Last year Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds made movie magic when they starred in the box office hit, The Proposal. According to EW, the duo will reunite for an action comedy called Most Wanted, not to be confused with the 1997 thriller of the same name that starred Keenen Ivory Wayans and Jon Voight. Most Wanted is being used as a tentative title, which we hope they change soon…
Not only will the new film reunite Bullock and Reynolds but The Proposal’s behind the scenes crew is also on board. Anne Fletcher is currently in negotiations to direct, while Reynolds will executive produce along with Mandeville Films. The whole gang’s here! All we need is slick way to get Betty White in the mix. According to their sources, Most Wanted originated from a pitch by Peter Chiarelli that was purchased by Universal for $1 million on Friday.
The film centers on a criminal (Bullock) being escorted to court by a U.S. Marshall (Reynolds). Both are ambushed on the way and are forced to go on the run. It smells like Jennifer Aniston and Gerard Butler’s Bounty Hunter but with less of a stench. The premises are very similar but we’re hoping there’s some type of twist in the story that separates the two.
Bullock has been on hiatus ever since her 3 film run in 2009 making this the first new project she’s officially taken on. Reynolds on the other hand — we can’t get rid of the guy! He’s currently shooting Green Lantern, which he’ll follow up with The Change-Up, a body-swapping comedy with Jason Bateman.
