60s French new wave inspired romantic musical with tragedy … romantic tragedy … impossibly romantic love and tragedy — with comedic sprinkles.
The Talented Departed
I think of directors who have passed away whom I would love to have had the chance to work with — Capra, Satyajit Ray, Kubrick, David Lean. I also think of Godard and Kurosawa.
A Genre Unexplored
And, I’d love the chance to do a Western.

Keanu Reeves’s "Man of Tai Chi," currently available via VOD, VUDU, iTunes, and Amazon, hits theaters November 1.
