Reynolds stars as Adam Reed, a pilot who has travelled back from the future on a secret mission. Landing in 2022, he teams up with his 13-year-old younger self (Scobell) and they embark on an adventure into the past to find their father (Ruffalo), set things right, and save the world. One thing that would help the pair: figuring out how to get along.
This enjoyable-looking adventure reunites Reynolds with Free Guy director Shawn Levy, whose credits also include the Night at the Museum movies, Date Night, Real Steel, and Stranger Things (where he serves as an executive producer). The screenplay comes from Jonathan Tropper (Warrior, See, Banshee), T.S. Nowlin (Maze Runner films, Pacific Rim: Uprising), and Big Mouth creators Jennifer Flackett & Mark Levin.
The Adam Project will be streaming on Netflix from March 11th.
