Sandra Bullock, Ryan Reynolds re-team

In the categories of Movies You’ve Already Seen (Even Though You Haven’t, Really) comes this news: Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds, who were admittedly quite cute together in “The Proposal,” will co-star in “Most Wanted,” made by the “Proposal” directing/writing duo of Anne Fletcher and Pete Chiarelli. The new movie, we’re told, is an action comedy about a criminal suspect (Bullock) and the FBI agent (Reynolds) who is supposed to be escorting her to court. In other words, far as I can tell, it’s “The Bounty Hunter,” though Universal, which has just acquired “Most Wanted,” says it’s more like “Midnight Run” (for which Universal just happens to be developing a sequel). In any case, it’s sounding awfully familiar. Will Bullock, like Jennifer Aniston before her, spend most of the movie running from the law in a pencil skirt and heels? Will Reynolds have to cutely handcuff her to a bed? Will “Most Wanted” surprise us by being original and funny? Hope springs eternal, on a sunny Tuesday. Off to SIFF now; see you later.

Here they are, in “The Proposal,” right before Bullock does a very funny bit of comedy involving those heels. Cute, no? (Photo copyright 2009, Touchstone Pictures)
