In the middle, Matt wanted the actor of Deadpool I will review the story to get some opinions about it. As a result, two proposals came in that changed the structure of the film released last week in theaters. “He’s a great screenwriter”, assured Lieberman upon Ryan Reynolds.
“He is a smart producer. I was looking for things as a scriptwriter, as an actor, as the person who has to sell those lines and those scenes “, assured Lieberman. Thus, he remarked what was the great change that he brought Ryan for Free Guy. “In the original script, Guy was a cynical character. It started in a cynical place “, he pointed. In this context, he detailed that Ryan Reynolds said: “Guy he should be happy where he is “.
According Lieberman, this proposal gave Guy a “Much bigger bow”. He also highlighted that he had “Many good ideas”, one of which had to do with the appearance of a character from the end, with whom he has to face in order to save Free City, the fictional city that is in danger of being eliminated.
