Ryan Reynolds to Look for Missing Daughter in 'Queen of The Night'

Ryan Reynolds

Though he's been rumored for the lead role in the upcoming Highlander reboot, Ryan Reynolds hasn't yet committed to that project and has instead signed on to something a bit more serious. Deadline is reporting that Chloe director Atom Egoyan, who just finished filming the West Memphis 3 film The Devil's Knot, has tapped the former Green Lantern to star in his upcoming drama Queen of The Night. Reynolds will play a father whose daughter went missing when she was just nine-years old, but years later some disturbing clues pop up that indicate she may still be alive, so he goes on a quest to find the now 17-year old. More below!

This story sounds like something Harrison Ford would have been a part of back in the 90's, but at 35, Reynolds is getting to the age where he can pull off superhero fare and family dramas in an equally convincing manner. Despite the failure of Green Lantern at the box office, I still enjoy Reynolds' cocky quick-witted persona quite a bit, but it sounds like he'll be toning it down a bit to work with Egoyan, whose art-house style is much more quiet and concentrated than the directors Reynolds is used to working with. The premise of tracking down a missing child is a tale as old as time, but with Taken and the upcoming Taken 2 bringing it back to popularity, we could be seeing it a bit more in the near future.

    "Though he's been rumored for the lead role in the upcoming Highlander reboot, Ryan Reynolds hasn't yet committed to that project and has instead signed on to something a bit more serious." Are you trying to say that Higlander is not serious? Highlander is serious bussiness.

      As the last couple of direct-to-video sequels have proven.

        I believe you take things much too seriously. Things are serious bussiness.

    Safe house was soo underrated IMO, one of his best films right behind buried.
