A day after she locked lips with Scarlett Johansson live on stage at the MTV Movie Awards in celebration of her nomination for Best Kiss, word comes that Sandra Bullock is going to reunite with ScarJo’s husband Ryan Reynolds for even more smooching in an action comedy called Most Wanted. Bullock and Reynolds are long-time friends, and The Proposal was a huge hit for both of them last summer, so why wouldn’t they try to milk that mojo for more moolah?
The premise of the story seems simple enough – Reynolds will be playing a U.S. Marshall escorting Bullock to court for her trial only to get ambushed, sending them both on the run. It’s been a while since we’ve seen this kind of thing from Bullock, but we all remember how much we liked Speed – imagine if Keanu Reeves was replaced with someone as charismatic and funny as Reynolds? This could be a recipe for a lot of fun, and action-comedies are usually great sequel fodder, too. Let’s just hope that will turn out better than Speed 2: Cruise Control.
