Good News For Ryan Reynolds Fans (aka...Me!)


Just read some casting news today on Variety.com that caught my attention.

Why?

Well....it concerns funny, smart, handsome and talented
Ryan Reynolds (most recently seen charming the nastiness out of Sandra Bullock in The Proposal).




Did I mention handsome?

Oh yeah, I did. Hmmm....guess you can see for yourself up above.

According to Variety.com:

Ryan Reynolds has landed the coveted role of “Green Lantern,” getting the starring role in Warner Bros.' live-action film based on the DC Comics hero.

Martin Campbell will direct. The studio is still working on the picture’s budget, but production is expected to begin in January.

The news caps off a memorable summer for
Reynolds, who played Deadpool in “X-Men Origins: Wolverine,” a performance that prompted Fox to begin development on a spinoff film. Reynolds followed that by starring opposite Sandra Bullock in the romantic comedy “The Proposal,” which crossed the $100 million mark this week.

Warners and Campbell chose
Reynolds, who vied for the superhero role along with “The Hangover” star Bradley Cooper and Jared Leto. The momentum built for Reynolds in the last week, as he was the only actor whose option was extended.


The Variety article goes on to report that Ryan will next star in
Buried, a dark indie drama that will begin filming shortly in Barcelona.

Coincidentally,
Vicky Christina Barcelona is the title of the Oscar-winning flick that Ryan's lovely new wife Scarlett Johansson made for Woody Allen there last year.


If you haven't seen it yet, it's worth a rental for Javier Bardem's steamy performance alone. Yeah, yeah...Scarlett and Penelope Cruz are OK too.

Whatever.

So it seems that
Buried has Reynolds portraying a civilian contractor who is kidnapped in Iraq and awakes in a coffin, struggling against time to coordinate a rescue even though he doesn’t know where he’s buried in the desert.

Seriously? That's Ryan's next flick?

Hmmm.....

Well, it's NOT a romantic-comedy.....but it
IS hot in the desert.

Yep.

I'm guessin' those famous abs will be on display at
some point in this flick as well.




Man....do I
hate that.

Stay tuned.
