Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson Reunite for a Quibi Series
Can you name a more iconic duo than Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson? Neither can I! The Hitman’s Bodyguard was a movie that cemented that into our minds for sure. With Ryan’s natural wit and Samuel’s stone-cold bada*s demeanor, a perfect blend was created. Now, they’re reuniting again for a different project. This time it’s a Quibi series, and here’s another plot twist. It’s an animated series called Futha Mucka.
Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson’s dynamic was pretty interesting in The Hitman’s Bodyguard
In The Hitman’s Bodyguard, we saw Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson as enemies turned friends. Michael Bryce (played by Ryan Reynolds), has to be the bodyguard of a known hitman Darius Kincaid (played by Samuel L. Jackson). They come together in spite of their history and differences to bring down a common enemy. It wasn’t that much of a hit with the critics, but it still earned a sequel owing to its box office success.
The sequel was going to release in August 2020 but unfortunately, it got delayed to the mess we were put in by the pandemic. Hence, the sequel ‘The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard’ is going to release in 2021. In the meantime, we’ll see Ryan and Samuel in Futha Mucka hopefully.
So, what do we know about Quibi’s Futha Mucka?
Well, we know it’s an animated Quibi series that may save the new streaming platform from dying out. Other than that, we know that both Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson are executive producers on it. The showrunners are Jim and Brian Kehoe who are also executive producers. Brian and Jim Kehoe are the brother duo that also wrote the movie ‘Blockers’. Moreover, Anonymous Content and Maximum Effort are the production companies behind the show.
The plot of Futha Mucka is a very interesting and hilarious one. It’s a parody of the actors’ real lives. In it, we will get to see Samuel L. Jackson be the primary caregiver of Ryan Reynolds. Both of them love each other but when Sam has to officially become Ryan’s caregiver, things get a bit weird. How weird? We’ll have to wait and find out!
