Ryan Reynolds will be hearing ‘Voices’ in new psychological thriller

After his stunning performance in Rodrigo Cortes excellent thriller Buried, Ryan Reynolds has not exactly set the box office alight since. The Green Lantern and The Change Up were major flops, and Safe House did not fair any better. However, with films like R.I.P.D and Highlander on the way, there is still hope. Today’s news of Reynolds heading into more darker territories is even more positive news.

Deadline reports that Reynolds is now in talks to appear in Persepolis director Marjane Satrapi’s latest film, Voices. The psychological thriller has been written by Paranormal Activity’s Michael R. Perry, and the script made the Black List ( the annual list of the most popular unproduced screenplays in Hollywood).

Mandalay Vision will finance the film, with Mandalay’s Matthew Rhodes and Cathy Schulman producing with Vertigo’s Roy Lee and Mandalay Senior Vice President Adam Stone. The plot synopsis for the film is a little strange, but it sounds quite interesting:

“Reynolds is in talks to play Jerry Hickfang, a lovable but strange bathtub factory worker who yearns for the attention of a woman in accounting. When their relationship takes a sudden murderous turn, Jerry’s evil talking cat and benevolent talking dog lead him down a fantastical path that ultimately brings him to salvation”

A keen enthusiast and collector of all horror and extreme films. I can be picky as i like quality in my horror. This doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a classic, but as long as it has something to impress me then i'm a fan. I watch films by the rule that if it doesn't bring out some kind of emotive response then it aint worth watching.
