Reynolds and John August (“Big Fish) have been tapped by the streamer to co-write the comedy “Upstate.” Reynolds will star and executive produce the feature; August will also serve as executive producer.
The duo previously worked together on “The Nines.”
This isn’t Reynolds’ first alliance with Netflix. He also stared in “6 Underground” and co-stars with Gal Gadot and Dwyane Johnson in the upcoming “Red Notice.”
No word on what “Upstate” entails. August also wrote the book series “Arlo Finch” and “Summer Lovin,” a “Grease” prequel, for Paramount. On the movie front, he wrote the live-action “Aladdin.”
Maximum Effort, Reynolds’ production company, will produce “Upstate.”
