Perhaps this one will work, Ry.
Poor Ryan Reynolds hasn’t had a hit in so long, some people are starting to think that, maybe, he should call Chris Brown for coffee.
R2 – who has The Captive coming up (a film that got quite a critical beating at Cannes earlier this summer) – will try his luck with a project that has a lot of ingredients that usually work: a Kevin Costner CIA thriller.
Reynolds will join the Cost, Gary Oldman (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes), and Tommy Lee Jones in Criminal, which – get this – will focus on an unpredictable and dangerous prisoner who gets an informational download (the memories, secrets, and skills of a dead operative...what could go wrong!) into his head.
Will he play the young’un that all the old-timers are after or the newbie lawman that helps track down the titular bad guy down? I dunno.
All I know this one might put the one Sexiest Man Alive’s career back on track.
