Ryan Reynolds in still from the Free Guy sequel



Ryan Reynolds videogame movie Free Guy seems to be doing the business in the States (earning $26 million from 4,165 theatres in North America on its opening weekend), so it seems a sequel in on the cards, as revealed by Reynolds in a slightly snarky tweet, confirmed by the director, Shawn Levy, with a “Yuuuuuuuup.”

In Free Guy, Ryan Reynolds plays a bank teller who discovers he is actually a background player in an open-world video game and decides to become the hero of his own story…one he rewrites himself. Now in a world where there are no limits, he is determined to be the guy who saves his world his way…before it is too late.

Free Guy also stars Jodie Comer, Joe Keery, Lil Rel Howery, Utkarsh Ambudkar and Taika Waititi, and is directed by Shawn Levy, from a screenplay by Matt Lieberman and Zak Penn.

Free Guy is in cinemas now.
