December 09 : The first official trailer for the video game action-comedy Free Guy is out, starring Ryan Reynolds in the lead role as a blissfully oblivious NPC who fulfills his background role in a Grand Theft Auto-style game until he questions his purpose and, naturally, becomes a hero that saves his virtual world.
Free Guy is directed by Shawn Levy, from a screenplay by Matt Lieberman and Zak Penn, and a story by Lieberman. It also stars Jodie Comer, Joe Keery, Lil Rel Howery, Utkarsh Ambudkar, and Taika Waititi.
In the open world video game Free City, an amalgamation of Grand Theft Auto and Fortnite, Guy (Reynolds) is a non-player character (NPC), working as a bank teller. Thanks to a code developed by programmers Milly (Comer) and Keys (Keery) inserted into Free City by the publisher Antoine (Waititi), Guy becomes aware of his world being a video game, and takes steps to make himself the hero, creating a race against time to save the game before the developers can shut it down.
The film is scheduled to be released on July 3, 2020 by 20th Century Fox.
