Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds reteam

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - The creative team behind “The Proposal” — including actors Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds, and director Anne Fletcher — are reuniting for an action comedy project.

“Most Wanted,” which sold to Universal over the weekend, sees Bullock as a woman on the run with Reynolds as an agent who is supposed to be handling her.

The project is described as having a tone similar to that of “Midnight Run,” Universal’s 1988 action comedy starring Robert De Niro and Charles Grodin. Universal is developing a sequel to “Midnight Run.”

The “Most Wanted” pitch originally went to Disney, which grossed more than $317 million from “The Proposal” last year. Disney has since undergone a regime change and is emphasizing family-friendly fare. When Disney passed, the pitch went to the town. Also attached are “Proposal” writer Pete Chiarelli, and producers David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman.
