Joined by Jodie Comer, Taika Waititi, and Lil Rel Howrey, it was typically thought of to be a reasonably good film and did fairly well on the field workplace, which suggests a observe up is anticipated of it.

Reynolds and director Shawn Levy confirmed round this time final yr {that a} Free Guy 2 was within the works, it was simply one thing they needed to take their time on.
