Tarsem and Ryan Reynolds teaming for brain-swap mystery Selfless

Last Updated on August 2, 2021

Tarsem, the wild visionary behind THE CELL and IMMORTALS, is looking to team up with Ryan Reynolds (not so much a visionary) on SELFLESS, an ambitious murder mystery written by CARRIERS scribes David and Alex Pastor.

SELFLESS focuses on a wealthy older man who discovers he’s dying and pays to have his mind transplanted into a younger man’s body. Turns out that body is a cadaver whose previous inhabitant was murdered. Soon, he’s hunted by killers as he tries to get to the bottom of who took him out in the first place.

Love the concept, but I’m hoping the third act isn’t just some trite guns-and-chases bollocks.

Endgame Entertainment and FilmDistrict will co-produce SELFLESS (they joined forces recently on Rian Johnson’s LOOPER).
