Ryan Reynolds Becomes an Unlikely Hero in New Free Guy Trailer
20th Century Studios has released a brand new trailer for Shawn Levy’s forthcoming action-comedy film Free Guy, featuring new footage that provides us with a better idea of the film’s plot. In addition, a new teaser has also been revealed, featuring the main cast led by Ryan Reynolds as they try to think of alternative new release dates. Originally scheduled for a July release, the film is still set to hit the theaters on December 11, 2020. Check out the videos below!
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.
