We realize the headline sounds like it belongs on The Onion, but apparently this movie is a real thing.
According to Deadline, Ryan Reynolds is set to produce a film titled ‘Stoned Alone,’ which will be an r-rated version of Home Alone featuring a weed dealer who misses his plane for a scheduled holiday ski trip.
“He makes the best of things by getting high. Paranoia sets in and he believes he hears someone break into his house. Turns out thieves have broken in. Fully stoned and fueled by paranoia, he tries to thwart the thieves and defend his castle.”
I mean, it sounds incredibly stupid and like a waste of time and money, but also…I kinda want to watch it?
Augustine Frizzell is set to direct the project. She’s the director behind the 2018 indie dramedy Never Goin’ Back.
No word on if Reynolds will also star in the movie, but I don’t think he needs to. Macaulay Culkin, the star of the original Home Alone, could easily play the stoner they’re looking for…
This could be a direct sequel.
