Ryan Reynolds And Shawn Levy Reteaming For Long-Developing Time Travel Movie

Formerly Circled By Tom Cruise

The power of ZOOM meetings is that Ryan Reynolds continues to rack up work during quarantine. Not only does he have a Dragon’s Lair movie coming up, but now we know he’ll reteam with Free Guy director Shawn Levy on an upcoming sci-fi film.

This one is interesting because the untitled movie is hardly new. Formerly titled Our Name is Adam, it’s been making the rounds in Hollywood for years and had Tom Cruise eyeing the lead at one point.

Now with Reynolds attached, THR says the story follows “a man who must travel back in time to get help from his 13-year-old self. Together, they encounter their late father, who is now the same age as Reynolds.” T.S. Nowlin wrote the original script which is now being rewritten by Jonathan Tropper, who previously penned This is Where I Leave You for Levy to direct.

Assuming the world returns to some state of normalcy, the plan is to shoot later this year.
