Well-known actor Ryan Reynolds announced via his Instagram that he would be taking a break from acting following the completion of his most recent movie for Apple+, Spirited, which has not yet received a release date.

Spirited is a musical adaptation of the classic Charles Dickens novel A Christmas Story and stars other talented actors such as Will Ferrell and Octavia Spencer.

Reynolds posted photos to his Instagram from the Spirited set as well as a message to fans that stated:

That’s a wrap for me on Spirited. Not sure I’d have been ready to say yes to a film this challenging even three years ago.

Singing, dancing and playing in the sandbox with Will Ferrell made a whole lotta dreams come true. And this is my second film with the great @octaviaspencer

Perfect time for a little sabbatical from movie making. I’m gonna miss every second working with this obscenely gifted group of creators and artists.

These days, kindness matters as much as talent. I’ve been lucky to work with folks who are flush with both.

Known for his roles in films such as Green Lantern (2011), Free Guy (2021), Pokemon Detective Pikachu (2019), and The Hitman’s Bodyguard (2017) to name a few, Ryan Reynolds’ true claim to fame happened with his role in Deadpool (2016) in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The already witty actor is a fan favorite in Hollywood and has certainly portrayed his Deadpool character in ways many may not have expected as he puts his wit to the test for the character’s, especially sarcastic and gritty nature.

Ryan Reynolds’ announcement comes as a bit of a shock since Deadpool 3 is still in production and, well, he is Deadpool. However, since the movie is still in its early stages, Reynolds may just be taking a break to reset and prepare for filming. His sabbatical should not affect the production of the movie although that has not yet been confirmed nor denied at this time.
