Stoned Alone, an R-rated Home Alone re-imagining, is in the works from Fox and Ryan Reynolds.
Reynolds, who just released Deadpool 2 with the studio, will produce the comedy about a 20-something stoner who, after missing the plane for his holiday ski trip, gets high and becomes paranoid that people are breaking into his house. While high, he tries to thwart the thieves who have actually, really broken into his house.
Kevin Burrows and Matt Mider wrote the feature that will be directed by Augustine Frizzell, whose Sundance feature Never Goin' Back will soon be release by A24. Burrows and Mider wrote the upcoming Netflix comedy The Package (previously titled Eggplant Emoji) about a teenager who accidentally cuts off his penis during a camping trip.
Reynolds will produce via his Maximum Effort banner, with George Dewey executive producing.
Home Alone, released in 1990, was directed by Chris Columbus and written by John Hughes. It follows Kevin McCallister (Macaulay Culkin) who gets left behind by his family over Christmas vacation and defends his house from burglars using an ingenious variety of booby traps.
