Blue Rider Aids Puerto Rico Fundraising Effort Blue Rider has joined other film companies in Puerto Rico Film Friends Relief, which has raised money for the hurricane–battered island. Walter Josten and Luillo Ruiz of Pimienta Films have assembled an extended motion picture family via seven major feature films on the island including: REPLICAS starring Keanu Reeves; IMPRISONED with Laurence Fishburne, Juan Pablo Raba, Juana Acosta and Edward James Olmos; SPEED KILLS headlined by John Travolta; ANA featuring Andy Garcia, Dafne Keen, and Jeanne Tripplehorn; DRIVEN with Jason Sudeikis, Lee Pace, Corey Stoll, and Judy Greer, directed by Nick Hamm; PRIMAL with Nicolas Cage, and THE LAST THING HE WANTED with Anne Hathaway, Ben Affleck, Willam Dafoe, and Rosie Perez, directed by Dee Reese.

Keanu Reeves, Garcia and Travolta have been especially instrumental in raising funds for Puerto Rico. Six months after the hurricanes, which killed 60 people, 16% of the island, 200,000 homes and businesses,still lack electricity. This is the worst storm to hit Puerto Rico in 89 years.
