The performer of the main role in the film “Free Guy,” Ryan Reynolds published a post on Twitter, in which he hinted that the Disney studio wants to shoot a sequel to this comedy thriller.
“And after three years of discussions that the “Free Guy” will be an original project (not a franchise), Disney has officially confirmed that they want a sequel,” the actor wrote.
Later, Reynolds’ post was retweeted by the film’s director Sean Levy, and he attached the phrase to the publication: “Yeah.” Thus, the cinematographer also confirmed that there would be a sequel.
However, the rest of the details about the future picture are still unknown and why the studio suddenly decided on the second part. This may be due to the high box office receipts of the tape and positive ratings of the public.
IndieWire notes that the “Free Guy” with Ryan Reynolds exceeded all expectations in popularity. For the first few days since the release in the United States (the premiere took place on August 13), the film collected 28.4 million dollars. This is 40 percent more than predicted by experts in the field of cinema.
On the review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes, viewers rated the comedy 95 percent fresh and film critics 82 percent. This is an excellent result, given that a movie or TV series is considered successful on this resource when it gets 60 percent or more positive reviews.
The “Free Guy” action takes place in a video game, where minor characters have to endure bullying from stronger ones. At some point, the weak decide to end the cruelty and save this strange world from final destruction.
Along with Reynolds, the film also starred Jodie Comer, Taika Waititi, Joe Keery, and others.
