After faltering with Green Lantern and R.I.P.D. recently, Ryan Reynolds has returned to the world of independent film this year with The Voices. Previous efforts include Buried and The Paper Man, and this time Reynolds teams with Persepolis director Marjane Satrapi for an odd, dark comedy. The plot follows Reynolds as a man named Jerry who gets caught up in a murder, and ends up finding surprising advice from his dog, Bosco, and his cat, Mr. Whiskers. Now a teaser poster from the premiere at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival (we hope to have a review later this week) as arrived, showing this isn't Dr. Dolittle at all. Look!
Here's the teaser poster for Marjane Satrapi's The Voices from Collider:
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.

The script is cool. I feel like casting Reynolds ruined the movie for me and I haven't even seen it...

I disagree, Reynolds is much more at his place at this kind of movies, as he proved in Buried and The Paper Man

I'll check out paper man but Buried was meh.

If you think his performance in Buried was "meh," you probably shouldn't bother.
