“Notting Hill” director Roger Michell is directing the adaptation of John Kenney’s acclaimed debut novel “Truth in Advertising,” and now there’s a lead actor in the offing too: Ryan Reynolds is in final negotiations for the tragic comedy. .
How Deadline reports, Ryan Reynolds could soon dive into the world of print advertising. The actor is currently in final negotiations for the lead role in the adaptation of John Kenney’s award-winning novel “Truth in Advertising.” It’s about Fin Dolan, who is supposed to cancel his Christmas break to work on a new ad campaign. However, when his best friend announces their engagement and his father ends up in the hospital at the same time, he begins to wonder if he is going in the right direction in life.
“John Kenney made a great adaptation of his brilliant novel and wrote a modern, clever and fun story that looks at consumer society,” said producers Lisa Wilson and Myles Nestel in an interview. Deadline, “Your script is in good hands with Roger Michell, who explored our media-obsessed world on ‘Notting Hill.’ The charismatic Ryan Reynolds is perfect for the role of the common advertising clerk trying to navigate a confusing world. “
In the near future, Ryan Reynolds will show slightly more extraordinary qualities and deliver them as Wade Wilson aka Deadpool. Tim Miller’s “Deadpool” will be released in German theaters on February 11, 2016.
