6 Underground: Ryan Reynolds Posts Explosive Video From The Set

Advertisements

Ryan Reynolds posted a video from the set of 6 Underground, giving fans a glimpse at the kind of action they can expect from the film directed by Michael Bay. Working from a script by Deadpool 2 scribes Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, the film will be directed by Bay and distributed by Netflix. Details regarding the plot remain scarce, but the story will apparently revolve around a group of billionaires who fake their deaths in order to become a team of crime-fighters.

Rumors recently surfaced implying that the film was actually a secret live-action adaptation of ThunderCats. The speculation was given a tad more credence than usual due to the fact that Bay has been attached to direct a ThunderCats movie since 2012. It has since, however, been debunked by numerous sources, with even Reynolds himself branding any such speculation as “ridiculous.”

A new video, posted by Reynolds on Twitter, goes a step further towards dispelling the notion once and for all. Rather than dressed in a skimpy outfit and brandishing a sword, Reynolds can be seen in traditional street clothes. Leaning against the wall, he’s seemingly in the middle of a run-of-the-mill interview, discussing the appeal of working on a Bay-directed film, when a huge car crash unfurls behind him. Maintaining an air of obliviousness, Reynolds continues hilariously undeterred with his answer.

Also set to star Corey Hawkins, Mélanie Laurent, and Dave Franco, shooting for the film has been underway in various parts of the world since August. Whether the video was officially sanctioned or simply Reynolds engaging in a spot of his trademark sarcastic humor remains unknown. One thing is for sure however, 6 Underground is almost assuredly an Earth-bound production.

The news will no doubt be a disappointment to fans of ThunderCats that were still holding out hope. Still, the video, which takes a leaf out of Tom Holland and Marvel’s playbook for Spider-Man: Far From Home, offers much to get excited about. Bay’s stock has understandably fallen in the eyes of many over the last few years, mostly because of the mindless, repetitive nature of the Transformers franchise. There are few directors, however, that can deliver action and spectacle like Bay, as evidenced by the likes of Bad Boys.

Writers Reese and Wernick have proven themselves singularly adept at blending comedy and the potential for set-pieces into crowd-pleasing packages over the last few years. With theirs and Reynolds’ penchant for self-aware humor at the center, the film could work even in spite of Bay’s worst directorial impulses. As long as he’s able to translate it fully to the screen, while bringing some of his past trademark flair to the action, and this video certainly demonstrates that it’s possible, 6 Underground could turn the tide on his critical success and prove to be one of Netflix’s best.

Ryan Reynolds Calls Thundercats Movie Rumor “Ridiculous”

Advertisements

Ryan Reynolds has become the latest person to officially deny that Netflix’s upcoming action movie Six Underground is a cover for a live-action Thundercats movie, calling the rumors to that effect “ridiculous.” Reynolds, who is starring in the upcoming film, has joined Six Underground screenwriter Rhett Reese and director Michael Bay in shooting down the rumors on their respective social media accounts. This followed a story published by IGN Middle East, that reported the rumors as legitimate news.

Written by Reese and frequent collaborator Paul Wernick (who previously worked with Reynolds on Deadpool and Deadpool 2), Six Underground will tell the story of six billionaires who fake their deaths so they can form a team of crime-fighters. In addition to Reynolds, the movie will also star Mélanie Laurent, Dave Franco, Ben Hardy, Corey Hawkins, Manuel Garcia-Rulfo and Adria Arjona. The project has already begun filming and is currently shooting in Florence, Italy.

Reynolds referred to the “amazing locales” where Six Underground is set, in a reply to Reese’s Tweet regarding the Thundercats film rumors, which is included below. Reese simply denied the rumors with a single, solitary “No.” Reynolds went one step further, with tongue firmly in cheek, and a level of sarcasm worthy of Wade Wilson himself. Reynolds evoked the name of Thundera (the home planet of the Thundercats) along with Florence and Abu Dhabi, where Six Underground is scheduled to shoot scenes in November.

