Taika Waititi Reunites With Ryan Reynolds In FREE GUY

Filmmaker and actor Taika Waititi (‘Thor:Ragnarok,’ ‘What We Do In The Shadows’) has signed on to join the cast of ‘Free Guy,’ a video game-inspired action comedy that will reunite him with his ‘Green Lantern’ co-star Ryan Reynolds.

With Shawn Levy (‘Night At The Museum,’ Real Steel’) in the director’s chair, the Matt Lieberman-scripted project follows a bank teller stuck in his routine who discovers he’s a background character in a rather brutal open world, action-adventure video game and he is the only one capable of saving his world.

Deadline has Jodie Comer (‘Killing Eve’), Joe Kerry (‘Stranger Things’), Lil Rel (‘Get Out’) and Utkarsh Ambudkar (‘Brockmire’) co-starring.

Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter are on board to produce, alongside Reynolds and his Maximum Effort banner, Levy’s 21 Laps, and Adam Kolbrenner.
