Only Ryan Reynolds (Deadpool) would produce a spin-off spoof version of Home Alone centering around a space cowboy who smoked too much weed and couldn’t go on his skiing trip. This sounds like I’m making it up, but the Deadpool star is seriously doing this. We all love the movie Home Alone starring Macaulay Culkin, but the film was made in 1990 and considering kids now have cell phones at the age of 5, a reboot in 2018/2019 wouldn’t make much sense. Reynolds’ solution? Pot.
According to Esquire, the film is called ‘Stoned Alone’ and its described as
“… a twenty-something weed growing loser who misses the plane for his holiday ski trip. He makes the best of things by getting high. Paranoia sets in and he believes he hears someone break into his house. Turns out thieves have broken in. Fully stoned and fueled by paranoia, he tries to thwart the thieves and defend his castle.”
Ryan Reynolds will produce the movie and Augustine Frizzell will direct it. There’s no news yet of who will be playing our space cowboy, but if there is not Steve Miller’s ‘Joker’ playing as the theme song, I’m considering this film a wash. Only time will tell if this will be actually hilarious or incredibly ridiculous. Knowing Reynolds, it’ll probably be both!
