With the new film Woman in Gold out this past weekend, it’s a wonder to think what factors casting agents take into account, especially when pairing a revered British actress with a (some would say) mediocre snarky comedic actor. Obviously Reynolds has lately been taking roles that require more dramatic skills than comedic ones. However, this trend of pairing Reynolds with actors above (or below) his caliber has been a thing for a while. Sure it’s something that’s done all the time with other actors, but this specific casting choice of Mirren/Reynolds sticks out in particular. So why not look at some past odd Ryan Reynolds’ pairings to see if this trend is a good or bad thing.

Keeping Up With the Joneses follows a suburban couple who become suspicious of their new extremely attractive neighbors, who they later discover to be undercover agents. According to THR, Monroe and Walsh will play one of the couples already living in the neighborhood.
Walsh and Monroe join a comically charged cast including Zach Galifianakis, Jon Hamm, Isla Fisher and Gal Gadot. Both actors, who already have strong comedy backgrounds, will be sure to bring a nice dynamic to the set as a neighboring couple. Monroe has worked on shows ranging from Key and Peele to Modern Family, Robot Chicken to Workaholics while Walsh has worked on films like The Hangover & Hits and shows like Upright Citizens Brigade, Reno 911! and most recently HBO’s Veep. »

She’s been garnering critics’ praise, becoming the first American actress to win the Cesar Award for her role in Clouds Of Sils Maria. And now it seems Kristen Stewart’s credibility with Europeans is going to skyrocket, thanks to the news she’s been cast in metropolitan master Woody Allen’s next film.
The untitled entry reunites her with Adventureland co-star Jesse Eisenberg, and also sees Bruce Willis in the mix. Eisenberg worked for Allen on To Rome With Love, but Stewart and Willis are new to his neurotic universe. The director’s team are notoriously tight-lipped, so the script could be a comedy or a drama. The way Allen flits about in time also means the cast could end up in anything from period dress to Tommy Hilfiger.

In recent years, Woody Allen has loved to shock and deceive moviegoers with his seemingly random casting decisions - but the thing is that they always appear to work. Not only does Woody write the perfect characters for the right actors, but the actors themselves seemingly elevate their abilities when they work with the legendary director. So that.s why Bruce Willis and Kristen Stewart must be feeling pretty happy with themselves right now, because it's been announced that the pair will be working alongside Allen on the filmmaker.s upcoming project. According to The Wrap, Stewart will also be joined on the still untitled film by her Adventureland co-star, Jesse Eisenberg. The pair will be more than used to each others. skills and craft, as they also recently worked together on American Ultra, the upcoming action film from Nima Nourizadeh.

Bruce Willis, Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg have signed on to star in an Untitled Woody Allen Comedy. As is the case with most Woody Allen movies, no plot details were given. As Deadline points out, Woody Allen is one of the few directors who doesn't show a script to the actors he's courting, since everybody wants to work with him if they are available.
The project will reunite Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart for the third time. They first starred in the 2009 comedy Adventureland together, and they will next be seen in American Ultra, which debuts later this year although a release date has not been given yet. Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg have never worked with Bruce Willis before, and this will also be Bruce Willis' first Woody Allen movie.
The duo will be directed alongside Bruce Willis in the Academy Award-winning filmmaker's 2016 film project if final negotiations are completed.
No storyline details have been announced for the untitled movie yet.
Stewart recently became the first American actress to win a French Cesar Award for her performance in Clouds of Sils Maria.
Allen's forthcoming Irrational Man is scheduled to premiere late in the year. Joaquin Phoenix has the lead role in the movie as a university professor who begins a torrid love affair with a student (Emma Stone).

It will be an Adventureland reunion in Woody Allen's next movie as the 79-year-old writer/director has set Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart to star in his next, next film, along with Bruce Willis rounding out the first batch of casting. As always, the pic does not have a title and no early word on a plot, but these are three names that don't necessarily come as a surprise. This is the second go-round with Allen for Eisenberg after To Rome with Love back in 2012 and the first time for both Stewart and Willis, though I think Allen just might provide some great material to allow Stewart to shine. Willis will likely step into a role similar to the two played by Alec Baldwin in the recent past. As for Allen, he's lining 'em up fast and furious. He's got Irrational Man later this year, not to forget the »

Along with Quentin Tarantino, New York filmmaker Woody Allen is responsible for reigniting the careers of many actors with his quirky, neurotic brand of dramedy. The prolific writer-director has churned out one feature a year for decades, each honing in on a particular aspect of the human condition brought to life through his talent-packed ensembles. While at times his output veers wildly from critical smash to critical flop, that hasn’t stopped him from continuing to attract a wealth of Hollywood big hitters.
Now, his stellar track record for A-listers looks to continues with his next flick, which will boast Bruce Willis, Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart as part of its starry line-up. Specific details of the movie are being kept strictly under wraps, with only producer credits being revealed. Allen’s long-serving team of producers, Letty Arsonson, Stephen Tenenbaum and Edward Walson, will reprise their familiar roles alongside the helmer, »

Briefly: Right on schedule, this year brings another Woody Allen film with Irrational Man arriving on July 24th with Emma Stone and Joaquin Phoenix starring. And while we haven't even gotten a glimpse of that film yet, Allen is again wasting no time in getting a cast together for the film that he's going to shoot this year. As usual, there are no plot details or even a title at this point, but Deadline reports Adventureland stars Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg will reunite yet again (they'll next be seen in American Ultra) and Bruce Willis will be along for the ride as well. This will be the first time Stewart and Willis have worked with Allen. We'll keep our ear to the ground for any more details as the production looms closer. »

We would've thought that Woody Allen's venture into streaming with his series at Amazon might've stopped his one-movie-per-year streak in 2016. We were wrong. The director is already putting together his next feature, and as always, the stars are lining up. "Adventureland" duo Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart, who recently teamed up again on the forthcoming "American Ultra," are once again joining forces for Allen's next flick. Also aboard is Bruce Willis. As always, the plot, title, and story details are being kept under wraps. It will be Eisenberg's second time working with Allen (following "To Rome With Love"), but Stewart and Willis' first go round working with the legend. That's all the info for now. Allen's next flick "Irrational Man" starring Joaquin Phoenix and Emma Stone opens on July 24th. [Deadline]

It’s that time again: even as Woody Allen prepares to launch his current film – now called Irrational Man – he has one eye on the movie he’ll make this summer. Deadline is reporting that Jesse Eisenberg, Bruce Willis and Kristen Stewart are on board. As usual for an Allen films, nothing has been revealed about the title or the plot. What can we tell you? Expect the standard credits font, and the jazzy soundtrack, but we’ll wait and see whether he’s still preferring to shoot in Europe (as recently with Magic In The Moonlight), headed back to the States (ditto, Blue Jasmine) or going elsewhere. Could this be the first Woody Allen production set on the moon?Assuming both Eisenberg (who worked on To Rome With Love for the director) and Stewart sign on, it will mark the third team-up for the pair after Adventureland and the upcoming American Ultra. »
