Ryan Reynolds is going down a very different route than what he normally does.

According to The Hollywood ReporterReynolds, known for his action movies and more adult comedies, has boarded Everyday Parenting Tips, which will be directed by Paddington director Paul King. Though this isn’t the first time Reynolds has done a family friendly movie. What’s up, Detective Pikachu?

Based on the story of the same name by Simon Rich, the film follows “a dad (Reynolds) dealing with the everyday challenges of family and raising kids made all the most difficult by an ongoing Great Monster Uprising.”

Rich will pen the script for the film as well. Previous adaptations of his work includes the upcoming An American Pickle starring Seth Rogen for HBO Max.

The project was originally developed by  Phil Lord and Chris Miller as part of their first look deal with Universal.

Currently, there is no release date for the project.
