Mark Ruffalo and Catherine Keener have joined Ryan Reynolds in the sci-fi adventure feature "The Adam Project" at Skydance and Netflix.
The Adam Project centers on Adam Reed, age 13, as he continues to grieve the sudden death of his father a year earlier, when, one night, he walks into his garage to find a wounded pilot hiding there. This mysterious pilot (Ryan Reynolds) turns out to be the older version of himself from the future, where time travel is in its infancy. He has risked everything to come back in time on a secret mission and together they must embark on an adventure into the past to find their father (Mark Ruffalo), set things right, and save the world from Catherine Keener and her diabolical plans.
The movie was originally set up eight years ago over at Paramount, during which time Tom Cruise was attached. Since then, the script has gone through several rewrites, with the most recent iteration being penned by Irreplaceable You and Banshee screenwriter Jonathan Tropper. Recently scooped up by Netflix, The Adam Project will see Reynolds once again team-up with Free Guy (2020) director Shawn Levy, and has David Ellison, Dana Goldberg, and Don Granger on board as producers.
Catherine Keener is playing the film's villain, a woman who has stolen powerful technology from Ruffalo's physicist, while Alex Mallari, Jr. (Dark Matter) plays her right hand man.
Jennifer Garner and Zoe Saldana also feature in the cast of the film, which is being produced by Skydance for Netflix. Filming is underway now in Vancouver, Canada.