The reasoning behind the rumors of the secret Thundercats movie seems to be based around several random factoids. Chief among these is the fact that Bay has been attached to direct a live-action Thundercats movie since 2012, and has previous experience adapting popular 1980s toy-lines and cartoons into full-length feature films as a director and producer on the Transformers movies. Another point in favor of the theory is that Reese and Wernick had previously worked together on the screenplay for G.I. Joe: Retaliation – another action movie based on a popular animated series and toy set. Finally, the source that confirmed the rumor was apparently the same one who confirmed that Simon Pegg had been cast in a minor role in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Unfortunately, all of this seems to be wishful thinking on the part of Thundercats fans. While Reese and Wernick could likely write a fantastic Thundercats movie and Bay would be uniquely suited to direct such a film, there are far too many photos from the set that show Six Underground to be exactly what it was advertised to be – an action movie set on this Earth, rather than Third Earth. However,the clear enthusiasm for the project may spur Warner Bros. (who currently own the film rights to Thundercats) to consider moving forward with such a film, much like how the love for the leaked test footage for Deadpool inspired Fox to move forward with making the movie. For now though, fans of the Thundercats will just have to wait.

Burt Reynolds Passes Away at 82

Advertisements



The Hollywood community has just lost another legend, with screen icon Burt Reynolds passing away at the age of 82. Reynolds was one of Hollywood’s biggest stars of the 1970s and 1980s, whose streak of being the top-grossing Hollywood star between 1979 and 1982 was so rare it hadn’t happened since Bing Crosby’s stretch in the 1940s. He will be remembered for a multitude of roles in classics including Smokey and the BanditCannonball Run and Boogie Nights.

Reynolds was born in Michigan but raised in Florida, where he became a football star at Florida State University, before his sports career ended following both a knee injury and a car accident. With his prospects for a career in the NFL dashed, he headed to New York City after graduating from FSU to pursue a career in acting. Reynolds worked steadily throughout the 1960s, with recurring roles in Riverboat, Gunsmoke and Hawk, but he truly became a star with his indelible performance as Lewis Medlock in director John Boorman’s 1972 classic Deliverance.

The news of Reynolds’ death comes from THR, with the actor’s manager confirming he passed away at the Jupiter Medical Center in Jupiter, Florida earlier this morning, although no cause of death was given. The legendary actor was getting ready to film what might have been his comeback role in Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, where he was slated to portray George Spahn, who let Charles Manson and his “family” stay at his ranch before the infamous Sharon Tate murder. There is no indication yet how, or if, this will affect production, since Reynolds was reportedly supposed to start filming his role in just a few weeks.

At the height of Reynolds’ success in 1978, he once had four movies playing in theaters at the same time, which speaks volumes about his star power, and he also became well-known for turning down a number of iconic roles. He was offered the role of Han Solo in George Lucas’ Star Wars, which made Harrison Ford a star, along with John McClane (Bruce Willis) in Die Hard and Garrett Breedlove in Terms of Endearment, a role that won Jack Nicholson his second Oscar. Reynolds later admitted that turning down the Breedlove role was the biggest mistake of his professional career. Anderson was just as famous off-camera as he was on, with his high-profile marriage to actress Loni Anderson, and his now-infamous nude cover spread for Cosmopolitan magazine in 1972, while also developing the game show Win, Lose or Draw with host Bert Convy.

It’s probably fair to say that Reynolds did it all in Hollywood, and he even had a self-deprecating sense of humor about himself, making fun of his famous toupees and even guest-starring on Archer. The star did have his fair share of ups and downs, including a few stretches where acting roles seemed to dry up, along with him filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in 1996, which forced him to sell off his properties. Still, Reynolds has always found a way to make a comeback, like in 1997’s Boogie Nights, and many were looking forward to his latest comeback attempt in Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. Still, Reynolds will go down in history as an inimitable Hollywood legend, who will be sorely missed.

Rest in Peace Burt Reynolds: February 11, 1936 – September 6, 2018
