Ryan Reynolds And John Krasinski To Become ‘Imaginary Friends’ In Paramount Comedy

Ryan Reynolds John Krasinski are posing for

John Krasinski's career as a filmmaker is still relatively young, but he's already embracing a time-honored Hollywood tradition by signing up to direct a high-concept Ryan Reynolds movie.

Paramount received a heavy bidding battle for the rights to "Imaginary Mates", a excessive-map comedy a few one that can be in contact with folks's imaginary chums, even those which had been forgotten after a baby grows up, per The Hollywood Reporter. With the lack of love and friendship leading some imaginary friends to turn to the dark side, it's up to Reynolds' character to save the world from the evil ones.

Along with starring in the feature, Krasinski writes and directs.

While it's not clear what role Krasinski will play in the movie, THR is reporting that Ryan Reynolds has been tapped to play the Doctor Dolittle-like character.

It is the second project for Reynolds, 42, to be bagged by a major studio in a week.

Blow for Manchester United as player 'will miss' upcoming clash against Liverpool
Pogba has been ruled out with the ankle injury that has forced him to miss five of United's past seven matches. Paul had an injury, came back, worked really hard, played a couple of games, played through the pain barrier.

As for Krasinski, the 39-year-old exceeded box office expectations with his directorial debut, 2018's A Quiet Place, in which he also starred alongside wife, Emily Blunt.

Both actors are big on the ol' breaking-the-fourth-wall in the name of comedy, so this is going to be some attractive Deadpool-cross-Jim-Halpert shit, isn't it.

Being still very, very early in the stages of development, Imaginary Friends doesn't have a timetable just yet, so we can't say for certain exactly when it will be made. After appearing in a lead role in the hit movie Detective Pikachu earlier this year, Reynolds can next be seen in the Michael Bay action thriller 6 Underground when it's released on December 13. Before selling this project to Paramount, Apple dropped some serious cash for an updated comedic version of A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens that will also be a musical.

Are you excited for this movie? The Reynolds and Krasinski would each lead.
