Can we handle this much funny in one movie? "Thor: Ragnarok" director/actor Taika Waititi is joining Ryan Reynolds in the sci-fi action comedy "Free Guy."

It's about a guy who's a background character and realizes he’s living in a video game. With the help of an avatar, he tries to stop the creators of the game from shutting down his world. (So, kind of like "Wreck It-Ralph.")

The rest of the cast are no slouches: Utkarsh Ambudkar ("Brockmire," "Ride Along") Jodie Comer ("Killing Eve"), Joe Kerry ("Stranger Things") and  Lil Rel Howery ("Get Out").

Shawn Levy ("Night at the Museum") is directing from a script by Matt Lieberman and Zak Penn.
