Free Guy Sequels Are Coming
It looks like the movie about Ryan Reynolds’ video game Free Guy is getting a few sequels. This was stated by the head of the studio 20th Century Studios Steve Asbell. Hollywood Reporter that “more Loose Guy films” are part of the company’s plans for the future.
In an interview, Asbell stated bluntly: “We have more free guys. movies are coming. We will be very busy.”
Asbell mentioned previously, unannounced Free Guy sequels as part of a wider discussion about what’s next for 20th Century Studios. Asbell also mentioned that there are several more Avatar movies ahead, with the first coming out this December and not being delayed.
Before that, Free Guy director Shawn Levy spoke to GameSpot about some of his ideas for the Free Guy sequel. One of his ideas is to have Ryan Reynolds’ protagonist jump between popular game worlds. “I would love to see him in Minecraft,” he said. “I would love to see him in Call of Duty. I feel like the possibilities, comedy and otherwise, both in terms of comedy and action, are endless. It’s very nice to think about it.”
Free guy earned over $330 million worldwide in 2021, so it’s not hard to see why the 20th Century is moving forward with multiple sequels. In addition to Reynolds, the original film stars Jodie Comer and Taika Waititi. It was also generally well-received by critics.
