Photos on social media also show Reynolds, as well as Walker Scobell and Mark Ruffalo, filming around UBC last week.

Although Netflix has to release official details surrounding the movie, Reynolds has shared that Scobell will play a 12-year-old version of himself.

The film is being directed by Shawn Levy, who is known for producing Stranger Things, Night at the Museum, and Free Guy, which Reynolds also stars in.

Last year, Reynolds announced that he would be using his own salary to hire BIPOC crew members for an upcoming Netflix film. Called the Group Effort Initiative, the program involves bringing 10 to 20 trainees from historically marginalized groups. While Reynolds didn’t specify which film the crew members would work on, he noted that it would begin filming during Fall 2020.
