The Adam Project
A man travels back in time to get help from his 12-year-old self to find their late father and save the future.
Ryan Reynolds shared a video today of his young The Adam Project co-star Walker Scobell acting out a profanity-filled Deadpool monologue on set in Vancouver.
Walker Scobell may be the perfect Ryan Reynolds mini-me for the Netflix movie.
Introducing Walker Scobell. This innocent young boy plays 12 year old me in our upcoming @Netflix film. Because he takes his job seriously, the role required significant research. No matter what, he’s WAY too young to know this monologue by heart. #Precious pic.twitter.com/KUszXS2GYf

Today was also the day of Ryan Reynolds’s last appearance on Jeopardy with the longtime host and fellow Canadian Alex Trebek, who died of pancreatic cancer on November 8th after pre-taping this week’s shows.
It’s an honour (and a little heartbreaking) to be with #AlexTrebek one last time on @Jeopardy 🇨🇦 https://t.co/YQ3FDo3n6m

Adam Reed (Walker Scobell), age 12, and still grieving the sudden death of his father a year earlier, walks into his garage one night to find a wounded pilot hiding there. This mysterious pilot (Ryan Reynolds) turns out to be the older version of himself from the future, where time travel is in its infancy. He has risked everything to come back in time on a secret mission.
Walker Scobell and Ryan Reynolds.
Together they must embark on an adventure into the past to find their father (Mark Ruffalo), set things right, and save the world. Working together, both young and grown Adam come to terms with the loss of their father and have a chance to heal the wounds that have shaped them. Adding to the challenge of the mission, the two Adams discover they really don’t like each other very much, and if they’re going to save the world, they’re first going to have to figure out how to get along.
