Ninja, Jacksepticeye Team Up with Ryan Reynolds for Gaming-Themed Film
It’s no surprise to see popular gamers live rather exciting lives. Take Tyler “Ninja” Blevins as the perfect example. Not only is he one of the most popular gamers/streamers in the world, but he also had several extraordinary stunts to his name that cemented his name on Times list of 100 most influential people of 2019.
He’s hosting a New Year’s Eve show in New York, writing and publishing a book, and creating a movement that could endanger Twitch’s popularity and move Microsoft’s Mixer up in the streaming world.
He hasn’t received a Nobel prize yet, but from the looks of things, an Oscar doesn’t seem that far away anymore. Yep, popular streamers in Hollywood seem to be all the craze these days, and Tyler “Ninja” Blevins is one of them.
The 28-year-old streamer will appear in a Hollywood movie called Free Guy. It’s a new comedy featuring Ryan Reynolds as the leading actor, and it aims to establish popular streamers in Hollywood with an exciting gaming theme.
Free Guy follows a character who realizes he’s just an NPC in an open-world sandbox game called Free City. As mentioned above, Reynolds is the leading actor, bringing the main character, Guy, to life in this seemingly brilliant comedy.
This movie brings an exciting spin on the gaming world. If done correctly, it could prove to be a huge hit, not just in the gaming community but in general movie-watchers’ clubs too.
In addition to Reynolds, Free Guy will also feature the likes of Jodie Comer, Taika Waititi, and Joe Keery of Stranger Things. Furthermore, Ninja won’t be the only streamer popping up in this Hollywood spectacle. Jacksepticeye, Pokimane, and LazarBeam will be there too, ensuring this gaming-themed movie captivates the audience with familiar faces and a thrilling storyline.
However, don’t think you’ll be seeing your favorite streamers nonstop. All of them will have smaller roles with not that much screen time. Still, it’s a move in the right direction, no doubt about that!
Can this popular streamers in Hollywood movement snowball further and perhaps give Ninja, Jacksepticeye, and other more prominent roles in future movies? If Free Guy does well at the box office, chances are we’ll see more popular streamers in Hollywood relatively soon.
Free Guy will be released by Disney and 20th Century Fox on July 3, 2020.
