Reedus strikes twice

Lands 'Deuces,' 'Eddie'

This article was corrected on April 20, 2000.

NEW YORK — Norman Reedus, soon due out in “Gossip,” has separately inked for roles in Scott Kalvert’s “Deuces Wild” and Alan Watt’s “Eddie, Kill the President.”

In “Deuces,” Reedus is starring opposite Stephen Dorff. Exec produced by Martin Scorsese and produced by Michael Cerenzie and Paul Kimatian, the drama is a negative pickup for United Artists. Brad Renfro and Fairuza Balk also star.

In “Eddie, Kill the President,” Reedus will play one of two pals who spend a crazy night facing inner fears about the future and their lives.

Imperioli may co-star

Pic is produced by Ted Demme’s Spanky Pictures, Tracy Falco and Michael Cerenzie. Michael Imperioli (“The Sopranos”) has been mentioned for the role opposite Reedus.

Reedus is also expected to be seen in “Beat,” an upcoming film about the Beat movement. He has appeared in such pics as “Six Ways to Sunday,” Joel Schumcher’s “8MM” and Bruce Wagner’s “I’m Losing You.”

Reedus is repped by ICM and Untitled Entertainment.
