Looking for 2022's hottest new on-screen couple? You may well have found it in the form of The Lost City. Scroll down for more details.
It pairs Miss Congeniality with Magic Mike
That's Sandra Bullock and Channing Tatum, in case you were wondering. Both are adept at comedy and action, so we can't wait to see their chemistry.
"That's what's so much fun about it, you can take old setups and easily make them new," Bullock tells Entertainment Weekly. "And the fun thing about the male-female narrative is that now we can turn it on its ear because it's no longer, 'This is the woman's role. This is the man's role.' You can mess with all of that and create a whole new dynamic. And that's sort of what we did," she says, crediting the pair's "true comedic partnership" with making it work.
And it's got Harry Potter in it, too
Yes, Daniel Radcliffe pairs with Bullock and Tatum. What's not to like? According to Entertainment Weekly, he's playing the villain, which is not something we've seen Radcliffe do all that often.
The plot sounds like a combo of Raiders of the Lost Ark and Romancing the Stone
According to Entertainment Weekly, the plot is as follows: "Bullock plays brilliant but reclusive author Loretta Sage, famous for writing romance-adventure novels, all of which feature handsome model Alan (Tatum) on the cover. Alan, whom Tatum describes as a 'modern-day Fabio,' has dedicated his life to embodying the hero character, Dash. While on tour promoting her new book with Alan, Loretta is kidnapped by an eccentric billionaire named Fairfax (played by Radcliffe) who hopes that she can lead him to the ancient treasure from her latest story. Thrust into an epic jungle adventure, the unlikely pair will need to work together to survive the elements and find the treasure before it's lost forever. The film, directed by brothers Adam and Aaron Nee, also features Da'Vine Joy Randolph, Patti Harrison, Oscar Nunez, Bowen Yang, and a cameo by Brad Pitt."
Yes, Brad Pitt makes a cameo
"He just came in, and he tore it up. He's really funny," Bullock says of Pitt. Adds Tatum, "He came in and played a certain character that fits into this weird world, and just signed up for it completely and wholly. I've met him, but to get to work with him was a whole different thing. I couldn't focus. It was really an out-of-body experience in a lot of ways."
It's released in 2022
Mark it down: The Lost City is released by Paramount on 25th March 2022.
