The upcoming romantic adventure flick was being envisioned as a reunion for Sandra and RyanReynolds, who starred in the 2009 rom-com classic The Proposal.
However, the Deadpool star was only loosely attached to the film and now Variety reports that the Magic Mike star has all but signed a deal to take on the male lead.
Sandra will play a romance author, who discovers that a supposedly fictional city that she had written about is actually real. She and the actor who plays the lead character in her book take a life-threatening journey to find this lost city.
The Lost City of D will mark Sandra’s first project since starring in both Ocean’s 8 and Bird Box in 2018 – the latter of which became a massive hit for the streaming giant.
As for Channing, he is currently working on his directional debut in road trip comedy, Dog.
