27 Aug – With the success of "Free Guy" in theatres, it is revealed that another Ryan Reynolds-starrer and Shawn Levy directorial effort, "The Adam Project" is set to be released early next year.

The two, who worked together on the aforementioned project, will have the said film streaming on Netflix in the first quarter of 2022.


Said Levy, "You're going to see a trailer this year, without question, you're going to see the movie on Netflix in the first quarter of next year. [Ryan and I] are really excited about this one. It is basically what if you could go back in time and befriend your 12-year-old self and your parents whose age you currently are."

"So it's Ryan Reynolds going back to now 2021/22 meeting his 12-year-old self and Mark Ruffalo and Jen Garner, who are his mom and dad," he added.

As Levy explained, the movie is a time travel adventure that stars Reynolds as a man who travels back in time to get his younger self to confront their late father (Mark Ruffalo).

"Obviously there's a load of action and really all the things we want from a time travel adventure movie, but it's ultimately very much a descendant of "Frequency" and "Field of Dreams". And the fun of it is very much kind of "Back to the Future"-inspired, but the heart of it is more "Frequency" and "Field of Dreams". Because imagine if you could go and have empathy for your parents now that you know what you know as an adult. Imagine being able to tell your kid self, 'Yo buddy, you're going to be okay. You're going to be okay'," he added.
