Ryan Reynolds to star in R-rated Home Alone reimagining Stoned Alone

July 26, 2018 1 min read

Here's an idea you're definitely not high enough to think is any good: Fox is going to remake Home Alone but with an R rating and starring Ryan Reynolds with a concept that sees him missing his plane to a ski trip, lighting up a fat joint, and then trying to fend off thieves that break into his house. They're going to call it Stoned Alone. This is a real movie. This is really happening.

Now, I know we've all bemoaned uninspired Hollywood remakes, but I don't think turning a classic into a stoner comedy sounds exactly original. If there's one thing Seth Rogen and company have taught us, it's that there's a limit to just how funny a stoner comedy can be. The joke "but he's high!" only gets you so far. It can be tedious in the first half hour, let alone 90 minutes. I mean, after Reynolds pulls on a Deadpool mask, refers to himself as Dankpool, and tries to fight the burglars off, what will be left to see?
