Ryan Reynolds has a reputation for starring in very distinctive projects. From Free Guy to the Deadpool film series, it is fair to say that all his films stand out in their own way. The most recent addition to this is his 2024 film, IF. Scheduled to release in May of next year, the film follows the story of a young girl who can see the imaginary friends of people who themselves might have left them behind.
While this concept on its own would gather a lot of attention, this isn’t the only reason why fans are losing their minds over this movie. The hype surrounding the film is also partly down to its stellar cast. The fantasy-comedy movie features a huge number of A-list actors, which is bound to contribute to the expectations.
Ryan Reynolds’ Film Has an Impressive Cast Line Up
IF, also known as Imaginary Friends, started strong with the names that are involved, considering it is being directed by none other than John Krasinski. Along with Krasinski, the cast features, Ryan Reynolds and Cailey Fleming, as protagonists, the latter being famous for her appearances in The Walking Dead, and Loki.
Along with these two, the movie also features some of the film industry’s finest, with Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Emily Blunt, Matt Damon, Awkwafina, Fiona Shaw, and Sam Rockwell being involved. on top of this, and perhaps what fans are most excited about, is the fact that Krasinski will be working with Steve Carell again, years after the two parted ways at the end of The Office.
Fans Have Become Very Excited About This Film Because Of This
When it comes to films featuring a huge number of well-known actors, it is only natural that they will receive a lot of attention. Avengers: Infinity War is the perfect example, considering the lineup this film featured, and how talked about it was. A recent example would also be Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer, which entered the spotlight after its cast was announced. When it comes to IF’s cast and a mini-The Office reunion because of Steve Carell’s presence, it is no wonder that fans lost it, when the trailer was released.
