Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds’ time travel movie heads to Netflix

Ryan Reynolds’ upcoming time travel movie is heading to Netflix.

The Deadpool star is gearing up again with filmmaker Shawn Levy for the adventure-thriller – which, at one point, was going by the name Our Time is Adam – for the outing, having just worked with him on video game-inspired comedy Free Guy, which is set to hit cinemas in December.

Paramount was originally developing the project. Now though, the streaming service and Skydance, the duo that recently released Charlize Theron-fronted action The Old Guard, are in charge of bringing it to the small screen.

Watch: Adam Devine, celebs adventure in trailer for Quibi’s ‘Bad Ideas’

July 23 (UPI) — Quibi is giving a glimpse of the new series Bad Ideas with Adam Devine.

The short-form streaming service shared a trailer for the adventure travel series featuring Devine, 36, on Wednesday.

The preview shows Devine and celebrity guests “tackle one terrible idea after another” as they travel the globe, including driving The Death Road, a narrow cliff trail in South America, in an ice cream truck.

“This series is Adam’s twisted take on an adventure series. In each episode, he and a famous actor or comedian will travel to a new location in search of adventures that are already inherently dangerous — only they’ll add their own extra special sauce to ensure they are truly terrible choices,” an official synopsis reads.

Guest stars include Anders Holm, Rebel Wilson, Blake Anderson, Brent Morin, “CJ” Lana Perry and Thomas Middleditch.

In addition to hosting, Devine executive produced

‘Travels with Darley’ launches a new season with 13 travel adventures

A new season of six-time Emmy nominee Darley Newman’s “Travels With Darley” is launching on Ovation TV’s Journy channel on July 15 with a series of 13 travelogues shot in 4K in Europe, Asia, the Middle East and the United States.

Previous seasons of Newman’s travel show have aired on PBS, Amazon Prime and other networks since 2016, but this rollout of new episodes comes at a particularly welcome time. We can’t travel right now, but we can come along for the ride as Newman goes skiing at Tahoe with Jonny Moseley, samples oysters in Morro Bay, swims with sharks in Dubai and samples crepes and galettes in Brittany.

The first episode explores California’s Central Coast with a road trip down the Pacific Coast Highway and stops at Hearst Castle, Solvang and Pismo Beach. (And yes, dune buggies are definitely involved.)

Ryan Reynolds, Shawn Levy Time-Travel Adventure Moves to Netflix

Skydance and Netflix aren’t letting the lack of novel coronavirus control in the U.S. halt movement on the project, with production on track to begin in November in Vancouver.

Reynolds will star as a man who must travel back in time to get help from his 13-year-old self. Together, they encounter their late father, who is now the same age as Reynolds’ character.

The Skydance project, written by Jonathan Tropper, had been set up at Paramount since 2012 and briefly had Tom Cruise attached. T.S. Nowlin and duo Mark Levin and Jennifer Flackett were previous writers.

Although the project was at Paramount, Skydance was driving development.

Both movies were revealed this week to be among the

Patricia Heaton on her encouraging new book ‘Your Second Act’

Patricia Heaton wants to help usher people into their “Second Act.”

In fact, the actress has written a book to do just that. “Your Second Act: Inspiring Stories of Transformation” (out Tuesday) is a collection of essays from people who, as Heaton puts it, “were mostly forced, because of circumstances, to rethink their life and everything they had to do and overcome in order to make that happen.”

Heaton, 62, says the canceled CBS sitcom “Carol’s Second Act” served as partial inspiration for the book. Heaton portrayed the title character, a former teacher who went to medical school later in life.

"Your Second Act: Inspiring Stories of Reinvention," by Patricia Heaton.

From Cosmopolitan

Heading off to college can be an intimidating (and exciting!) adventure. Maybe you’re living on your own for the first time in a new city, away from your parents, and learning how to juggle academic work and way too many fun social opportunities—not to mention that growing pile of laundry in your room. Even if school is in the same town where you grew up, starting a new chapter like college is a great time to make new friends. Plus, in my humble opinion, college besties are in a league of their own. They’re your lifelong crew. Nothing bonds you quite like spending 24/7 together, studying and hanging out and never ever getting enough sleep.

But, yeah, of course, making new friends can be nerve-wracking and even a bit awkward, especially if you’re not outgoing by nature. Which is why I tapped

How to pick the right read and host a virtual discussion on Zoom

Here’s something you can still do very well while staying at home to avoid coronavirus exposure: Read a book.

Another thing you can do effectively while quarantined? Participate in a book club.

Sure, it will be different without everyone piling onto the same couch or convening at a favorite coffee shop. But take it from three book clubbers (longtime host Barbara VanDenburgh, regular reader Mary Cadden and newbie Carly Mallenbaum all collaborated on this story), virtual book club has the potential to be a rewarding and intimate meet-up that serves a calendar commitment you’re actually psyched for.

Plus, you can invite people who don’t live in your city, or even your time zone!

So how do you put together a successful book club while in lockdown? We have some tips:
