Ryan Reynolds Reportedly Turning A Reddit Story Into A Movie

Ryan Reynolds Reportedly Turning A Reddit Story Into A Movie

Ryan Reynolds is a man of many talents: acting, producing and screenwriting while still finding time to work in a pizza place with his two best mates and inspire the 1990s most grammatically incorrect song. Go google it.

Now, his latest project is right out of left field: he's reportedly producing a film based on a Reddit fan fiction horror story.

The story in question is 'The Patient Who Nearly Drove Me Out of Medicine', a sleeper hit on the famous subreddit /nosleep, where the internet's most terrifying homemade horror stories are told.

According to author Jasper DeWitt, 'The Patient Who Nearly Drove Me Out of Medicine' tells the story of 'an ambitious young doctor attempts to treat a mystery patient on the psych ward whose condition has bedevilled all previous comers, only to discover that the secrets surrounding this patient's care could cost him his sanity'.

Sounds like the perfect subject matter for a film, and given the overwhelmingly positive reaction to the story on Reddit, there'll probably be an audience for it as well.

Sounds like all the big guns are getting involved. Also, Patrick Gooing, who apparently has worked on The Great Gatsby and one episode of Dexter, has one of the best names I've ever heard - and I know a guy called Roy Chicken.

"So thrilled to be working with @VancityReynolds on this," tweeted DeWitt when the news was announced. Not bad for an amateur who uploaded a story to Reddit for fun: if the film comes off, then you have to imagine that he's in for a windfall of epic proportions.

Given that one of the hottest names in Hollywood is onboard with the project, then Mr DeWitt has to be hopeful that it will get made and, hopefully, be more than decent as well.
