As you can probably tell, it's a 'Home Alone' remake.
The idea of a 'Home Alone' re-boot is enough to make anybody cringe; some things ought to just stay in the 90s. On the other hand, a parody remake produced by Ryan Reynolds about a stoner who finds himself targeted by burglars when he's home alone with nothing but marijuana as company sounds pretty amazing.

In fairness, Macaulay Culkin has actually turned into the perfect actor for this kind of reboot, but we're sure producers will choose the right person for the job even if he doesn't become involved again. 'Stoned Alone' essentially follows the same plot as the 'Home Alone' series, but instead of a 10-year-old boy being forced to defend his home from thieves, it's a 20-something stoner.

Ryan Reynolds thinks that Deadpool's pansexuality is something that should continue to be explored in his Marvel movie universe.
Ryan Reynolds is certainly one of the most open and approachable actors to come from Marvel's slate of movies, which of course made him the perfect pick to take on the role of Wade Wilson, aka Deadpool on the big screen. Playing the Merc with the Mouth, Reynolds has impressed millions of fans across the globe with his quick wit both in character and off screen, but the star did take a few moments to get serious during the 'Deadpool 2' panel at this year's San Diego Comic-Con.
Ryan Reynolds hopes Deadpool's pansexuality continues to be a part of his movies
Asked about LGBTQ+ representation and what he thinks the future of that should be within his movie universe, Reynolds replied: "I certainly think that this universe... needs to represent and reflect the world in very real ways. The great thing about 'Deadpool' is that we're allowed to do things that other superhero movies don't necessarily do. It's something that I'd love to see more of, certainly through Wade, certainly through this universe because it's something that we're building out more."

Despite being an R-rated movie, 'Deadpool 2' has raked in the big bucks overseas this weekend.
With Ryan Reynolds returning to the titular role of the Mercenary with the Mouth in 'Deadpool 2', Marvel fans are finally able to get their second dose of big screen action from one of the most compelling and unique comic book characters to have ever been created.

According to Box Office Pro, 'Deadpool 2' - directed by David Leitch, and also starring Zazie Beetz and Josh Brolin - has set an incredible overseas record for an R-rated movie, raking in $301 million across the globe when combining United States takings with the rest of the world. All of this without yet even opening in China!
Reynolds spoke about his life-long struggles with anxiety in a new interview with the New York Times.
As the brash, cocky star of Deadpool and with a famously sharp and quick wit off-screen, one would not imagine that Ryan Reynolds has any problem with confidence. However, the superstar actor has opened up more on his struggles with anxiety in a new interview.
“I have anxiety. I've always had anxiety,” Canadian star Reynolds told the New York Times on Thursday (May 3rd). “Both in the light-hearted 'I'm anxious about this' kind of thing, and I've been to the depths of the darker end of the spectrum, which is not fun.”
When he feels stressed out about stuff, Reynolds sometimes overcomes his anxiety by drawing on his now infamous Deadpool character to get through it.

'Shazam!' star Mark Strong has revealed the DC Extended Universe scripts are so closely guarded that they are encrypted and disappear if you stop reading them after ''20 seconds''.
Mark Strong has revealed the scripts on 'Shazam!' have encrypted technology which makes the text disappear if you stop reading for ''20 seconds''.
The 54-year-old English actor is to play villain Doctor Sivana in the DC Extended Universe movie about teenage boy Billy Baston who can transform into adult superhero Captain Marvel when he utters the word which is the film's title.
Strong has not been surprised by the level of secrecy on David F. Sandberg's project as he knows how guarded comic book films are because he played Sinestro in the panned Ryan Reynolds-led 'Green Lantern', and he admits he was desperate to return to the DC universe due to the reception the 2011 Warner Bros. Pictures movie got.
