Ryan Reynolds took a break from filming “Free Guy” in Boston to visit with some special guests.
The actor recently posted photos to Instagram showing him with Gabriel and Will, two fans who visited the set on June 8 thanks to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
“Thank you Gabriel and Will for coming to the set of Free Guy!” Reynolds wrote. “It was hot. It was sweaty. It was like filming an entire movie inside the a** of an angry grizzly bear. But the best part of my job is hosting kids and families for @makeawishamerica foundation. Will and Gabriel lit up my life. Funny, smart and kind. I expect big things… Love you guys.”
The post drew supportive comments from several other celebrities, including fellow blockbuster actor Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.
“Best part of fame,” Johnson wrote. “Well. Done. Brother.”
“Free Guy” began filming in Boston in May and is expected to be in production through at least July. According to a studio synopsis of the film, which is set to hit theaters July 3, 2020, Reynolds plays Guy, a bank teller who doesn’t realize he is a background character in the massively popular video game “Free City.” Things change when he meets MolotovGirl (Jodie Comer, “Killing Eve”), an “expert player who harbors a hidden agenda,” who he joins on an adventure to change the game and “level up” his life.
Reynolds has hosted set visits for fans through the Make-A-Wish Foundation in the past as well, welcoming several of them to the filming of “Deadpool 2” in 2018.
