Considering that Ryan Reynolds was one of the first inserts into our Star Database [coming tonight], I am pleased to hear that this guy has picked up a few new roles this year. For instance, Joe Carnahan has recently gone back to the top gear with his upcoming film Smokin' Aces and has recently announced the selected cast. According to Variety, of the new crew we can expect to see Ryan Reynolds, Jeremy Piven and Alicia Keys set to star along with Ben Affleck [where has he been?] who is planned to play a small but important role.

Smokin' Aces Gets Reynolds, Keys, and Affleck

Joe Carnahan was able to come back and work on his upcoming action/comedy Smokin' Aces, the sequel to Narc, after leaving the crew of Mission Impossible 3 due to 'creative differences.' The film will follow the story of a Las Vegas comedian [Piven] who turns on the same mobsters he had once worked for. This therefore causes not only the arrival of the FBI [Reynolds] to look into the situation, but a number of various assassins [Keys]. It is the FBI's duty to track down the comedian and secure him for his own protection.

The film sounds interesting to say the least and I couldn't be happier with the choice of cast. With the involvement of Ryan Reynolds, expect Smokin' Aces to have a good lean on comedy. You can also catch Reynolds in the upcoming film Waiting and it has also been announced that Reynolds will be teaming up with The Rock in a Lethal Weapon type buddy comedy.

Stay tuned for updates.
