Ryan Reynolds Launches Foolproof Mint Mobile + Streaming Service
Yesterday, Ryan Reynolds announced that his mobile wireless provider Mint Mobile has branched out into the streaming world by introducing Mint Mobile +, “the world’s most affordable streaming service!” You can check out the post and promo below:
The Mint Mobile + site, which you can check out here, is entirely dedicated to Reynolds’ 2003 action comedy Foolproof. The hilarious new promotion for Mint Mobile was quickly followed up by another Tweet from Reynolds, who confirmed the new streamer would “probably be shut down by the weekend.”
Reynolds will next be seen in 20th Century Studios’ Free Guy. Shawn Levy (Stranger Things, Night at the Museum franchise) directed Free Guy from a script by Matt Lieberman written way back in 2016. In the vein of hits such as Wreck-It-Ralph, Free Guy will follow Guy, a lonely bank teller who discovers he is actually a background character in an open-world video game entitled Free City and works to prevent the makers of the game from shutting it down with the help of an avatar.
In addition to Ryan Reynolds, the cast also includes Killing Eve‘s Jodie Comer, Get Out‘s Lil Rel Howery, Stranger Things‘ Joe Keery, Thor: Ragnarok‘s Taika Waititi and Blindspotting‘s Utkarsh Ambudkar. The film acts as a reunion for Reynolds and Waititi, who previously shared the screen in the superhero film we all want to forget, 2011’s Green Lantern.
Free Guy will be produced by Reynolds, Levy, Sarah Schecter and Greg Berlanti and is written by Matt Lieberman, who is currently working on the upcoming animated reboot of The Addams Family, an in-development animated Scooby-Doo film and a remake of the 1986 hit Short Circuit.
