'Futha Mucka': Release date, plot, cast and all you need to know about Quibi's animated series voiced by Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L Jackson
Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L Jackson last shared screen space together in 'The Hitman's Bodyguard', and it was a laugh riot with ample action to boot. The action-comedy followed a bodyguard (Reynolds) who must protect a convicted notorious hitman (Jackson), who is all to testify at the International Criminal Court. The film grossed $180 million worldwide and the sequel, 'The Hitman's Wife's Bodyguard' is all set to drop in 2021. Before that, the two potty-mouthed rascals will lend their voices for Quibi's upcoming animated series, 'Futha Mucka'. Here's what we know about the series far:
There is no official date released as the series has just been greenlit. Our guess is it would either hit the end of the year or early 2021 considering how the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic has put a full-stop to all production activity. However, considering this is an animated project, things just might work differently.
It is a rather weird-reading logline: "Samuel L Jackson and Ryan Reynolds love each other. More accurately, Ryan loves Sam. When a minor mishap causes Sam to become Ryan's primary caregiver, things get weird. Quibi has announced a series order for the show." While much of the plot details are a closely-guarded secret, what we can expect is some laughs and expletives in trademark Jackson and Reynolds fashion.
Ryan Reynolds needs no introduction. The Canadian actor made headlines with a string of comedies, 'The Proposal', 'National Lampoon's Van Wilder' and 'Waiting'. He then starred in epic blockbusters in 'Deadpool' and '6 Underground'.
Samuel L Jackson
Another veteran actor who could well be called a legend. He shot to prominence with films such as 'Goodfellas', 'Jungle Fever', and 'Patriot Games'. Jackson is best known for playing Agent Nick Fury in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
'Futha Mucka' is created and executive produced by Jim and Brian Kehoe ('Blockers', who also serve as showrunners. Other EPs on board according to a Deadline report include Nina Soriano for Anonymous Content, Charlie Scully, and George Dewey, Patrick Gooing for Maximum Effort, Chris Prynoski, Shannon Prynoksi and Ben Kalina for Titmouse.
There is no trailer available yet for 'Futha Mucka'. However, watch this space for details on first looks and teasers that we will be updating as soon as it drops.
