Ryan Reynolds and John Krasinski are teaming up. EW has confirmed that the two are in talks to star in the fantasy comedy movie Imaginary Friends, about a man who can see and speak to — you guessed it — other people’s imaginary friends.
The movie follows Reynolds as a man who can see and talk to people’s imaginary friends, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Reynolds’ character befriends people’s forgotten imaginary friends, but when some turn bitter after being discarded and try to take revenge, he’s forced to stop them.
However, these former playthings go in a far darker direction than Jessie the Cowgirl ever did. Unloved and without the companionship they so desperately crave, some of them turn evil. And its up to Reynolds’ character to protect the world from their outpouring of malice.
Despite their frequent back and forth on Twitter, this film will mark the very first time Krasinski and Reynolds will appear onscreen together, and the anticipation among fans is palpable.
Imaginary Friends was reportedly bought by Paramount pictures and the studio is closing in on a deal to distribute it.
