Only recently, Ryan Reynolds said on his social media that he was having a bit of a break from making movies. He is quoted as saying:

“Perfect time for a little sabbatical from movie making. I’m gonna miss every second working with this obscenely gifted group of creators and artists. These days, kindness matters as much as talent. I’ve been lucky to work with folks who are flush with both.”

That was last month, this month he has signed to star in a new movie directed by John Krasinski.

The new movie, called Imaginary Friends, will be a comedy written and directed by Jim from The Office. Alongside Reynolds, it will also star Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Fiona Shaw, who is known for starring in the Harry Potter movies.

It follows Reynolds’ character as he talks to imaginary friends that other people have outgrown. He finds out that most of them are resentful that they have been forgotten. This sounds similar to the plot of Drop Dead Fred, starring Phoebe Cates and Rik Mayall.

In other news, and maybe why he wanted a break, Reynolds has bought a UK football team, a soccer team to our US Outposters. Reynolds and fellow actor Rob McElhenny bought Wrexham Football Club, also known as the Red Dragons.

Personally, I’m not into football, but I do know that Wrexham isn’t a big team. In fact, if you gave me a map of the UK, I’d have trouble finding Wrexham! It has been very strange seeing Reynolds and McElhenny on the news over here, standing in the stands of a fairly small club, watching their team lose 3-2.

He’s an odd guy.

Imaginary Friends is due to begin production next summer, for a release of Thanksgiving 2023.
