Updated August 7, 2021: Free Guy has gotten closer now and we know quite a bit more!
Free Guy the movie poster is action-packed and ready to go with Reynolds playing a much more subdued (dare we say nice) role than we’ve grown accustomed to! But like they say ‘…a picture is worth a thousand words’ and this could be proven yet again based on what we are hearing.
Shawn Levy’s Free Guy the movie now has the stunt coordinator from Hobbs and Shaw and the Kingsman cinematographer onboard. The 20th Century Fox movie will mark Levy’s return to film since ‘Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb’ in 2014 after a longish stint doing shows like Stranger Things.
