Samuel L. Jackson and Ryan Reynolds will be teaming up once again for Quibi’s new animated comedy series Futha Mucka, in which both star as animated fictional versions of themselves who are apparently in love with each other.
Here is Futha Mucka’s rather unusual logline (via Slashfilm),
Samuel L. Jackson and Ryan Reynolds love each other. More accurately, Ryan loves Sam. When asked for comment on his feelings for Ryan, Sam said “tell them I couldn’t be reached for comment.” When a minor mishap causes Sam to become Ryan’s primary caregiver, sh*t gets weird. Ryan is delighted to spend all of his time with Sam. Sam couldn’t be reached for comment.
Will we get to see Jackson and Reynolds fanfiction, possibly spawned from the duo’s stint in The Hitman’s Bodyguard, come to life in this animated series? Guess we will have to wait to find out.
Futha Mucka is created and executive produced by showrunner Jim and Brian Kehoe (Blockers). Other crew involved in the animated series includes executive producers Nina Soriano for Anonymous Content, Charlie Scully, and George Dewey, Patrick Gooing for Maximum Effort, Chris Prynoski, Shannon Prynoksi and Ben Kalina for Titmouse.
Jackson and Reynolds are set to appear once again in the sequel to The Hitman’s Bodyguard, titled The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard, which was supposed to premiere in August 2020 but ended up being delayed till 2021.
