Ryan Reynolds and Kristen Stewart Join Adventureland

By now you've heard of Greg Mottola's Adventureland - we've been covering the hell out of it. The movie just gets better everyday. This latest announcement guarantees my complete interest: actors Ryan Reynolds and Kristen Stewart have both joined Jesse Eisenberg in Adventureland. Reynolds will play an aspiring rock star and the "icon of cool" to all the kids working at the park. Stewart will play the romantic lead, a tomboy who also works at the park.

As a reminder, Adventureland is Superbad writer and director Greg Mottola's next film, a coming-of-age comedy. The 1987-set story follows an uptight recent college grad (Eisenberg) who is forced to take a degrading minimum-wage job at the local amusement park when he realizes he can't afford his dream European tour. The experience helps him to loosen up a bit as he finds first love, forms new friendships and emerges with a newfound sense of maturity just in time to enter the real world in the fall.

Adventureland will start filming at Kennywood Park in Pittsburgh next month. I've got to be honest, Ryan Reynolds is a brilliant choice! I really can't wait to see this film come together into what could be better than Superbad, Borat, and even Knocked Up! I've really got a lot of faith in Mottola and this movie.
