Further details about their characters are still being kept under wraps but both actresses are no stranger to the action genre with Garner previously starring 2003’s Daredevil and 2018’s Peppermint as well as ABC’s spy thriller series Alias. Meanwhile, Zoe Saldana gained worldwide recognition for starring in some of the highest-grossing films including Avatar and Avengers: Endgame.

The Adam Project (formerly titled as Our Name is Adam) will reportedly follow a man who must travel back in time to get help from his 13-year-old self and together must encounter their late father, who is the same age as Reynolds. This marks the second collaboration between Reynolds and Levy, who previously worked together on the upcoming action-comedy Free Guy.

The film will be directed by Shawn Levy (Stranger Things) from a screenplay written by Jonathan Tropper and David Ellison. Reynolds and Levi will both produce the action-adventure film through their respective production banners Maximum Effort and 21 Laps Entertainment. David Ellison, Dana Goldberg, and Don Granger are producing for Skydance.
