Home Alone had everything a stoner could desire: vats of junk food, freedom from surveillance and enough situations to enhance the paranoia. The only thing missing was the paraphernalia.
Enter Ryan Reynolds, who decided to take it upon himself to fix the glaring absence and offer a marijuana-hued revival (of sorts) of the classic beloved-by-children Christmas blockbuster. But no children will be allowed to watch Stoned Alone.
There won’t be any Kevin, but there will be a twenty-something-year-old who misses his holiday-bound flight, and in turn decides to use the free time to get blazing. Fuelled by hazy mistrust, he believes thieves to have broken into his house—as chance would have it, they have, and it’s up to him to offer defence. The R-rated comedy will be produced by Reynolds, and hopefully will see him star in it, and will be directed by Augustine Frizzell of Never Goin’ Back fame, as reported by Deadline.
Home Alone was a major box-office hit; Deadpool and its sequel took breaking the fourth wall to levels of comedic genius; one doesn’t have to imagine the potential of this one. So, the only thing left to say is, get ready, ya filthy animals.
