R-Rated ‘Home Alone’ Re-Imagining From Ryan Reynolds Titled ‘Stoned Alone’ On The Way

Back in 1990 20th Century Fox released a family friendly comedy titled Home Alone. Perhaps you’ve heard of it. The movie had a budget of $18 million, and went on to bring in over $475 million worldwide. At the time, it became the third highest-grossing movie of all time behind only E.T. and Star Wars. It also became a holiday season classic and spawned multiple sequels.

Because of the original’s success it’s no great surprise that Fox would want to re-use that recipe from time to time. What is a little surprising, however, is the news that they’re now dusting off that recipe for an R-rated stoner comedy re-imagining of Home Alone titled, of course, Stoned Alone. On top of that, they have Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds involved as a producer.

Here’s a description of Stoned Alone from Deadline:

It centers around a twenty-something weed growing loser who misses the plane for his holiday ski trip. He makes the best of things by getting high. Paranoia sets in and he believes he hears someone break into his house. Turns out thieves have broken in. Fully stoned and fueled by paranoia, he tries to thwart the thieves and defend his castle.

The idea for the movie came from Fox executive Matt Reilly and the screenplay was written by Kevin Burrows and Matt Mider (Gentlemen Lobsters).

Augustine Frizzell, who makes her feature debut with this year’s Never Goin’ Back, is set to direct the movie.

Reynolds produces through his production company Maximum Effort. At the beginning of the year, we found out that Reynolds and Maximum Effort were developing a new take on another well-known title, Clue, with his Deadpool writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick in talks to join him.

No word just yet on when we can expect to see Stoned Alone released in theaters.
