As noted by various sites, however, neither Bullock nor Reynolds has signed on to star in the film, and a scheduling conflict may be an issue for the “Deadpool” actor because Paramount wants to get the ball rolling sooner rather than later.
Bullock and Reynolds previously starred in 2009’s “The Proposal”, which became a box office success, grossing over $317 million worldwide. It was the 20th highest-grossing film of 2009. The movie also earned the actress the Golden Globe Award for Best Actress – Motion Picture Comedy or Musical.
Bullock went on to star in Alfonso Cuaron’s critically-acclaimed sci-fi film “Gravity“, “Ocean’s 8” and Netflix’s original movie “Bird Box“. She’s currently filming an untitled drama film directed by Nora Fingscheidt, which is written by Christopher McQuarrie, based on the 2009 British miniseries “Unforgiven” written by Sally Wainwright. She stars as Ruth Slater, a woman who attempts to rebuild her life after serving time in prison for committing a violent crime.
As for Reynolds, he has been riding high on “Deadpool” success, leading some big-budgeted action films such as “Pokemon: Detective Pikachu“, “6 Underground” and “Free Guy“, which is scheduled for December 11 release. He is now filming Netflix’s thriller “Red Notice“, which also stars Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Gal Gadot.
