RYAN REYNOLDS

LIGHTS, CAM­ERA, AC­TION IN ABU DHABI

Hello! Middle East - - THE INSIDE STORY -

Megas­tar Ryan Reynolds is cre­at­ing quite a stir in the UAE cap­i­tal as he has be­gun film­ing his new Net­flix movie, 6 Un­der­ground, here.

Ac­cord­ing to re­ports, film­ing is cur­rently tak­ing place on Reem Is­land, with fur­ther scenes set to be shot in various other Emi­rates over the next few weeks. So it’s lit­tle sur­prise that his 31-year-old wife, Blake Lively, who the Dead­pool lead cred­ited with hav­ing taken a so­cial me­dia photo of him along­side a hand­ful of the film crew hav­ing din­ner at a restau­rant along the Abu Dhabi Cor­niche, has flown in to join him.

The A-list cou­ple, who have two chil­dren, Inez and James, en­joyed din­ner over­look­ing the UAE Pres­i­den­tial Palace and the Ma­rina Eye.

Later, the All I See Is You ac­tress was snapped in a pic­ture her­self sur­rounded by the cast of the movie, di­rected by Michael Bay, which her hus­band of six years posted to his In­stas­to­ries.

The 42-year-old Hol­ly­wood heart­throb seems to be en­joy­ing his time here. In a state­ment pro­vided to The National, the fa­ther-of-two said that shoot­ing in the UAE would be one of the high­lights of the pro­duc­tion, but the Cana­dian ac­tor wouldn’t di­vulge de­tails. “You’ll have to wait un­til the movie hits Net­flix to find out why. We’ve only been here a few days so far, but the wel­come from ev­ery­one has been amaz­ing and I can’t wait to ex­plore Abu Dhabi more.”

The film, which has a bud­get of US$125 mil­lion, also stars Dave Franco, Mélanie Lau­rent, Corey Hawkins, Manuel Gar­ci­aRulfo, and Ben

Hardy.
