Ryan Reynolds Is Set to Reboot 'Home Alone' - But Not in the Way You Imagine

Ryan Reynolds Is Set to Reboot 'Home Alone' - But Not in the Way You Imagineby 👨‍💻 Graham Pierrepoint

Home Alone is inarguably one of the most iconic US movies of the past 30 years. The film made a solid star out of Macaulay Culkin – and spun off a sequel and several straight-to-video releases without Culkin attached. The movie surrounds a young boy being left on his own at Christmas – while his family heads off on vacation without him, without knowing it. Cue two would-be robbers and Culkin setting traps to catch the ne’er-do-wells off-guard – and you have what is widely regarded as a holiday classic. Naturally, therefore, it was always prime for a reboot – isn’t everything? It seems to have been a real week or two for reboot announcements – Rugrats, Frasier, Buffy the Vampire Slayer – and now this!

Ryan Reynolds is reportedly looking to produce – and maybe even star in an R-rated remake of the movie, which instead of focusing on a young boy, will be following a 20-something who finds himself missing a flight and choosing to stay home getting high instead. The movie’s title? Stoned Alone. 5 out of 5 for creativity there – but while this all may sound like something of an extended gag, it really does appear to be on the cards. 20th Century Fox are reportedly the studio involved, with Kevin Burrows and Matt Mider having written a script. Director Augustine Frizzell is thought to be on board, too, though Reynolds’ direct involvement beyond being a producer at this stage is up for debate.

Reynolds is set to be very busy indeed – he’s set to be the voice of Detective Pikachu at Warner Bros, and will reportedly be starting work on X-Force, a spin-off of his iconic run as Deadpool, which will reportedly reuniting the actor with the likes of Zazie Beetz and Josh Brolin, who he appeared with as part of the recent Deadpool 2. From there, he’s also said to be involved with rebooting Clue for the big screen – and it’s highly likely Deadpool will appear over and over again while he remains popular – and profitable!

Alongside Dwayne Johnson, Ryan Reynolds is one of the most-employed actors in Hollywood right now – and regardless whether or not he works on stoner-based remakes of Macaulay Culkin classics, or voices electric yellow mice made popular in a series of Nintendo games, it’s very likely we’ll be seeing plenty more of him in the months to come.
