Ryan Reynolds and John Krasinski to star in Imaginary Friends

In a bidding war against multiple film studios including Lionsgate and Sony, The Hollywood Reporter is bringing word that Paramount Pictures has successfully outbid its competitors and is in negotiations for the rights to Ryan Reynolds and John Krasinski‘s fantasy comedy movie titled Imaginary Friends. Besides starring alongside Reynolds, Krasinski will also be serving as the film’s writer, director and producer.

Imaginary Friends is being described as a Dr. Dolittle-like tale of a man who has the ability to see and talk to people’s imaginary friends, and even befriending those that have been forgotten or discarded. However, things get difficult when he discovers that some imaginary friends, who lack love and friendship, unfortunately turn to the dark side. That’s why it’s up to Reynolds’ character to save the world from those that become evil.

Krasinski gained recognition and critical acclaimed as a writer and director for his work in Paramount Pictures’ horror film A Quiet Place. He has recently wrapped up the production on the film’s highly-anticipated sequel A Quiet Place: Part II, returning as its writer, director and executive producer.

The film will be part of Reynolds’ long-list of upcoming projects such as: Michael Bay’s action thriller 6 Underground; Lionsgate’s action-comedy sequel The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard opposite Samuel L. Jackson and Salma Hayek; Shawn Levy’s sci-fi comedy Free Guy which will also star Taika Waititi, Jodie Comer and Joe Keery; and the most recent one is Apple’s newest film adaptation of A Christmas Carol which was Reynolds first high-project project to be sold in a bidding war this month.
