The new comedy is inspired by family film Home Alone, but with a R-rated slant.

The film, to be helmed by Augustine Frizzell, will follow a 20-something loser who misses the plane for his holiday ski trip and gets high at home only to then discover that thieves have broken into his house.

The screenplay has been penned by Kevin Burrows and Matt Mider from an idea by Fox executive Matt Reilly. Reynolds will produce the project through his banner Maximum Effort, with George Dewey as executive producer.

The actor most recently starred in Deadpool 2, which grossed over USD 700 million at the global box office.
