Ryan Reynolds on next `Free Guy` film: Does everything have to be a sequel?
Hollywood star Ryan Reynolds has cast doubt on the long-awaited sequel to his 2021 action comedy film ‘Free Guy’ which proved to be a success upon release.
According to Variety, an American media company, Reynolds was seen chatting with his ‘Deadpool 2’ co-star Rob Delaney at the four-day Just for Laughs comedy festival. The actor was asked if he is planning a sequel to any of the films he has produced, including ‘Free Guy’.
“There’s a possibility of a ‘Free Guy’ sequel, which would be fun… I’d love that. But also, like, does everything have to have a sequel? I don’t know. Sometimes it does. It’s okay to just do a movie and kick ass and then everybody goes home,” Reynolds replied.
“So you know, there’s a little bit of a push and pull, resisting the urge to immediately say, ‘Oh, making a sequel will validate the first’. No, the first movie validates the first. And then you can. Leave it at that. So I don’t know, we’re still talking about it,” Reynolds continued, Variety reported.

Amid widespread controversy, Reynolds’ role in the widely panned 2011 film Green Lantern inevitably came up, and the actor said it suffered from “too much time, too much money.”
“There were just too many people spending too much money, and when there was a problem, instead of saying, ‘Okay, let’s stop spending on special effects and think about character. How do we change this big spectacle thing? Can — it’s not working at all — with something that’s character-based?” And that was never — the thought was never to do that,” he explained, according to Variety.
