Ryan Reynolds is teaming with John August to co-write and executive produce new Netflix film Upstate.
Upstate is being kept secret for now, with Deadline only able to learn that it’s an original comedy. August, who has written the likes of Big Fish and Disney’s live-action Aladdin, may end up directing this one, but there’s no word yet.
Reynolds recently worked with Netflix on the action movie 6 Underground and has been shooting the streamer’s Red Notice with Gal Gadot and Dwayne Johnson.
Reynolds is also starring in Lionsgate’s upcoming The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard with Samuel L. Jackson and Salma Hayek.
