RYAN REYNOLDS WRAPS UP FILMING IN VANCOUVER
The Adam Project was the first film for Reynolds’s Group Effort Initiative
Arguably Vancouver’s most popular former resident (at least the past few years), Ryan Reynolds is likely preparing to leave again.
That’s because The Adam Project is wrapping up filming, according to the A-lister’s Instagram.
“Normally, at the end of a film, I’m outta there so fast, there’s a Ryan-sized hole in the wall,” Reynolds writes. “But not this time… as #TheAdamProject winds down, we had our final Q&A last week.”
The Q&A was for the Group Effort Initiative, a project Reynolds founded and funded to help Black, Indigenous and other people of colour (BIPOC) find jobs in the film industry, as those demographics are underrepresented. READ MORE
RYAN REYNOLDS THANKS VANCOUVER FILM CREW FOR SUCCESSFUL RUN OF BIPOC INITIATIVE
As filming for The Adam Project wraps up, Ryan Reynolds gave a big shoutout to the Vancouver-based film crew and a successful first run of his BIPOC initiative.
The program, called The Group Effort Initiative, was started by Reynolds last September. The goal was to bring on 10 to 20 trainees from historically marginalized groups. Applications were open to anyone over the age of 18 and Reynolds would pay for their wages, housing, and travel expenses.
“The goal of The Group Effort Initiative is to not only increase inclusion behind the scenes, but to create sustained careers beyond this initiative,” Reynolds wrote in an Instagram post. READ MORE
‘THE ADAM PROJECT’ SCREENWRITER REVEALS NEW DETAILS ON HIS RYAN REYNOLDS TIME TRAVEL NETFLIX MOVIE
Plus, screenwriter Jonathan Tropper shares what it was like working with Ryan Reynolds on the script.
If we had to pick one Netflix original movie we’re looking forward to watching, it would have to be The Adam Project. Directed by Shawn Levy, The Adam Project stars Ryan Reynolds as a man who must travel back in time to team up with his adolescent self and together, find their father (Mark Ruffalo) who has information essential to save the world. In addition to Reynolds and Ruffalo, The Adam Project also stars Jennifer Garner, Zoe Saldana, Catherine Keener, and newcomer Walker Scobell as the younger version of Reynolds’ character.
Time travel and Reynolds are an incredible movie pairing, to be sure. It’s a pairing made possible in part by screenwriter Jonathan Tropper, whose work on The Adam Project script will be seen when the movie hits Netflix. Recently, Collider’s own Christina Radish had the chance to speak with Tropper about The Adam Project during an interview primarily about the release of Tropper’s Cinemax series Banshee on HBO Max.
