Ryan Reynolds to remake Home Alone as a stoner comedy film?

Twentieth Century Fox has set up the comedy project Stoned Alone with Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds producing and potentially starring in the film. Augustine Frizzell, who directed the comedy Never Goin' Back, has been signed to helm the film. 

Kevin Burrows and Matt Mider wrote the script from an idea by Fox executive Matt Reilly with the project centering on a 20-something loser who misses the plane for his holiday ski trip and gets high at home -- only to then discover that thieves have broken into his house.

The project, which is in early development, is reminiscent of Fox's 1990 comedy Home Alone, which starred Macaulay Culkin as an 8-year-old boy mistakenly left behind at his Chicago home when his family goes to Paris for Christmas vacation. 

Home Alone was a massive box office success with $476 million in worldwide grosses. Reynolds will produce through his Fox-based Maximum Effort production company and Maximum Effort's George Dewey will be the project's executive producer.
