Ryan Reynolds will produce a film based on the Home Alone films.


Reynolds will probably not appear in the film, but is involved in the project with his production house Maximum Effort, which also produced Deadpool 2.

The Home Alone films revolve around a child who is outsmarted by burglars in his home through booby traps. The first came out in 1990, with Macauly Culkin in the lead.

Filmstudio Fox said in a statement that the new film has a slightly different approach. Instead of a young child, the story is now about a twenties, who misses his plane to his winter destination. To kill the time, he starts to blow, after which he becomes paranoid about possible burglars.

In that state he sets everything in motion to make it difficult for the thieves, which comes in handy when there is actually a burglary.
