Reynolds, Branagh set for action-thriller Mayday

A big-budget piece that Apple and Skydance are colloborating on

Ryan Reynolds and Kenneth Branagh are set to star in a big-budget action-thriller from Vacation and Horrible Bosses‘ duo Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley.

Apple Original Films and Skydance are teaming on Mayday, based on an original pitch by the abovesaid Dungeons & Dragons : Honor Among Thieves scribes, which was written before the WGA Strike. In other words, it could be filming shortly – once Reynolds completes his work on Disney’s Deadpool 3.

The plot is being kept under chastity belt for now.

Branagh next stars in Oppenheimer, with Cillian Murphy and Robert Downey Jr, which opens July 21.
