If you thought Taika Waititi couldn't have any more famous friends, think again as the Kiwi star has just popped up in an epic selfie with some of pop culture's biggest celebs.

20th Century Fox posted the photo of Waititi with Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds, Killing Eve star Jodie Comer, Stranger Things star Joe Keery, Pitch Perfect star Utkarsh Ambudkar and director Shawn Levy.

Waititi retweeted the photo, saying: "Dream come true to work with Ryan Gosnolds for the first time ever!"

The Hollywood dream team were together as they've just started production on the upcoming comedy adventure Free Guy.


According to Collider, the film stars Ryan Reynolds as "a lonely bank teller who discovers he's actually a background character in an open-world video game".

The crew is filming in Boston with Shawn Levy at the helm, a director whose titles range from Date Night to Night at the Museum to This Is Where I Leave You, but who is best known for his work as principal director on Netflix's Stranger Things alongside the Duffer Brothers.

This is one of the first Fox movies to start production under new ownership by Disney and is due to release in July, 2020.

This is not the only time in the last week that Taika has appeared on social media with his famous pals.

Hollywood director Ava DuVernay (13th, A Wrinkle in Time) posted a snap to her Insta-stories with the Kiwi director after the pair hosted a special Mother's Day screening of Merata: How Mum Decolonised the Screen in Los Angeles.
