Shawn Levy is having quite the run over at Netflix. Not only is Stranger Things still an absolute juggernaut, but he’s also an executive producer on the streamer’s Unsolved Mysteries reboot and just had loads of viewers fall for the adaptation of I Am Not Okay with This. Of course that series did wind up in an unfortunate situation due to the pandemic, but Levy continues to forge forward with yet another series that will no doubt brighten your day, Dash & Lily. Based on Dash & Lily's Book of Dares by David Levithan and Rachel Cohn, …

Ryan Reynolds and Shawn Levy are back in business with Netflix, which has picked up their untitled time travel movie from Paramount. Originally titled Our Name Is Adam, the project was initially developed as a starring vehicle for Tom Cruise.

Blake Lively is set to make her Netflix debut with a new movie which has Stranger Things's Shawn Levy attached to produce. Lively has been keeping a relatively low profile in recent months following the box office disappointment that was The Rhythm Section from earlier this year. Seemingly undeterred, Lively's next project takes her down perhaps the most genre-driven road of her career with this Netflix pic.

Free Guy duo Ryan Reynolds and Shawn Levy are set to reteam for an untitled time travel adventure movie that is in the works at Skydance. Reynolds will star and Levy will direct, while both of them will produce alongside Skydance’s David Ellison, Dana Goldberg and Don Granger. Reynolds will play a man who travels back in time to get help from his 13-year old self, and together they encounter their late father, who's now Reynolds' age. Jonathan Tropper, who worked with Levy on the 2014 dramedy This Is Where I Leave You, has been tapped to …
We've all come to love Taika Waititi the director thanks to What We Do in the Shadows, Hunt for the Wilderpeople and, of course, Thor: Ragnarok, but to be honest, he still feels under-appreciated as an actor. After all, he was pretty great in all three of those movies, so his newly-reported casting alongside Ryan Reynolds in the action comedy Free Guy strikes me as a coup for director Shawn Levy and 20th Century Fox. Reynolds will star as Guy, a bank teller who discovers that he's actually living inside of a video game and teams …
