First Look: Ryan Reynolds Talks to the Cat and Dog in 'The Voices'

December 9, 2013

The Voices

With missteps like Green Lantern, The Change-Up and R.I.P.D. over the past couple years, Ryan Reynolds has struggled to find another hit. Safe House wasn't a failure and The Croods was a hit (but animated films don't really help to boost an actor's career), but Reynolds needs some help. Here's hoping a return to the indie world with The Voices will get Reynolds some acclaim. The story follows Jerry Hickfang (Reynolds) as he accidentally kills a woman he works with and falls for at a bathroom fixtures factory, only to begin taking follow-up advice from his evil, foul-mouthed cat Mr. Whiskers and the more benevolent dog Bosco. Now we have a first look at the film debuting at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival next month. Look!

Here's the first photo from Marjane Satrapi's The Voices from Sundance:

The Voices

The Voices is directed by Marjane Satrapi (Perseopolis) and writer Michael Perry (Paranormal Activity 2, "The River"). This genre-bending tale centers around Jerry Hickfang (Ryan Reynolds), a lovable but disturbed factory worker who yearns for attention from a woman in accounting. When their relationship takes a sudden, murderous turn, Jerry's evil talking cat and benevolent talking dog lead him down a fantastical path where he ultimately finds salvation. Gemma Arterton, Anna Kendrick and Jacki Weaver also star in the film premiering at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival, but there's no official release date yet.

Ryan Reynolds is paying the iron price.

Hm...might be something to check out. Dark comedies are very subjective.

Oh boy, another Ryan Reynolds movie and a comedy to boot. Which means he will be doing his awful Jim Carey impersonation through the whole movie.
