Ryan Reynolds and Kenneth Branagh have been cast as the leads in the upcoming action-adventure film titled “Mayday,” a joint collaboration between Apple Original Films and Skydance. Directed by Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley, the movie has already generated excitement as it was in development prior to the Writers’ Guild of America strike.
Details about the plot of “Mayday” are currently being kept under wraps, although it is known that Skydance has been working on the project behind the scenes. The film originated from an original pitch by Goldstein and Daley, which gained significant momentum after Ryan Reynolds expressed interest in joining the cast. While the start date is yet to be determined, it is likely to be Reynolds’ next filming commitment following his work on “Deadpool 3.”
Joining the cast is Academy Award-winning actor Kenneth Branagh, who recently appeared in Christopher Nolan’s highly anticipated film, “Oppenheimer.” Branagh will also reprise his role as Hercule Poirot in Disney’s “A Haunting in Venice,” part of the Agatha Christie trilogy.
The development of “Mayday” relies heavily on the established relationships among its key players. Ryan Reynolds has previously collaborated with both Skydance and Apple, evident in his successful Netflix sci-fi adventure film, “The Adam Project,” produced by Skydance, and the hit Christmas musical “Spirited,” in which he starred alongside Will Ferrell.
Furthermore, the film benefits from the efficient working relationship between Goldstein and Daley, who previously worked together on the action-adventure comedy “Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves,” featuring Chris Pine, Michelle Rodriguez, and Hugh Grant. In addition to their directing roles, Goldstein and Daley will serve as producers on “Mayday.” The production will be led by David Ellison, Dana Goldberg, and Don Granger for Skydance, along with Reynolds, Ashley Fox, Johnny Pariseau, and Patrick Gooing representing Maximum Effort.
As of now, no specific production date has been announced for “Mayday.” Stay tuned to FilmSweep for further updates on the film.
