Ryan Reynolds to star in sci-fi action comedy

Washington: ‘Deadpool’ star Ryan Reynolds is all set to star in an upcoming sci-fi action comedy, ‘Free Guy’.

For the film, he will be teaming up with ‘Night at the Museum’ director Shawn Levy, reports Deadline. Set up at 20th Century Fox, the movie is written by Matt Lieberman.

The sci-fi comedy is about a man (to be played by Reynolds) that realises he is a character in a video game. With the help of an avatar, he tries to prevent the makers of the game from shutting down his world.

Apart from this, the 41-year-old is slated to star in Michael Bay’s ‘6 Underground’, and is voicing the beloved Pokemon mascot in ‘Pokemon: Detective Pikachu’, and a film about the board game, ‘Clue’. He is also set to play Deadpool again in the ‘X-Force’ movie.
