Ryan Reynolds sells Free Guy merch ahead of trailer release in new video
Ahead of the official trailer’s release tomorrow, a new Free Guy teaser for 20th Century Fox and Walt Disney Pictures’s forthcoming action-comedy film has been released, featuring the cast with lead star Ryan Reynolds as he tries to sell his character’s merchandise. Featuring Jodie Comer, Joe Keery, and Lil Rel Howery, you can check out the video in the player below!
Shawn Levy, who vacated the director’s chair for the long-in-development Uncharted movie, 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 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.
The film is set to hit theaters on July 3, 2020 by Fox and Disney.
