Ryan Reynolds had an incredible 2021. His Netflix Original Red Notice topped several charts and broke records, becoming the most-streamed film on the service. Alongside Dwayne Johnson and Gal Gadot, the actor is set to return in Rawson Marshall Thurber’s upcoming sequels once again, following the unimaginable success of the previous film.
Slated for a premiere on March 11th, 2022, Reynolds will be seen working together with Stranger Things producer Shawn Levy in one of the most anticipated and iconic collaborations of the year.
Titled The Adam Project, Reynolds will be seen as the titular lead, Adam who travels back in time to confront his late father and seek answers while mourning his father’s demise. Walker Scobell is set to portray his younger self, who will work closely with the adult version to figure out certain truths.
Reynolds will be joined by Marvel actors, Mark Ruffalo and Zoe Saldana, besides an extensive cast comprising Jennifer Garner, Catherine Keener and Alex Mallari Jr. While Mark Ruffalo and Jennifer Garner are set to reprise the roles of his parents, the other character roles remain unknown.
Recently, Netflix released the first-look photos of the film, one of which shows Reynolds having a walk with Ruffalo and Scobell, as Ruffalo looks at him wistfully. Another image shows Saldana wielding a big gun while Reynolds looks on apprehensively. He is also seen looking at Garner, his mother, in one of the photos while the other shows a visibly injured Reynolds having a heart to heart with Scobell in a garage.
Talking about how the art of reconciliation is “really difficult”, Reynolds revealed how the film would touch upon the complexities of a father-son relationship. “You have this central character who has told himself a story about his own father that isn’t necessarily true,” he told Vanity Fair.
He added, “I’ve told myself stories to justify things about my father and the complicated relationship I had with him before he passed.
The Adam Project is set to premiere on Netflix on March 11th, 2022.
