New Report Claims that Ryan Reynolds Will Lead the Upcoming Rainbow Six Movie
Ryan Reynolds has an impressive acting resume, most recently hailed for his hilariously accurate portrayal of everyone’s favourite Merc with a Mouth, Deadpool. With talk of the Rainbow Six movie going in circles for years now, it appears that the team may be ready to progress with the film and with that comes the potential casting of Reynolds himself as the lead.
According to a new report from Deadline, producer Akiva Goldsman looks to take the helm with an eye on Ryan Reynold’s for the film’s lead role. As this project aims to successfully recreate the world that Tom Clancy has built around infamous mercenary, and ex-Navy Seal, John Clark, further details of the movie have yet to be disclosed at this time. With Goldsman set to produce this endeavour, it is reported that the Deadpool star will be assuming the role of Clark himself.
Ubisoft made the announcement previously that there were six movies in the works to reflect their popular franchises, as seen with the latest Assassin’s Creed film that hit theaters last year.
As far the Rainbow Six movie, not much else is known at this time in terms of a full cast or even a director.
