Ryan Reynolds to Team with John Krasinski for Imaginary Friends Movie

Joseph Baxter Oct 16, 2019

Ryan Reynolds and John Krasinski will co-star in a fantasy comedy about a man who can see and talk to peoples’ imaginary friends.

Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds has accrued an enviable project backlog, and former The Office regular John Krasinski isn’t doing too bad himself with his (sequel-set) horror movie, A Quiet Place, and imminently returning Amazon TV series, Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan. However, it appears that the two high-profile actors are set to collaborate for a yet-to-be-titled fantasy comedy movie centered around the concept of imaginary friends.

The untitled Imaginary Friends movie project is the brainchild of John Krasinski, who’s set to write, direct and co-star alongside megastar Ryan Reynolds, who would prospectively produce, reports THR. The project is reportedly being shopped around to studios as we speak, and, should it move forward, would be produced by Krasinski as well as Reynolds, via his Maximum Effort company.

Popcorn Frights 2019 Horror Films to Keep On Your Radar This Halloween Season (and Beyond)

  • DailyDead
Bringing a tidal wave of horror onto the shores of South Florida, the fifth annual Popcorn Frights Film Festival sliced its way into Savor Cinema back in August for nine days of eclectic scares and insightful conversations. Co-founded by Marc Ferman and Igor Shteyrenberg, this year’s Popcorn Frights featured more than 70 films (both feature-length and short form) from around the globe, including 10 world premieres of diverse stories ranging from a comic book serial killer to a dog-sized spider and new twists on Frankenstein. This year’s Popcorn Frights proved that horror has found a loving, long-term home in South Florida, and Daily Dead was lucky enough to attend the festival (and serve on its jury).

Jeff Goldstein, Warner Bros. president of domestic distribution, spends a good part of his day obsessing over a calendar.

In another era, executives like Goldstein would have spent half their time on the road in meetings with theater owners from Chanute, Kan., to Montpelier, Vt., haggling and calling in favors to secure as many screens as possible for their studio’s upcoming box office draw. Now, the biggest component of Goldstein’s job unfolds in a conference room as his team dissects a release schedule that’s become ever more competitive. These days, Hollywood studios aren’t just jockeying with each other for audiences’ attention; they’re grappling with streaming services that continue to rise in popularity. And it’s the distribution executives, tasked with bringing movies to the masses, who are experiencing these changing consumer habits most intensely.
