Ryan Reynolds announced this Saturday, October 16 to put his career on hold after the shooting of the film “Spirited”.
“That’s a wrap.” Ryan Reynolds just wrapped up filming of Spirited, Christmas movie soon to be released on Apple TV +, starring Will Ferrell and Octavia Spencer. Long exhausting months of filming, which demanded a lot of energy. Blake Lively’s husband has decided to take a break and put the cinema on hold for a while. “It’s the perfect time for a little sabbatical”, he announced on Instagram this Saturday, October 16.
