Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds To Be Reunited in MOST WANTED
Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds, along with most of the creative team behind The Proposal, will team up again on a new project for Universal according to The Hollywood Reporter. Bullock and Reynolds will reunite with director Anne Fletcher, writer Pete Chiarelli and producers David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman for the action comedy MOST WANTED. In addition, Reynolds will also exec produce the film.
Universal purchased the project over the weekend that will see Sandra Bullock star as a criminal suspect with Ryan Reynolds playing the role of an FBI agent. Reynolds is tasked with escorting Bullock to court but the two will find themselves on the same side after an ambush forces them to go on the run.
Disney Studios, the studio behind the pair’s 2009 romantic comedy hit The Proposal, originally received the first pitch for Most Wanted, but passed on the project. However after taking a brief respite, the project fielded several offers over the last week with Universal eventually winning out.
