A cunning serial killer (Keanu) lures a former FBI agent (Spader) out of retirement in a cat-and-mouse game, providing him with clues as to the next victims, challenging the man who spend eight years trying to catch him to finally succeed. 

Joe Charbanic (the director and co-screenwriter) previously shot documentary footage of Keanu's band Dogstar that ended up on the band's enhanced debut CD Quattro Formaggi.

Shot on location in Chicago. The title of this film was changed from Driven to The Watcher in May 2000. 

Gossip: We hear that Keanu refuses to do publicity for this film.

There was some gossip that Keanu was spotted in Yuma, Arizona in May shooting scenes for this movie. Those rumors turned out to be false.

There is some behind the scenes effects footage at: Hollywood On Set. (Still listed as "Driven.")
