AceShowbiz - Ryan Reynolds is working on a new movie about Disney's Society of Explorers and Adventurers theme park attraction. The "Deadpool" star is joining forces with Qui Nguyen - the writer of Disney's upcoming animated feature "Strange World" - for what is intended to be a live-action feature.
Ryan is expected to produce the film with executives at his Maximum Effort banner. The project is intended to mark the launch of a franchise.
The SEA, as the attraction is known, has a detailed mythology dating back to 16th-century Italy. It was first introduced to theme park visitors at the Tokyo Disneyland in 2001 before expanding across the globe. The attraction comes with a host of characters including Harrison Hightower III, Mary Oceaneer, and Lord Henry Mystic.
The new feature is different from the forthcoming Disney+ series from Ron Moore that is also based on the SEA. Moore's series takes place in the Magic Kingdom Universe - where the themed lands and characters of Disney's parks and classic films exist in a different reality.
Reynolds, 45, was recently described as "horrifically mean" by "Deadpool" co-star T.J. Miller - although the latter revealed that the pair had patched things up after Ryan had got in contact. Miller said, "It was really cool, he emailed me the next day. It was a misunderstanding, so I emailed him back and now it's, like, fine."
The 41-year-old star added that his comments had been "misconstrued" and was simply a tale from his time on the set of the blockbuster. He said, "It was just me telling a story from on set that I thought was weird. That was it."
