Los Angeles: Hollywood star Ryan Reynolds has announced that he has taken a “bit sabbatical” from films following the conclusion of the Apple TV Plus film “Spirit”.
The 44-year-old actor shared the news in an Instagram post on Saturday.
“Perfect time for a little break from filmmaking. I am going to miss every moment working with this vulgarly gifted group of creators and actors.
Reynolds wrote alongside a series of photos of him with members of the cast and crew on the Christmas-themed musical film, writing, “These days, talent matters just as much. I’ve been fortunate to work with people who Work with both.”
Directed by Sean Anders and John Morris, “Spirited” is a modern retelling of Charles Dickens’ 1843 novel “A Christmas Carol”. It also stars Will Ferrell and Octavia Spencer.
Reynolds, who was most recently seen in “Free Guy,” said she had a great time working on the upcoming film.
“Can’t believe I’d be ready to say yes to this challenging film even three years ago. Singing, dancing and playing in the sandbox with Will Ferrell made so many dreams come true. And this is my second film to feature the great @ octaviaspenser…” he wrote.
The actor will next be seen in the action comedy “Red Notice”, which will release on Netflix in November. It also stars Gal Gadot and Dwayne Johnson.
Reynolds also has “The Adam Project,” a sci-fi film set to be released on streamers early next year.
