A very ironic situation, underlines the actor, because the film makes fun of blockbusters with sequels.
“EEEEET after 3 years to present Free Guy as an original project, Disney has just confirmed that they want a sequel. Woo hoo !! #Irony.” It is through this message that Ryan reynolds, quickly retweeted by director Shawn Levy, announced the good news: their comedy set in a video game universe should soon be entitled to a number 2. The actor insists on the irony of this announcement, knowing that the film multiplies the jokes on the after-effects of useless / failed blockbusters.
