Ryan Reynolds may be heading back to his native Canada to team up with director Atom Egoyan for the kidnap thriller Queen Of The Night, according to THR. The film is due to shoot next February.
Based on a screenplay by Egoyan and David Fraser, there aren’t too many story details, other than the fact that Reynolds will play the father of an abducted child.
While Ryan is best known for mainstream comedy and action, he has been trying to show there’s more to him than that, with the likes of Buried, Fireflies In The Garden and Definitely Maybe. Teaming up with The Sweet Hereafter’s Egoyan may be another attempt to show off his range.
